Little Sis' Wedding

My little sister was married May 17, 2008. She just got her photos back from the photographer 3 weeks ago. The lady took forever, but they turned out great.

This is one of my favorite pics. Lil Sis and I - We look alike don't you think? Our facial characteristics are very very similar. If I continue losing weight and get back to where I used to be (and where she is now) most people won't be able to tell us apart. I think that is awesome!
This is a pic we took with my best friend. She is the one we took the Rockport trip with a few weeks ago, so you might recognize her from some of those pics.

This is the 3 siblings. I am the oldest, my brother is 2 1/2 years younger than I am and my sis is 2 1/2 years younger than him. It was an absolute joy to have him at my sis' wedding. He was unable to attend mine - he deployed to Iraq that very same day! We are anxiously awaiting his return as he ends his 5 year career in the Air Force and completes his Bachelor's degree while serving in the reserves.

Our maternal grandmother who we adore very much and don't get to see nearly enough. She didn't get to do very much on my sister's wedding gown because of her fall at Easter that banged her up real bad (notice the boot on her foot), but she did all the beading on mine 3+ years ago.

This is the entire gang on my Mother's side. My parents divorced when I was 14 and my father raised us. My mother remarried when I was a senior in high school and this is her clan. From L to R, top row - step brother, step BIL, brother; middle row - step SIL, step sister, me and hubby; bottom row - step dad, mom, step dad's mom, bride and groom.

This is the entire wedding party including ushers. Our dresses are supposed to be copper (my sis is very country and rustic) however in the pics, they look Tsip orange. Most of us being Aggies (9 out of 13 of us - not including the 2 children), didn't care for that too much :)

And finally, us girls. We are all good friends even after the excitement has passed...and the adorable flower girl. We got a kick out of her the entire time. She is 3 yo.

I love the color of the bridesmaids dresses. I agree with Emily, the gathers are very pretty.
