The Marry Month of May - Evan and Natasha

Our other wedding last month was in Burke, Virginia - my nephew, Evan Heggestad, married Natasha Muller.  It was so much fun!  We stayed with my brother (father of the groom), so we got to see lots of special events up close and personal. 

Is this a fabulous picture or what? This was taken at the end of the evening, in the dark, as we all gave them a bubble sendoff.  Great photographer!!! (this was by the pro, the rest are mine)

My lovely daughters, Emily and Hannah.

The happy couple - this was her second dress.  She got the second dress "just in case", because her wedding dress seemed like it wouldn't be ready in time.  I think she liked the second dress better - short, cute (just like her), and way more comfortable. You can't tell, but she is wearing super tall shoes, and is still way shorter than Evan.

Here you can see her pretty wedding dress.  Another nice photo by the pro.  Tried to find the name but could not right now.  I will come back and add it later.

Last dance of the evening.  So fun!

The Marry Marry Month of May

So - June is supposed to be the big month for wedding, but we had two to attend in May! Both were special (aren't they all?), and lots of fun.  But it did add to our extremely busy month of May!
1. Casey & Beto's wedding (see below)
2. Evan & Natasha's wedding in Virginia
3. Memorial service in Minnesota for Scott's mom
4. Had our hardwood floors redone in 4 rooms, had to remove EVERYTHING from those rooms, to somewhere else in our very small house.  Lived in the basement bedroom for the duration. 
5. Our doggie got sick while we were in Virginia at wedding #2. 


Bridal shower for Casey - pretty blonde girl on the couch next to her blonde mom, Cindy.  Many years ago, when I had my first baby, I stayed home and did day care to help with the bills.  Casey was one of my charges - so she is very special to me.  I also had her as a piano student for many years.
Casey is a brilliant girl, and a good person.  After graduating from DePaul University, she served in the Peace Corps in Paraguay.  After that, she vacationed in Central and South America before returning to the states.  While in Panama, she met her love - Beto (Roberto). 

Casey coming down the aisle with her dad, Scott.  I love this picture.  Casey absolutely looked like a princess.

The happy couple!  The wedding was at a lovely restaurant and museum near here.  The rain moved the ceremony indoors, but they had a nice room in the museum and it was just such a sweet wedding - performed by her grandfather, and her uncle - both clergy.  Congratulations, Casey and Beto!
