Before our ceremony, the girls headed outside (avoiding the guys) and took some pictures beneath the trees. We had so much fun getting ready for the ceremony and I just love these girls. I couldn't have asked for a better group of bridesmaids! And aren't they just lovely in red and pink? Or should I say My colors were cranberry and rose petal?
We couldn't have asked for better weather or more blue skies for our outdoor ceremony. My great aunt Myrtle came to visit me before the ceremony, offering us best wishes for many happy years. And I took some pictures with our beautiful flower girl Katie (I was the flower girl in her mom's wedding years ago! How cool is that?) and our adorable ring bearer, my cousin Lachlan. How handsome is he in that vest and bow tie?
Right before the ceremony the girls were upstairs in the house and the guys were downstairs. I think the pictures of the Ruthy, Danielle and Tori peeking out the window to see the ceremony site are so sweet. And you can tell in those last 2 pictures that I am so excited to marry John! Yay!
Meanwhile, at the ceremony site, guests were pouring in, signing our guest book (a photo book I ordered from Shutterfly) and John and Rob were practicing their special music. The arch that we stood under during the ceremony was created by my mom and it looked unbelievably beautiful. She did such a wonderful job with the vine and flowers.
Coming up tomorrow: the ceremony!
