We got back from Swift Current late Monday night. It was determined that Amy and I would travel to Lethbridge on Thursday with the children, and the guys would follow on Friday.
This little man was awfully quiet somewhere in the house... but no harm was done. :o) And it kept him busy for a few minutes, and I had to re-pack that diaper bag anyways.
We arrived at Chloe's house in Lethbridge in good time on Thursday, and ran a couple errands on the way over to her place. She had a couple friends already in town for the wedding who were enjoying her hospitality and helping out with a couple wedding related projects too. Why are alterations always some of the last things to be done? I don't know. However, my bridesmaid dress definitely fit me better after Chloe took up the shoulders for me. :o) Thanks, sis.
Friday, we spent most of the day in-and-out of Chloe's. Enough time to bring the playpen and put the little man down for a nap while we did last minute things and got ready for the wedding rehearsal.
Everyone made it to the rehearsal in good time, where we met up with Josh, who had arrived from Edmonton and was practicing with the worship team, comprised of Chloe's friends from all over Lethbridge and beyond. It was a pretty special group.
And.... when you're a bridesmaid, you don't exactly take pictures during the ceremony. I passed my iPhone to a friend, and she grabbed these couple shots for me.
For amazing pictures, see the website of the photographers:
Walk down memory lane, (ie, the gravel road) with friends from our Chicago days.
Thought of this last second - getting a picture of the girls with both their Grandmothers. :)
We hung around for a day or two, to soak up time with grandparents. :)
And that, as captured by my iPhone, was Chloe's wedding weekend.
The "real" wedding photographers did give me a bunch of their pictures, so I may pop them up in another separate post here in the days to follow. If not, at least there is some record of the wondrous event here on my blog. :o)
