5 Years Ago, A Wedding...

It's weird to think that 5 years ago today...
We were all gathering to get all dolled up to have one heck of a party!

My mom was really the person behind the scenes for my wedding...
Everyone helped out, but she is the one that really led the team on this one...

So today, 5 years ago, after all the planning was done...
We partied well into the night,
And still to this day, hear about how it was one of the best wedding party events to have attended...

So here are some pictures that I found last night on my back-up hard drive...
Funny how timing works out...
I was searching for original Marsha Neal Studio back up stuff and found these...

Our "first" dance with our parents looking on...

My mom's side immediate family including my great-grandmother (she's still around)...
My mom with her "kiddos"...

Aunt Patty, Dave, myself, and my mom Pattie.
Patty and Pattie were childhood friends and whenever they were together,
The room got loud (very loud) with laughter and very funny stories...

Dancing well into the night at the wedding...
Live music at a wedding can't be beat - especially when you tell the band to have fun and play for the crowd, not for the "wedding".
The open bar helped too I bet!

Mom with Danny at the rehearsal dinner...
My favorite picture of them - they were so relaxed and having a great time!

So, I'll post more as I come across photos and scan them...
Thanks for all the great memories from such a wonderful day...
You made it a day to remember!!!

Thanks Mary Jane!
One of the best things I got from my mom was my sense of happiness in just about any situation... including the accompanying big smile and crinkly nose.
I never knew a wedding day could be so laid back and fun... a true celebration! We'll always keep that close to us (and thankful we have video and pictures!)
