Family Wedding Fun

My brother-in-law tied the knot this past weekend and we had such a great time celebrating with him, his new bride and her family.
We stayed at the hotel where the wedding was at and enjoyed two of the most perfect sunshiney April days on Lake Winnipesaukee!

Some favorite shots from the weekend.....
A family photo from the rehearsal....
 I love how close the cousins are in our family.
Mark was the best man and all of our kids had roles in the wedding - in fact there were ten children total in the wedding party.  Getting ready.....
I'm pretty much speechless right here!
Our little nephew Mark is going to be a heartbreaker one day!  
This guy - speechless again!  Wasn't he born, like, a year ago?
Could the flower girls get any cuter?
The happy couple.
My baby girl had her first pair of teeny tiny heels on for the occasion.  I'm verklempt.
The bride has two boys who are quite possibly the sweetest and most polite children on the planet.  
Sean is so excited to have new cousins his age!
How many framed pictures can I possibly have in my house??
It doesn't get much better than seeing your family mucking it up on the dance floor!
Thankfully Sean saved a couple dances for his mom.
I even got one out of Peter!

The perfect end to a wonderful weekend...

We laughed so much that my face seriously ached on Sunday!  If this weekend is a sign of what's to come, I'd say the newly married couple will have a very happy life together!

How sweet is that? My cousin got married last fall and we got similar photos as you (despite the protest I got as I chased them around for some shots that were Christmas Card Worthy!). You have a beautiful family! Your oldest looks about the same age as mine, and I have really been wondering where the time has gone. He's gotten so big and grown-up lately, it's breaking my heart just a little bit, as I still so readily remember him as my baby boy!

You are gorgeous! And what a beautiful family you have. Family weddings always make me wish we had more excuses to get everyone together like that!
