A happy, though stressful, day...

I know some people would like to see some pictures from the wedding, so here they are. We had a really great time that day-even with the bumps in the road and the Bride being a bit cranky at the disorganization.  Weddings really would be a lot less stressful if people would listen and follow directions and if the the bride and groom didn't have to depend on others.  :)  Still, it was the happiest day of my life and I have never felt prettier or more like a princess. I was joined by several people that I hold dear in my heart, including Brae Oktober of otterine.com.  Yea!  And everything was made okay and righted when I got to see the way that James was looking at me when I walked down the aisle....like I had always imagined and always hoped that a man would look at me....  Enjoy the pictures!  I narrowed it down to 25 from 2000  :)

Our first dance was to Sinatra's Fly Me to the Moon. We started
in a foxtrot and then had a grande finish.:)

After our quiet moment, he was doing my bustle.  The girls had gone inside to eat.

Bridal Party

Quiet moment for Mr and Mrs Bowen

"You said your vows so seriously."
"That's because I meant them, Wife."

Beautiful!  And look how cute my kids are!!!

Mr and Mrs Bowen

I have never seen him so happy.  :)

Getting a hug from Cayce

Getting a leer from Charlie

Congratulatory hugs from our son.

See his face? See his face?!?!

Me and the girls before.

Charlie looking quite dapper.  :)

Cayce was a tiny 007!  That purse next to him belongs to Brae.
He harassed her while she ate.  :)
Definitely overdone for breakfast at Dunkin Donuts.

The ladies that kept my sanity together (minus my sister). From to right
Bri (Matron of Honor), Me (Bride, duh), Brae (aka Otterine, my twin PEA)
Kim (Bridesmaid) and Stefanie (Bridesmaid)

It's like the wind KNOWS when it needs to come mess up
your do!!

Moment of music to calm our nerves.. and to allow me time to
stop crying.

Daddy walking me down the aisle.

My parents welcoming James into the family


Hurrah!! They finally got married!!!

My dress was overly poofy.  :)

Music doesn't need to be audible for a couple to dance.  <3
