The invitations were pretty cute, if I do say so myself:
I found all of these frames (below) for waaay cheap at the Alabama Thrift Store and then sprayed them all red. I later filled them with pics of the happy couple throughout their courtship and used them to decorate around my house...
...like this (below).
So, eventually the guests started arriving. Here is a shot of Laura (middle) with two of her dearest friends and two of her seven bridesmaids:
I was teasing Jonathan and Laura about how life changes as a young adult. Did they ever believe they would be excited to receive pots, pans, and dishes as presents? But overall, they were tickled at the "loot" showered upon them. They received a gorgeous throw blanket, some dishes, a beautiful pewter University of Alabama serving dish, a shower curtain, some new equipment for the home office, a Japanese Maple tree for their new yard, a set of Pyrex glass casserole pans, and more!
Well, wedding season is upon us. We have the holidays, too, but then there's a great big ol' family wedding to anticipate.
