And now she's married!

...and I'm still sorting out pictures.

But I do have a few candid snapshots to share:

Big sister Erin zips up the dress.

The bride and her college friends, who traveled from the States to be part of the big day.

The white gold filigree brooch pinned in the center of the flower is an heirloom from my great-great Aunt Florrie. My mother would have been very happy to see it on Abbi's wedding dress.

Mama and Dad walking Abbi down the aisle:

The couple's first dance as man and wife:

Abbi and her beloved sister Erin relaxing at the head table.

It was a lovely ceremony.

I managed to sing "The Blessing."

And I didn't cry.

The food and dancing at the reception were wonderful, and my little girl is now a missus!

Welcome to the family, Rich!!

Just beautiful !! This looks like a joyful day for all of you, and it's great that you had a beautiful sunny day for it.

Love every dress i see in these photos - yours is wonderful! Abbi really had time to hand-make those flowers? That's so cool.
