Part 2 of our 3-Day Weekend in St. Louis
Let's start with a few pre-wedding shots.
On the bed...
Bridezilla... hahaha... just kidding! She was the most calm, most at-ease bride I have ever seen (especially considering that we had an incredibly short time to get everything ready for it!)
And now, the wedding!
First off, I want to apologize for not having any pictures of the actual ceremony, which was breathtaking by the way. Since I was the Maid of Honor and my whole family was in the wedding party, I had to reluctantly hand my SLR over to a friend of my sister's. So what you're seeing here are a few pictures he took with my camera.

From right to left, the Bride & Groom, Best Man Steve, Jon & I, Danielle & Matt, Felicity & Chris, Ring-Bearer Asja, Flower-Girls Sophie & Sydney:
Bride and Bridesmaids (yes, my dress fit... just barely!):

First Dance as husband & wife:
There was some singing...
A lot of dancing...
And a heck of a lot of hugging...
(here is my sister & I with our sweet cousin Olga, who came all the way from Puerto Rico!)
And then it got interesting.
Threshold smesh-hold! How 'bout I carry you over the ice cold fountain, honey?
We couldn't let the bride & groom have all the fun...
So what if we all had rented tuxes, made-to-order dresses and $100 up-do's?!? This was a sympathy soaking...
I stood on the sidelines documenting the festivities, but the second I set my camera down I was carried over the fountain too!!!
Did I ever mention having a crazy family?!
