picture time was long and hot, due to our giant families, giant bridal party, and the humid July day, but we made the most of it and had a lot of fun. and while we did all of this, the guests were up at the tent and lodge, getting their drink on, playing yard games. so really, it was a win win for everyone involved.
tomorrow, the reception! I'd say that that part was my favorite, but really, I think I love every part the best.
