THE big Day -- Auntie Lori becomes Mrs. Fitzsimmons - Aug. 4, 2012

So, this is the day that we have been waiting and planning for. Lori had all of the bridal party meet for breakfast to kick off the day. We met at this really cute country cafe and had some very good eats. The scenery was the best part. We were in the middle of a few wineries and around all of the grapes - it was gorgeous and was proving to be a beautiful day!

After breakfast we headed back to the house really fast to take quick showers and get our dresses. Then it was off to Cornerstone to get all fancy and to get Emily down for her nap so that we could have a happy flower girl.

The bride getting all pretty.
Emily sat so good while her hair was done, she loves to do girlie things.
Leslie did all of our make up!

Once Emily woke up she was providing the entertainment.

Emily and Mommy all ready for pictures.
The flowers got delivered.....

This is the little house where the Bridal Party got ready.


After we came back from pictures I heard laughing in the bedroom and this is what I found. Emily loves to look at herself in the mirror all the while talking to herself.

Now it was time to head over for the ceremony, here is the backdrop. Words cannot explain the beauty.

More from the Rehearsal...

I found these pictures from the Rehearsal and had to post them. The flower girl and Patrick, the ring bearer. He was helping her pick up the flowers after her practice run of dropping them.....

They were kind of walking together......Emily tends to take over and can be kind of bossy. I am told that she gets this from her mom, but I am pretty sure that I still have all of mine.....
I know that I am her mom and all, but can she get any cuter?????Patrick is really cute too, they were so cute together!
