here ya go. i've been getting nagged about pics, and now that my batteries are recharged (both literally, and figuratively!), here ya go.
This is one of the views from Mt. Vernon Gardens. The park is based on a miniaturized version of George Washington's home. It's very close to the Missouri River, and very pretty.
Liam & Sean, looking very dapper in their tuxedos. Liam is a downright chick magnet, as mark put it. Sean refused to button the top button of his shirt, so his tie wouldn't tighten up all the way, but he still looked very good. where's my shotgun? i think i'm gonna need it to keep all the girls off, sigh.
This is Luke, Mark's nephew. He was our ringbearer, and i think he was a bit bored in this picture. Steph took these pictures, and she's got a brief video of Luke walking around his dad during the ceremony. i'll see if i can youtube it, and show it to y'all.
ok, i know, i know, where's the pictures of the bride? ok, here we go:
(cue music, you know what to listen for, lol)
Dum, dum, da dum. dum dum da dum. you know. it was a very bright, sunny day, and hot, so bob (my brother, who was giving me away, as my dad had passed away 5 years ago) insisted that he wear his sunglasses. Mark made me promise to leave mine in the car, so there they stayed until we left for the reception.
Something old: my grandmother's engagement ring.
Something new: A mother's neclace i've never worn, with all the kids' birthstones & mark's.
Something borrowed: My SIL sherril's pearls (real!) and bracelet.
Something blue: lessee, lol. my engagement ring has sapphires. My grandmother's ring has sapphires. and mark's birthstone is aquamarine.
no sixpences, sorry, those damned shoes were so tight i don't think i could have squeaked a fart in them!and then of course there's this:you may notice that the minister has a sling on his arm. I think i'm the only bride in omaha who has a harley-riding minister, at the age of 75!
he was hit by a car about 2 weeks before this, and broke his arm. what you can't see, is that he's also got his right foot in a cam-walker, like mark had to wear, and a knee brace as well. talk about a tough cookie! well, i'm whipped, so you'll have to live with this for now. happy? i know i am, lol.
