Wedding Pictures 2

We had a program after the reception - more of a light-hearted time after the seriousness of the ceremony. Neither of us knew all of what was planned and we really enjoyed it, in spite of some embarrasing moments...This is Aaron and I during a prayer.
Rachel was one of my personal attendants (she did a great job - and it was special to have her with me...she was trying to tell me that married life was wonderful...and she was right :) ) and here she's adjusting my crown a few minutes before the wedding. In case you hadn't noticed - these pictures are out of order.
13 girls - cousins, church and piano friends - were waitresses. Aunt Linda sewed matching black aprons for them and Mrs. Harris machine embroidered the names on them. The girls did a great job!
Another "almost kiss" :)
Throwing the boquet - I never was very good at throwing....
The bride and her three bridemaids from another wedding in '08! Sara, Jennie, Jennie, and Lexi
Before the wedding, I was researching why and how to cut the cake. It's to symbolize the couples willingness to care for each other. Long, long ago the groom would smash the cake over the brides head to show his authority over her...I agree that Aaron has the authority, but I still am glad we don't go with that tradition! There's also a superstition that it's bad luck to leave the wedding without tasting the cake! - and that if you sleep with a piece of it under your pillow you'll dream about your future mate. I suggested that to my siblings, but we agreed that we don't believe in such things. It's white to match the bride's dress. Yes, we did save the top tier and I guess how they ended up eating that for the 1st anniversary, was they used to eat it at the christianing of the first child.
We only did get one bite of the cake!
Aaron's brother, Nathan - it got down to about -20 degrees F that night.
Mathias and JoAnna were very cute as the ring bearer and flower girl and didn't seem nervous at all :) Instead of flower petals, JoAnna dropped snowlike glitter.
Hosanna - I had Miriam as my maid-of-honor because she's the oldest, but then, Hosanna gets to be at Miriam's wedding - or something like that.
Aunt Ellen was in charge of flowers - here she's giving Grandpa his corsage.
Daniel and Hannah figuring out the lighting for picture-taking!
