So here are the photos I took for all of you. First, the rehearsal dinner. As the groom's parents, this was the event we hosted. Here are my sister, brother-in-law, my other son (the best man), his girlfriend, my daughter and one of the groomsmen--some of the first to arrive. We held it at The Pinnacle Club in Augusta, GA.
It stormed as we arrived, then soon cleared. Here's the gorgeous view of the Savannah River we had from The Crystal Room! A beautiful rainbow ordered just for the bride and groom. ;)
Then Saturday was wedding day! Here's the gorgeous alter table, photos I took before the service. I wish I had one with the candles lit.
Since my daughter was a bridesmaid, I spent the day with the bride and bridesmaids But I took this shot on a quick visit to the groom to see how handsome the guys looked in all their finery. He looked so happy!
Here's a shot I took over the photographer's shoulder. :) A photo of the beautiful bride and her bridesmaids.
Skipping ahead to post-wedding photos. A dip kiss of the bride.
Oh, wait! I did take a photo of the alter table while the candles were lit!
I love this shot.
Here's a cute one outside after the wedding. Sarah's train had gotten stepped on, and it broke the bustle. So Nick was trying to help her hold it (until I was able to sew a new loop later at the dinner reception).
Here's a stunning shot of the dinner reception venue, Sacred Heart Cultural Center. I was blown away when I first walked in.
And the sweet mother-son dance. I ended up crying through most of it! He had to tell me I needed to stop before I made him cry. :)
And since this is The Cafe, I had to share a photo of the wedding cake! It was beautiful. They also had smaller cakes in different flavors (chocolate/yellow marble, strawberry and lemon).
I have to add what I thought was a very sweet part of the service. My husband and Sarah's dad are both United Methodist pastors. They've been good friends for almost thirty years. They did the ceremony together, which made it very meaningful. I didn't think Nick would appreciate me pulling out my phone and taking a photo during the service. LOL But the photographer shared a photo on her blog post that shows the two dads together with Nick and Sarah. I love it.
If you've hung out with me this long, thank you! I appreciate you celebrating the occasion with me. :)
