I Love Weddings EVEN more when I get to see extended family at them!!
AND I Love Weddings when I can tell the couple is TRULY in LOVE...
Kyle is one of the many Bird Cousins. Cory is the beautiful Bride who I just fell in LOVE with from the first time I meet her! She is the PERFECT match to Kyle, and I am SO happy for them!!
They took family pictures and we had a little cocktail hour. Which I noticed the waiters were shocked that half the guests were not drinking the freely flowing wine; that is what happens when over half your family is Mormon! HA HA! The kids liked the cheese and crackers that was served and I even let them have a little Sprite! Then we went indoors for the real food.
When the new couple entered the room; everything felt complete. The Star Wars Theme played as they made it to the dance floor for their first dance. We all got to enjoy a slide show of the couple as they grew up when the salads made the way out. OH... that salad... it was SO good! Blue Cheese, Candied Walnuts, Apples, and a soft dressing to DIE for... I could have had seconds!! THEN the main course. I am a "meat and potatoes girls" so I opted for the Fillet Mignon. GOOD CHOICE! It came with veggies and potatoes and I had no idea how hungry I was until I had completely finished the food!
It was a nice and relaxing meal. Our table consisted of siblings; Matt and I, Melissa Imel and her husband Nate, and Kevin and his girlfriend Kristen (I hope I spelled her name right...) Of course Matt and Kevin did most of the talking. I just enjoyed sitting back and enjoying my peace and quiet; the kids were with the babysitters that Kyle and Cory had arranged. The babysitter just happened to be my little sister Sharon and her friend Carly; so the kids liked playing up with them more than being a part of the party... so I got to eat in PEACE and QUIET... not something that happens often at our house.
Landon and his dancing skills...
It was a GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL!!!
Congratulations to Kyle, Cory and Baby Olivia!
You sure make a BEAUTIFUL Family!!
