Just Get Me To The Church On Time

Well a few weeks ago my beautiful sister got married to a really awesome dude!  I was able to fly to Utah again to be there for it!  I was so grateful to get that oppurtunity!  It was so cool that all the siblings got to be together in the temple!  It was so fun to be able to look around and see everyone!  :( sadley Eric was not able to come, but it was okay, I had my lovely sister Mel to be my date!  The morning before the wedding day all the girls went to breakfast at Kneaders.  It was really fun to get to meet Jeffs family and have all the girls together in a less formal setting.
I got to see Lacie and Paisley again!

I finally got to hold little baby Evan and meet him for real! He is so adorable!

That night Jeffs family hosted a family dinner at the restaurant Carrabas.  It was fun to get all together and get to know everyone!  Some family gave speeches, and of coarse Mom carried on the tradition of singin!

  Julianna looked beautiful and the reception turned out awesome!  I know my dad must have had a party that night because he finally got all his kids married!  He's all done folks, no more, and I know he is thrilled to not have to go through anymore weddings!  Of coarse I was thrilled because Jules let me help with decorations :) my favorite.  My amazing Aunt and Grandma came out too, so with them, and my sister I think we made it look pretty darn good!  Now my sister isn't really into decorating so she didn't give us much to go on.  All we knew was that their colors were red, black, and ivory, she really liked trees, and she wanted it simple.  So here is the finished result.

   we had a giant tree at the reception where people wrote notes and hung them on the tree.  The sign says "Please leaf a piece of advice for the Bride and Groom."

Here is the sign in table with the amazing signing book my sister in law Lacie made.

Here is the gift table

the gorgeous picture table my sister did!

All around the room they had these really deep window seals that I decorated all differently.

This is what we did on half of the tables

Here is what we did on the other half of the tables.

 My sister in law Nicole did all the flowers as well and they looked amazing!

The canopy over the cakes is actually part of a tiki hut Eric and I made for his brothers wedding dinner.   We needed something last minute to go over it and hey this was sitting in the shed, and it was free.  Haha we adapted it a bit and made it work!  I don't think it looks that bad for last minute and free!
 Geeze we could open our own one stop wedding shop!  We got the entertainment, the decorators, the florist, the photographers and all shorts of stuff!  It would be amazing haha my dad would probably leave the family!  Oh well a girl can dream right?  Well everything turned out just lovely and I'm so happy for Jules and Jeff!  Love you guys!  While I was in

Utah I also got to see Erics family which was awesome!  My sister Amy, my Mama Nancy, and I went to get our  nails done and partied it up!

  As you can see Amy and I had some fun in Best Buy while we waited for mom to make a purchase.  She really liked the continuous shooting mood on my camera so we were having fun playing around and doing ninja moves all through out the store.

I'm sad that I didn't get to see the rest of the family or spend more time with them.  But it was a super quick trip so I'm glad I got to see them at all!  Family is the most important thing!  I'm so grateful for all the amazing family I have who love Me and Eric!  Anywho folks that's all for now!
