A few weeks back (life has been so busy I can't believe its been almost a month!) we had the privilege of attending a good friend's wedding.
Shannon has been a good friend of my sister since elementary school. With all the time they spent together at church and at our house I got to know her pretty well myself through the years. Shannon is also a teacher so we could always laugh about our students, commiserate with each other, and just compare stories about the craziness of the job :). Good times :).
It's been so fun to see where life has taken her and now its so great to celebrate the adventurous journey she now shares with her love Michael.
The wedding was at a beautiful venue in Mill Valley, CA. It shouldn't have taken us more than two hours to get to the venue that day, but for some reason it seemed like everyone was on the road that day and headed to the city. It took us FOUR HOURS to get there!! The girls were troopers, but it was a little rough along the way. We made it to our hotel room with about 45 minutes to spare to get ready and get to the wedding, but we made it on time :).
The ceremony was held outside in a beautiful courtyard. The special thing about this wedding was that Krystal was the maid of honor and Norah was the flower girl, They both looked beautiful :). Norah walked down the isle with my sister, but along the way saw my mom and I think wanted to sit with her cousins, so she started to cry and her dad held her the rest of the time. Every wedding has to have at least one hiccup right?! :)
And yes, Krystal really is this tall and I'm really that short :).
We had a great time eating delicious food, were kept busy by trying to keep tabs on three busy, excited girls, visiting with friends, and celebrating the happy couple. Krystal gave an amazing toast and evening was filled with sweet memories shared of Michael and Shannon.
Lucy was the happiest of course when she was eating.
The night was complete with homemade root beer floats (which the root beers were also the yummy favors), cake, and dancing.
The three girls danced the night away with their daddys :).
And by "dance the night away" I mean it. They stayed up WAY past their bedtimes.
The quote on the root beer bottle was perfect:
Now at last they were beginning
Chapter One of the Great Story
no one on earth has ever read,
which goes on forever,
in which every chapter
is better than the one before.
- C.S. Lewis
Congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Prior!!
