It was a lovely evening on Friday, June 13th--Perfect for an outdoor wedding. Jon, my youngest sibling and his now-wife Dani picked the perfect day possible, as the next day brought crazy thunderstorms all evening.
This has been a very bittersweet week for us, as we think about what should have been. We should have been holding our sweet baby, but instead we only have pictures and memories and grief.
However, we were able to truly enjoy the wedding all the celebrations surrounding it.
Here is Jon, with Miriam:
My father and mother. I thought my mom looked absolutely lovely:
Dani and her father:
I now pronounce you husband and wife:
Jon and Dani hadn't kissed on the lips since January 1st. They kissed a lot during the wedding celebration!
Some other pictures from the wedding.
My nephew Gavin. Isn't he sweet? He's a litte lover and a talker. I really enjoy being around him:
I made the clothing my children wore. Here's Miriam and her cousin Lyra:
My boys. I made Alex and Noah's shirts.
Jon and Dani with the twins they babysit. These dear, sweet babies are close to my heart. They were born on Christmas day and their mother died on New Year's. They are little girls missing their mother and I'm a mother missing my little girl:
The back of Dani's dress:
Just my kiddos. I loved their outfits. They were all made from Heather Ross fabrics. I love this line. LOVE it:
This is one of my other nephews, Moses. His mama is a stylist and she cut his hair last week. Then Gavin asked her to give him a mohawk, too "pweese". Moses is a spitfire. I don't have to be around him long before I'm laughing away.
