The weather on September 24, 2011 was perfect. It was, perhaps, the first weekend all summer that wasn’t too hot. There was a slight breeze outside not a cloud in the sky. As Michelle prepared for her day she was calm and smiling. Laughter filled the bride’s room as the ladies prepared. The guys kicked back and relaxed with a few adult beverages, RC bumper cars and lots of laughter. Groomsmen often take some fun shots throughout the day. This group was no exception! Just before the ceremony Michelle spend a few special minutes with her parents. Her Mama could barely hold back the tears, which of course, set off a chain reaction. They are so close and you could see her dad’s pride in his eyes as he looked at his baby girl in her wedding gown. Then it was time for the ceremony. As Michelle’s dad gave her away to Chad he said “Take good care of my baby.” Oh, that was it. I was crying! Michelle’s grandparents holding hands during her ceremony. So sweet. And then it was time for the party to start! Michelle’s sister eloped last year. Michelle announced that she wanted Stephanie and her husband to have their first dance. Just another example of how these ladies are not just sister but best friends. Michelle’s grandmother stole the show with her dance moves. I love how feisty she is! How many grandmas know all the words to Superfreak?? This grandma did! After their bubble departure Michelle and Chad walked down to the cabins for their wedding night.
Congratulations Michelle and Chad! May you have many happy years together!
