Wes & Jen: The Wedding

I know some people have been eagerly awaiting pictures from my brother & his beautiful bride's wedding, but I've been delaying because- how do you choose what to post?? They had such a beautiful wedding in such an amazing spot, the pictures couldn't help but be great, and I wasn't sure I could even do a post without completely overwhelming you! So I'll do my best to pick out some favorites and give you just a taste of their beautiful, special day!

The setting was this beautiful venue, Tampa Bay Watch, on the bay in St Pete, by Ft DeSoto Park. It was a gorgeous Saturday in the mid-70s, a warm breeze blowing off the water, sun shining brightly. Jen looked like a model in her wedding dress, and Wes and the guys were very handsome in linen suits. Coral colored bridesmaid dresses, flowers and other touches were a perfect pop of color against the green and blue of the lawn and water.
I think it was just as Jen and Wes wanted it- very laid-back, fun, casual, yet amazing and special. I loved that Jen passed the time before the ceremony playing cards and wore flip flops all day! My sister-in-law and I definitely get along!
Everyone had such a great time and we loved being a part of their special day. It may have been a long time coming, but we all had fun when we got there! And we're wishing Wes & Jen a lifetime of blessings and love!

Georgia and Lincoln were the flower girl and ring bearer, and they did a good job being adorable, as was their job!

Both took a couple of practice runs down the aisle before. Lincoln had the real rings on that little pillow, so we wanted to make sure they made it to their safe destination. And Georgia's practice definitely made perfect- once she got halfway down the aisle during the ceremony she realized she had lots of petals left in her basket, so she started taking handfuls and throwing them up in the air! I don't know if anyone got pictures, but it was precious!

The Rodebush, men looking snazzy!
Peeking on the gathering crowd...
One last minute with his little girl before Daddy Kirby gives her away...

The whole gang...

And the happy couple had a perfect sunset on their beautiful day!

{As I said, this is just a taste of the pictures! If anyone has any pictures from the wedding, we're trying to compile them- please send us an email or mail a cd to me or Wes & Jen. And if you want a copy of any pictures, just let me know!}

What an exclusive wedding pictures! Helped my sister in arranging her first anniversary party last month. Booked one of the alluring Chicago venues online at quite reasonable package. Many amazing facilities were provided by them. Catering services were also praised by all guests. Flower d├ęcor was sober but created an attractive ambience.
