Ally and Bill's Wedding July 23, 2010

The weather was beautiful. A little windy and my hair got messed up but who's complaining?  A little hot and humid and we were all schvitzing, but who can complain.  I lost one of the brand new citrine and diamond earrings I just bought for this occasion and got sand in my contact lenses every time that wind kicked up and I was so busy talking I forgot to eat the food, but really who can complain? Not me. Did I mention I got my first moving violation for driving through a red light that day?

Very pretty pictures. Looked absolutely perfect.
It had a relaxed elegant feel to it, and most importantly, everyone seemed to be enjoying it and themselves.

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
