A wedding post!

groom The last few days have been amazing! The lead up to my sister’s wedding has been very exciting and so much fun! (apologies in advance for the excessive amount of exclamation points used in this post) The last few days that i have spent with my family, especially my three sisters, i know i will cherish forever. I feel so lucky and incredibly blessed to have such gorgeous, kind hearted and FUN women as my sisters. And talk about HOT!!! Just look at how gorgeous they all are!! Stunners!!  🙂 The bride and groom were married at a gorgeous winery, just out of town. Guests enjoyed an assortment of lawn games (DIY projects by the bride) while the wedding party were having pictures taken. Pastel flowers, flowing gowns and a gorgeous backdrop created the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Alexander!!! Enough talk – here are the pictures that sum up the day.

    You girls are stunning. I have to say those bridesmaid dresses are the most beautiful dresses I have seen. Mandy you and your sisters look like ethereal goddesses, Amy looks absolutely gorgeous. So glad you had such a lovely weekend to celebrate

      The dresses were beautiful! Amy has great taste. I didn’t get enough pics of the bride’s dress, but it was breathtaking…stunning really. I cried when I first saw her wearing it.

    The wedding looked incredible Mandy & so different! Everyone couldn’t have helped but enjoy themselves immensely!

    What a great comment in your visitors book too – a great first entry.

    Will talk soon and see if we can organize a trip to Gil soon if the kids still want to go again.

    What a gorgeous event. And I can’t believe you have such grown up children. You look about 25! That’s a great gene pool you’re swimming in.

    • April 23, 2013 / 12:04 am

      Ha! Thank you, but I can assure you I don’t look 25 close up…and I feel about 80!! It really was a lovely day.

    Haha! Just reading your comments! You mustn’t of felt 80 when you were doing the worm on the floor later that night! Speaking of which, Gordon got a great photo of you doing it! I’ll show you later. The day was pretty special, was so happy everyone enjoyed themselves. Thankyou so much for taking photos, they are my favourite from the day! ^_^
