And… we jump forward a month! But I figured I really needed to first of all congratulate our friends Cory and Karen on their BEAUTIFUL wedding on June 14th. I have a few pictures to share.
My hair was done at the Regency school for hair etc… I LOVE IT!
The back with the addition of my own black rose hairclip.
Ken was a groomsman so… TUX!
I hope I held up my end of the stylish bargain. Gotta look good with my man in a tux and NO KIDS
Two groomsmen (Chris and Ken) and an Usher (Matt)… and PAD??
Gorgeous Maid (Matron?) of Honour… Renee!
Still waiting around
One of 2 ring bearers… Evan! ADORABLE
Resting before the ceremony (you can just see the groom at the end) with Usher Anthony (standing)
I have a few from the ceremony but the camera did not like the ambiance and I really had a bad angle. Everyone looked amazing! (I will of course share any official photos I get my hands on eventually!)
Sitting during the ceremony… gorgeous bride !!!
I only knew the bride and the MOA so I really did lean towards pictures of my boys!
Saying their vows
We lucked out and though it was a rainy dad we had the sun peek through during pictures at the farm! And a special thank you to Darcy and Andy for watching our 5 kids to simplify our time out at this special event!!!
Moving the trailer (for pictures) all dressed to the 9’s awsome
Anthony on the tractor
It was a little chilly when the sun came and went BUT the menfolk were sure it was too warm!
Anthony, Ken and Matt resting at the bride’s folks’ house between pictures
Total gentleman shared his coat between pictures
There were lots of creative shots but I was too busy giggling at the menfolk and their jokes or helping where I could to take pictures
Ken took this one for me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress.. the era… it was so fun!
The reception was a blast. I ended up with the adorable ring bearers (Evan and Nathan) and their baby brother (Jeffrey) and their grandparents with Ken at the head table. There was gaming buddies to finally meet with wives, fiances and children. So much fun! Also a photo booth (Ken and I took some pictures together which I have but yet to scan and Renee and I had a go too). I have to admit to cutting loose and drinking for the first time in a decade or more! So not too many pictures, just lots of memories.
Thanks Renee for this picture!
Though Father’s Day was a rather sedate one (as Ken requested) I want to thank all the special men in our lives here who have willingly taken on the responsibility of being a part of our children’s (and our) lives. There is no way we could have as rich and amazing a life without all of you there to share it! So a special thank you to Baba, Grandpa Reinsch, Grandpa Mike… and our God Daddies – Andy, Cory, Alan, Nathan and Scott. Thank you so much!!!
And for the 16th of June – a date special specifically to Ken and myself – we happily celebrated 13 amazing years of marriage. It may not have all been roses and sunshine but with a man like Ken to love and hold onto it has been a ride to remember. I cannot wait to experience all the many decades we have to look forward to. I love you dear!!!! A special thank you to Cousin Robbie and the lovely Alicia who watched the fab 5 so we could get out without minions in tow!
Indian food on recommendation of Shandai… AMAZING
Of course these are just the photos off our camera (and a couple thanks to Renee)… I have one or two on the camera… but I will share those later. Sorry about the massive amount but I had to share!
And of course, it would not be an event if Ken did not take ONE of these!
