I left St. Louis early Saturday morning to go to my parents. My brother's family was already in town, so I was anxious to get in and see them all, especially Jack. When I got in, Jackson had just gone down for a nap, which ended up working out because it gave us a chance to catch up a little bit. Once he woke up, my mom and I took Jack on a stroller walk to Hallmark. Apparently we are all very last minute people, because no one of us had gotten wedding cards! It wasn't too long after lunch that we were all getting ready and heading out to the farm - the afternoon just really flew by.
The wedding was absolutely amazing. From the venue to the music at the ceremony to the ceremony itself, it was all just extremely special. My cousin is my brother's age, and she had one of their high school friends who is now a pastor, officiate. It was so neat seeing him up there, and it made it that much more personal. My cousin looked AMAZING. My aunt made ALL the food, which included a soup, salad and main course. Everything was really delicious and just the effort put into it all by everyone was wonderful. I can't really put into words how great everything turned out, so I will let the pictures do the talking. The best part though, was being able to catch up with so many people. My dad has a large family and with people all over the place, weddings give us an opportunity to all come together.
Shout out to my dad - he made the doors! And my mom suggested the mason jars - too cute!
Jack was up early the next morning so I got some extra time in with him, which I just love. We had a yummy breakfast, then my brother's family left. I hung out a bit more with my parents and took a walk with my mom before I headed back to St. Louis. For some reason, the drive seemed like it was taking forever, so I was super thankful when I actually got home. The rest of the day was spent relaxing and getting a few things ready for the week. If only the weekends were just one day longer!
Linking up with Biana.
