we just had the BEST weekend...
josh and laura are MARRIED!
I believe laura is the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. she was so classy, radiant, elegant, gorgeous...old hollywood glamour!
(I apologize, there are a lot of pics on this post! I just couldn't choose and mom, I know you want to see them!)
this was a blast!
josh, emma, & laura
we are SO proud of emma rose! this was her first wedding as a flower girl and she was GREAT! we're so thankful for all of the help from port and haynes...they are pros, they've already been in 4 weddings!
aren't the bridesmaids' dresses beautiful!?!? emma loves her alicia brown!
alicia still lives with us and it's been SO wonderful! we hope she never leaves!!!
emma's dress was made by laura's mother marsha...hand made! amazing!
this was chris' 34th...yes, 34th time to be a groomsman. I must say he looks pretty hot in a tux!
the bridal party was HUGE! 12 attendants on each side! great looking party!
emma watched laura's every move all night...she adores her.
this was sweet.
the reception was at the OKC golf club...amazing!!! I wish I had more pics of the cake, the decor, the creative food stations (i.e. a candy bar, coffee car, sushi/spring roll station, quesadilla bar, sweet potato fries with new york strip...need I say more?!?!)
I love this pic (above) of our friends brooke and alex's little boy asher just dancing the night away!
emma & lainey beth
josh and laura love kids so there were tons of little ones at the wedding/reception. lainey beth is such a joy to be around, we wish we spent more time with her! her mommy abbey actually did my make up for my wedding!
favorite pics of the night...
emma has been looking forward to "twirling and dancing" with her daddy all week long. she begged chris to take her dancing and he happily said yes. I went over to grab some pics and saw chris swinging and dancing with her and unexpectedly I teared up! maybe it's the thought of us being here some day, giving our girl(s) away, dancing with them as brides. maybe because my daddy is gone and I still want to twirl with him. not sure. but I know I love this moment.
this was unforgettable.
we are so honored to have been a part of this special day. josh and laura are family to us and we have loved seeing the Lord bring them together and give them the best gift: each other!
love you guys! xoxo
