Every summer for the last three years there as been a wedding in my family. August 2010 - Jacob and I, October 2011 - my brother Dustin and his wife Brittany, this year we celebrated my brother Scott and his now-wife Jennifer! The ceremony and reception were held at my parents house (which stressed my mother out to no end!) and it was gorgeous. My mom, dad and helpers put a lot of work into the hard and the house to transform it for Scott & Jennifer's special day.
(I don't have any photos of the back yard, where the real magic happened, but I took advantage of the landscaping for our family photos earlier in the summer!)
It was a great (busy) day. I think it was my first day (aside from work) that I was away from Emily for the majority of it. Between hair/make up, dressing, decorating and photos I didn't have much time. Jacob did an amazing job keeping her happy and entertained... even took her out to breakfast. =) We had to leave the reception earlier than I would have liked to get back to our hotel as it was Em's bedtime and she was not sleeping very soundly at my parents place, but we had a great time when we were there... I sure do miss the days of staying out late and dancing!
