They did!

I know, I know, it was UNCONSCIONABLE for me to leave you alone all week with the Slender Quenchers and the Fluffy Mackerel Pudding. I know!

It wasn’t intentional, but we were busy busy busy, we went on a very long drive (with kids!) to a very fun wedding weekend, whee!

So this lovely couple:


is now this lovely couple:


and are off enjoying their honeymoon as you sit reading this, but not to worry, we can all enjoy the fun, because I’m sure the bride will be live blogging from her honeymoon all week.


(But seriously? Try Googling “live blogging honeymoon.”)

It was one of the most kid-friendly weddings I’ve ever seen, (at a science museum! with a ball pit! in the reception room! And it was still a lovely, swanky affair, really!). One of my favorite parts was at the church, during the ceremony when a mob of flower children, being all the 25 or so nieces, nephews, former students (bride and groom are both teachers) and children of friends, walked, crawled, ran, skipped and were herded down the aisle, each toting a flower.

I’m pleased to report that Will was an extraordinarily diligent flower boy, holding it out straight in front of him as he literally marched down the aisle. Henry held my hand and walked down the aisle, and things only got a little tense when we were AT THE ALTAR, you know, IN FRONT OF EVERYONE and I was wrestling a Gerber daisy out of his mouth.

But I won.

And since I was busy wrangling my flower baby, I didn’t get to take photos of the blushing minions and their blossoms, but I did snap this one during the ceremony, which might be my favorite of the weekend.


Happy love, Jess and Dan!

    What a great photo! (All of them, actually.) My favorite wedding shots are always the non-traditional ones – the ones that really capture what it was like to be there.

    The whole wedding sounds unique and wonderful.
