Wedding weekend in Aggieland

August 11, 2010

in Family,Jill

Well, my youngest sister, Jill, is a married woman now.

July 24th was the big day, and I can’t describe how beautiful, fun, exciting and heartfelt it was.  We had such a great time, she looked amazing and it really couldn’t have been a happier weekend.  I decided to create a collage with captions (the journalism major in me?) to document the oh so memorable event.

1.  Jill Pill and big A before the wedding.  I loved Alex’s hair, a beautiful side bun.  She loved hanging on her Jill Pill, a real-life princess!

2.  We ate Jason’s Deli at the Greenbranch (site of the wedding) while waiting for our turn to get our hair fixed.  Baby C is telling Tia, “I’d rather have that cookie in the box instead of this lettuce.”  Of course, Tia agrees.

3.  Brad’s dad and Mama Dee, Brad’s grandmother, is taking in the applause for the delicious desserts she made for the rehearsal dinner – truly award-winning.  And this is the sweetest lady you’ll ever meet.  So blessed to know her.

4.  The bride with her girls, besides Madee (who’s in the background), at the rehearsal dinner.

5.  The bride and groom the night of the rehearsal dinner.  The dinner, held at the Benjamin Knox Gallery, in College Station, was delicious.  Afterward, we watched a slide show that Jill and Brad created…very meaningful, with lots of pictures of them and family and friends throughout the years.

6.  All the bridesmaids the day of the bridal luncheon…(from left) Abby (Brad’s sister), Lindsey (friend), Lisa (sister), Kelly (sister), Jill, Ashley (friend), Hillary (friend), me (sister).

7.  Christopher chillin’ with Ava and Lily the night of the rehearsal.  This must’ve been after we ran out of gas on the way to the rehearsal (well, we made it there…just ran out right in the parking lot) and locked baby C in the car.   Both WERE MY FAULT!

8.  My beautiful flower girls before the wedding.

9.  All the girls in their wedding attire!

10.  The bride snoozing…anticipating a big night.

11.  Lily playing with her Barbie that Jill Pill got her.  All the girls loved their Barbies.

12.  Tia and Kiki at the rehearsal dinner.  Gosh, I sure have beautiful sisters.

13.  Mimi with her granddaughters (besides Camille)…

14.  Brad, Christopher and Joel – The Mr. Henrys.  I think their previous conversation might’ve gone something like this…”Brad, are you sure this is what you want to do?!?!”

15.  My dad and Jill.  I think he knows the routine.  :)

16.  Love this shot of my Little A looking in the mirror.

17.  The great Tillie fixing hair.

18.  The bridesmaids doing the “fake laugh” for the photographer.

19.  So glad that Lindsey got this shot (along with lots of others)!

20.  Pedicures, of course!

The reception was a blast and beautiful, too.  Maybe when we get the professional pictures back from the photographer I can post some of them.

So happy for Jill and Brad.   Couldn’t have asked for a better man to be married to a sister who I love so much!
