THE LAST WEDDING PICTURES

I have finally reached the last of the wedding pictures, except for the photographers, which we should have in a few weeks. These were taken with Emily's camera and pretty much show how much fun the wedding party had on this special day. This is a picture of Emily and Abigail {both bridesmaids} posing in front of an old Cadillac. It's rare that I have a picture of my two daughters together, so this is getting framed. ;-D
Back on the Chicago lakefront, the wedding party posed for pictures..
Kevin went from grammar school to college with his groomsmen. They are a fun bunch.
Home Sweet Home
On the bus to and from the lake...the wedding party had a little party of their own with sandwiches and refreshments.
Kevin has never worn a ring in his life. This, he will treasure.
The happy couple.
All in a days work...
After the wedding reception. people migrated to my nephew's pub, Blackthorn. The Husband and I, of course, went home. It was a long day!
Abby posing with my sister in law, Karen. Karen reads my blog and while she is doing housework, she dances to my playlist.
Emily posing with her uncles, Marty and Jim.
Marty and Karen
Abby and her boyfriend, Tom. She wore his jacket because she was cold, but left her shoes at the bar and came home barefoot.
Emily and her boyfriend, Mike.
Shall we call it a day?

I will be back soon with some normal blogging. Much is happening in Blondieville, some renovations in the kitchen and the preparations for Emily's graduation party {sigh}. Thanks again for being so kind working your way through these pictures. I think it was the best wedding I was ever at. Mary Clare and Kevin made all of their dreams come true. I hope they live a long and happy life together! :-)

Shirley said...

Hi Jane, I have truly enjoyed the pictures that you share of your son's wedding. Her boots made me think of my daughter when she got married. She threaten to wear her work boots if she couldn't find a pair of shoes. It is truly an enjoyable time and you will have the memories for a long time to come. I am hoping to see a picture of you in the beautiful dress that you chose for the special day. It is turning back off hot. I hope it will cool down. We are going to a wedding Saturday evening. My great-niece is getting married. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

So much fun to dip into this momentous celebration and get to be a fly on the wall. I love it and congratulations. I laughed when I read that you pooped out and went home. Who can blame you?

All joys,

I just read both wedding posts...I really loved sharing your joy with you. They look wonderful together, it really looks like such a fun day and I am so glad it all went well. I love the picture of your girls! We didn't get to see a picture of you all dolled up??

As for the K-cups? I order most of mine from Keurig. They have specials now and then and free shipping if you order 4 boxes. I love the huge selection they have and they come within a couple of days.
