The "getting ready" time period before the wedding is always fun. Everyone is happy, excited, nervous...it's a great high!
And, of course, I get a chance to scope out some of the details from the day!
Tiffany and David's first glance at the alter where - very soon! - they would be married.
I love this one of the girls in the back room waiting for the ceremony to start.
Okay, I knew Tiffany was nice. I know you're maybe thinking that someone couldn't possibly be THAT pretty and nice too, but she really is! And this picture shows exactly how nice and good-hearted she really is:
Yes, my friends, that is Tiffany allowing a small child to put lipstick on her...minutes before she went down the aisle...in her white wedding dress.
The flower girl truly adored her.
Ceremony time! I love this church! St. Paul Methodist (in Lincoln). Beautiful for weddings!
Note the umbrellas - it was raining! Good thing it's luck on your wedding day! :)
On the way to the reception we stopped at a small park for some newly-married-couple-pics. The stormy skies made a beautiful background!
I think Tiff and David look like they've stepped straight out of a magazine here. Killer!!
Then....PARTY TIME! This is while we were waiting for the wedding party to be introduced.
Those brooches are a good lead-in to the reception...Tiffany did an amazing job of tying all the details together! Those brooches match the one on her dress, and....
The ones on the cake! Look how gorgeous their cake is! It might be one of my favorite cakes ever, including over my own!
Oh, man...first dance! Swoon!
See that candelabra screen in the background? When we first arrived at the reception location, it fell over ON TOP OF David and a couple other bridal party members! Can you believe it?? Scary! David had wax all over the back of him...and just to show you how laid-back these two were, all he did was...switch coats with another member of the wedding party. Smooth!
Speaking of David, in what is now a Byrkit family tradition, his grandma brought a pink boa to the dance floor and danced with him. So cute and funny!
Confession? I kind of love bouquet and garter tosses and am sad that I don't get to partake anymore, now that I'm an old married woman. Sigh.
One of the many, many special things that happened during their reception was a song performed by one of their great friends, who also acted as the DJ for the evening. He was amazing!
Tiffany and David, thanks for an amazing time! You are both amazing and I wish you much love in your long life together! :)
