mb + me

My wonderful broski Matthew had a special event this past weekend and I decided it was a big enough event that I should blog about it since it's been awhile. HE GOT MARRIED TO MARYBETH!! woo hoo. It was such a wonderful weekend including the wedding dinner the night before where everybody had matching t-shirts, the temple which was very cold, and the beautiful and very fancy reception at the Capital which included a grand entrance. Overall I was so happy for them and I just love both him and MB very much.

Ethan and Boon just being cool at the reception. Doing what they do all day.

It was so fun because Becca who lives in London flew all the way out with her mom for the wedding. So great to see them. We tried to make it worth her time and give her a cute sparkly dress.

My grandparents even got to come home from their mission in Russia for some medical tests and they were here for the wedding. This was a definite highlight to see them and Nicole since it's been so long. Here's a picture of all the aunts. Love them all.

Sending MB and ME off with sparklers that lasted four minutes. Fun!

Before the reception, my mom showed us all the secret place where you can get free soda since she's a big deal down at the Capital and everybody was looooovin the unlimited amounts of Sprite.


My Edwards aunts and uncles and MaryBeth's mom MaryAnne. (Pretty much just known as the adoring fans of Matthew and MB)

My mom made these bridesmaid dresses! MB's sister Jess (second one in) made her dress which was pink (so fun!) and it had 56 yards of fabric. So many atlented seamstresses!

Flower girls. I couldn't get enough of Naomi and Sage in their fur little coats. When planning the wedding my mom just wanted SOMEBODY in fur and when Sage immediately loved her fur coat and put it on, the wedding was a success to my mom. Sage and Naomi also walked down the stairs as part of the Grand Entrance before Matthew and MB walked down and it was so cute to see them chucking their flower petals and being the BEST flower girls EVER.

Immediate families.

All the cousins singing our own rendition of "Matt's Getting Married in the Morning" at the family party the night before. The best lines of the song were: "He caught a TD, they kissed on TV." Ha and Naomi and Sage danced in front of us throughout the whole song. Very good addition I thought.

Matthew and his best friends. Loved seeing so many of them. Brought back some good memories over the years. Also everybody got matching t-shirts with words all about Matthew and MB on them. What more do you need to make it a good party?

True love.

Cousin love as we anxiously await the arrival of Matthew and MaryBeth.

The Edwards girls (minus MB but she's busy being with Matthew taking pictures etc etc)
