Amy's beautiful wedding!

Yesterday was Amy's wedding day. If I were a logical kind of blogger, I would start with pictures of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. However, no one has ever accused me of being logical, so I'm starting with the morning of the wedding. We'll come back to the rehearsal later. There are pictures that need to be posted. Mom and Dad, you know what I mean!

Here is how I found Amy at 11:30 Saturday morning. She had a smile on her face and she was as cool as a cucumber. In fact, that smile stayed on her face all day long, and she never once lost her composure!
First look at the wedding hair! Isn't she pretty??

It took two stylists to tackle my hair. I have a LOT of hair. Raeven did a terrific job of taming it, though, and eventually it was all curled and forced into submission.

Almost done!

We headed off to the chapel ahead of schedule, where Katie, Amy and I decided that it would be in everyone's best interest if we scuffed up our new shoes a bit before the wedding. That turned out to be a VERY good idea. During the reception, I went trotting out into the foyer, hit a wet spot on the tile, and nearly went heels over head. It wouldn't have been pretty.

While we were scuffing, we noticed how enticing the fish pond looked. We decided to check it out.

We still had a couple of hours before the ceremony, so it was time for champaign. Amy has fabulous taste in champaign. It was delicious!

Amy's brother, Stephen arrived next, with our missing bridesmaid, Alicia. She wasn't technically missing, she just had issues with her salon that morning, when her stylist never showed up. She had to make last-minute arrangements, but her hair still looked gorgeous. Here we see Amy, helping Stephen cut the tags off his socks.

Time for make-up! Here are Alicia and Katie, starting the process!

Mary arrived next, to do Amy's make-up. She did such a great job! She's a pro at wedding make-up! If you look closely, you can see April in the mirror. By then, she and Dre had arrived to start shooting. Hi, April!

Time for the dress! Have I mentioned Amy's fabulous taste? Her dress was so beautiful, and the style was perfect to show off her lovely figure.

Almost time go to! Hey, look, I think that's me in the mirror!

The ceremony was beautiful. Dad preaches a heck of a wedding! I didn't get any pictures of that because I was a little busy being the matron of honor at the time. I have confidence that Dre and April captured the moment, though. And speaking of Dre...

Look, a photographer in her natural habitat! Let us not go to Camelot, it is a silly place! I have no explanation for why this picture makes me want to quote Monty Python.

I see that Raevyn at quality cuts did your hair! She always does such a great job!
