My son Nick was married today. He and his new wife Kelly created their own wedding at Bear Brook State Park. The decorations, table decor, and centerpieces were all made by hand with scrapbooking paper.
They rented a beautiful pavilion.
My daughter Jamie and Nick's friend Greg went early to help set things up.
The flowers in the centerpieces, as well as Kelly's bouquet, were hand-made from the scrapbooking paper as well.
Nick and I spent a few minutes before the wedding waiting for the bride to arrive.

Jamie used some of her football skills to make off with the mailbox full of wedding cards.
Aunt Izzy was looking for a dance partner so Jamie obliged
The new couple had a dessert bar of home-made pastries, so they chose to have a small single layer wedding cake.
They were very nice to each other during the cake-feeding time.
I'm so proud of them for the beautiful job they did. The wedding was beautiful, the food was great, and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.
I wish them lots of love in the years to come.
