We all spent today recovering and napping from such a crazy busy week. My daughter’s wedding was beautiful. There wasn’t any drama or craziness. Just a beautiful moment in the lives of two special people starting a new chapter in their lives. Not a dry eye in the house during the ceremony. :-)
It was a small intimate gathering of just the bride and groom’s immediate families … plus my dad and his mother (Kelsey’s 103-year-old great-grandma!). When we get the photos from the photographer, I’ll post more. Right now we only have a couple of photos from the event (I purposely left my camera behind so that I’d stay in the moment and not get lost behind the lens). I’m glad I did that … but now I just have to sit around and be patient for other photos to trickle in from other folks.
I know some people were wondering if Kelsey would need to skip cutting a cake because of her Celiac and her need to stay away from all gluten (she also can’t have eggs, milk or sugar which ruled out even a traditional gluten-free cake). Well, thanks to the creativity and research done by her new mother-in-law and sister-in-law (who made the cake), they came up with an idea for a layered watermelon “cake” frosted with cashew-cream.
It was sooooooooooooooo adorable and 100% Kelsey-safe! Instead of feeding each other bites of cake, they fed each other berries from the cake. It was all just so cute. :-)
And yes, that’s a Lego bride and groom on top. :-)
More details to come … and more photos, too!
