From Bean to Sprout

a first time mom's forray into parenthood

Going to the Chapel… August 19, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — frombeantosprout @ 8:30 pm

My sister Melissa got married on August 4th. I didn’t get to take many pictures since I was in the wedding party so Chris was on daddy and photographer duty. He also had the responsibility of dressing Henry up for the occasion and I have to say, I LOVED the outfit!

Doesn’t he look like a crazy professor?


This is Henry trying to convince people his scientific theories aren’t crazy… “I’m telling you guys the truth! Why is no one listening to me?!?”


We didn’t get many pictures of the actual wedding (I blame Chris) but there was one group shot he got:

All I zoom in on in this picture is my “awesome” tan lines! I tried so hard all summer not to get any and I got these the weekend before.


We did get a few close family shots.


Henry’s not a fan of being smushed by his parents. It’s too bad you can’t see my dress at all. I look like I’m completely naked!!


Smiles from my guys


Yep, Chris wore his kilt. It was probably the hottest day of the year so I’m not sure if the heavy wool was good or not but he said whenever there was a breeze, he was glad for it.


The wedding itself was great. Like I mentioned above, it was freaking hot! I felt a few times like I was going to pass out in my tight dress. I think bridesmaid dresses are supposed to make you uncomfortable by default eh? There was lots of great food and dancing and an amazing candy buffet that Melissa’s friend set up. It had all these old fashioned jars full of various candies. Henry got to eat a Reese’s peanut butter cup for the first time. It was a delicious mess. Both Chris and Henry left after the speeches but I stuck it out until midnight. Thank god Chris let me sleep in the next morning!
