the wedding

My mom got married yesterday.


                                                        {the bride & groom}

It was such a perfect day … the weather cooperated, the park was blooming {SO early for around here}, the family was there and the bride & groom were glowing.

This was a simple wedding, but so classy and special. The ceremony took place in a park in Seattle. The reception at a local restaurant overlooking the Puget Sound. My mom’s dress was this gorgeous silvery grey tiered thing that looked so amazing on her.

My sisters and I were the bridesmaids and wore a black dress of our choice.

I’m so glad all the kids were part of this special day too. Grandma & Grandpa just adore them {as they are equally adored}
