Callie & Patrick - a beautiful October wedding

You may have noticed I've been absent from blogging lately.  We've been very busy with wedding plans and 8 days of multiple sets of out-of-town company.  I haven't baked or cooked anything in a long time but hope to get back in the kitchen this weekend.  I hope you don't mind if I share some wedding photos taken by my husband.  It was a wonderful day and we couldn't be happier for them both.  Callie is a wonderful young lady and we are so pleased to welcome her to the family!

Our son Patrick and (now) daughter-in-law Callie were married last Sunday in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in perfect October Virginia weather.  Please take note of the groom and groomsmen wearing green Chuck Taylor sneakers - funny guys.  Green is Callie's favorite color.

Callie and her father Jeff take a walk down the aisle.

Callie sees Patrick waiting for her at the "altar."

The hand off ...

My husband's niece Christi (Patrick's cousin) sang a beautiful song during the ceremony.

Rings and promises were exchanged ...

The first kiss as husband and wife.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs.!

Our daughter Allie was a lovely bridesmaid.

Patrick and Callie come back for photos.

The DJ introduced the couple - they were so happy!

The first dance.

Then others joined in the fun.  

The bride with her flower girl and ring-bearer (he said he was the ring-master - so cute.)

My husbands niece Christi busts a move with her two children.  So much fun!

A beautiful handmade gift for me from my new daughter.

The completely awesome best-man Daniel (our favorite) gave a wonderful heartfelt toast to the couple.  Great job D!  Callie's sister/maid of honor, and the flower girl, lend moral support for the speech.

Nobody spilled any cake.  They must have had a deal.

Here's our little family - son Patrick and wife Callie, and on the right is our daughter Allie and her fiance Josh. Yes we have another wedding coming up - in 8 months!  No rest for this wedding planning family!

Would you believe our daughter Allie caught the bouquet and her fiance Josh caught the garter - yup it was a family affair?! 

The Conga line ended up outside - they had a great DJ that kept party going!

Allie and Josh are at the front and Patrick is dragging some poor woman into the line!

Sending the couple off with bubbles!

Patrick must have threatened somebody to get off so easy with the truck decorations :)

Looks like the truck was full of balloons.

The lovely couple headed to the Acadia Mountains in Maine for their honeymoon.  Last we heard, they are having a great time.  Love you both so much!  See you soon.

We will resume our regular blog program on Monday!  Please check back soon.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
