I know y'all have been patiently waiting for two whole weeks now - so I figured it was about time I posted some pictures from my sister's wedding. Seriously, my pictures don't do justice to how beautiful it all was. She was stunning. Hash was gorgeous (sorry Hash, but it's true). The ceremony was so moving (evidenced by my ugly cry throughout): it was intimate and special and one of my favorite ceremonies I've ever seen or been a part of. It took place in this really beautiful small old church, and my Opa married them. Sabo and Zack ushered people to their seats, Jayci walked down the aisle holding Samaya's hand, and Sincere proudly handed the couple their rings at just the right time (oh and Jayci was shockingly perfectly behaved. And she walked nicely down the aisle and finished with a little dancing to the cello music up at the front before retreating to sit with Adam's parents for the rest of the ceremony). Opa had the couple face the audience throughout the ceremony, which was a beautiful touch that added intimacy, especially in such a small venue. When opa cried, and Hash teared up . . . I might have lost it a little (Or a lot. Whichever).
I made a conscious decision to enjoy this day without worrying about being "the photographer" (she had hired Our Labor of Love after all, and clearly they would do a better job documenting than i would). I did, however, take a few pictures (I mean, I just can't help myself really - particularly when I'm surrounded by so much love and beauty!)
I was so impressed by how calm and collected Sarah was on her wedding morning -- she's getting her make-up done here.
Umm, hello? My sister is beautiful.

Sarah reading the sweet love letter (sealed with wax) that Hash wrote her. So cute - I love them.

Getting all dressed and putting the shoes on. It's almost time!
*There is a large break in my pictures between getting ready and after the ceremony - I'll have to fill those in later for you with official pictures from the official photographer.
I just had to include this one of my handsome ushers and ring-bearer. THERE's that smile Sabo - I love it when you smile!*You can also see some more pictures I took of wedding details on my parents' company's blog here.
