My little sis got her wedding pictures back, so I sifted through them and picked a few I thought you'd like to see! It was such a beautifully special day for her (and all of us!), and I kind of can't believe it is already over. She was gorgeous and beaming and beautiful. A glowing bride, that's for sure.

Some killer heels! Check those out! Betsy Johnson five inch spikes with leopard, ruffles and sparkles...that about sums up my sister all right! ;) These were hilariously awesome.
One of the beautiful flower girls checking out her 'wedding dwess'. :)
My sister seeing herself all put together for the first time. 'Twas a moment. :)
The other beautiful flower girl!
Last minute touches before heading downstairs to the sanctuary. My hott mama is in mid-bubble-blow. Anything to keep the toddlers happy. ;)
This might be one of my favorites. The boys were walking to the sanctuary when Russell arrived with the girls. Emery spotted Brendon (the groom) and ran to him for a hug. She loves him so much, and he loves her back. He's won this Mommy over with that for sure!
The Hart girls. We've been the Three Musketeers for a very long time. Love them.
(And see what I mean about the freakish extra vertebrae!
We were all in heels. The family freakazoid, I tell you.)
The sign my sister had the girls carry down the aisle in the wagon pulled by their daddy. So cute!
My home church. Simply elegant decorations, and a lovely group of people. The church was packed to watch Caitlin and Brendon tie the knot. Like I said, we have nice people.
My mom, holding back the tears. Russell was right by her side, a background helper like always. Love them.
Glowing, I tell you.
I'm not a big cryer, but the slide show got me when a few pictures of my dad and Caitlin flashed up on the screen. It finally hit me that, through his own choice, he missed the most special day of Caitlin's life. It hurt my heart in that moment, for her, for him, for all of us. But, when I looked out into the audience full of love and support and life-long friendship, I was reminded how God filled up that empty place in my sister's heart and my own. He makes all things new.
The gals. She is beautiful. Stunning.
Had to throw in one of the gorgeous cake! I wished that I could have made my sister's wedding cake, but, alas, the Matron (gag) of Honor duties were a job in and of themselves. It was so much fun being her Matron of Honor, even though I gag at the sound of the word 'matron.' ;)
About to drive off to the honeymoon, but she wanted one more hug from her Mommy. They are the best.
There are about a hundred more pictures I could have posted from Caitlin's big day--they were all so good! She threw a beautiful wedding, but the most beautiful part was how the couple honored the Lord and continue to honor Him with the way they live their lives. These two are going to have such a happy marriage, and I can't wait to watch it unfold.
Cheers to the bride and groom!!!
