Erin and Mary tied the knot!!

This weekend was crazy fun! As much as I love weddings, FAMILY weddings are even more awesome. Now that the festivities have come to an end, I am exhausted! It was a whirlwind weekend full of lots of activities - my sister-in-law and her other half (**note to self: must find out how they are referring to each other now.) live on the east coast so they opted for a whole weekend of celebrations here in Seattle. I loved having so much time to visit with everyone!!

I will give a wedding recap later, when we get the pictures back. But I wanted to leave you with two little wedding tips I brought out of this weekend.

First tip. Photo booths rock. Seriously rock!! Special shout out here to Say Cheez Photo Booth for providing all the props and fun. Here is a sampling of the photo strips my little family of five came home with (taken from my smart phone, the quality is much better in person, I promise). SO! MUCH! FUN!

Second tip. Think long and hard before you drop a lot of money on the kids attire. Princessy dresses on toddlers look beautiful at the beginning of the day. But here is what happens at the end of the day, after the toddler has eaten chocolate cupcake and danced and run and had lots of fun.

It is the sign of a good time though, right? I especially love the string of tulle hanging from the skirt.

I promise to post pics of the happy couple and the most beautiful sunny Seattle day soon. But for now, it's time to get out here and enjoy the fireworks! Happy Independence Day!


  1. Bec- I think we should call each other sister in law! Love u! Thanks for everything! Mary

  2. Of course we should Mary! Just wondering how you refer to each other. Wife? Partner? Honey? Snookums?
