This past weekend our family celebrated.
Our hearts expanded.
We shed a ton of happy, bursting with gladness tears.
I gained a beautiful, tender-hearted, loving new sister!
Here is their special day in a few of my favourite photos...
This was the gorgeous scene of their vows.
On the deck of the Vancouver Rowing Club.
Here are the bridesmaids.
(L-R) Meg's sister Kate, Shell, Tam, Ter and myself.
The bridal party!
Mike was the best man.
Caity was a flower girl.
Caleb was an "usher".
Wedding kids with the bride and groom!
Our complete family!
Now all 5 siblings are married.
Adorable flats for the reception.
The girls had matching dresses.
They looked beautiful!
Little Cambi was a crazy cranky baby girl toward the end of the evening but she looks pretty happy here!
The view from the deck was incredible.
I couldn't stop looking at it.
This is the best family picture I was able to get...
The oldest four are cooperating...that counts for something:)
Here's a whole bunch of the kids.
They had a great night.
Meg and Bri were so gracious to invite all these munchkins.
There were fun activities for them on the kids tables, too.
So honoured to be included!
Adorable cupcakes (and guests).
I was thanked and complimented many times for making the cupcakes.
I did not make them.
I enjoyed decorating the table they sat on but that was the extent of my role.
The boys were right next to the coffee.
And the gigantic bowl of sugar cubes.
You can imagine how that turned out.
(let's just say, someone on the deck below ended up with a cupcake on their head...)
Lots of heartfelt speeches.
The quality of character of these two was apparent.
They have so many people who love, respect and admire them.
Their first dance was awesome!
Just a magical night!
(and I had no idea but Brian can dance:)
The kids danced the night away.
It was really fun to watch them!
Madison was dancing like crazy.
People kept telling me "that girl can dance!"
The city view at night was breathtaking!
Just celebrated 13 years of marriage!
Caity played and danced her little heart out.
She eventually reached up to her Aunty Tammy, snuggled up in her arms and conked out.
What a sweetie!
This was the little "bed" we made for our two sweeties.
The music was pounding but they slept right through.
Soon Caleb gave in as well.
I found him laying on two chairs under a table.
Brian and Meghan's wedding was beautiful, special, meaningful and magical.
I wish you all could have been there!
The getaway car!
