Jon and Leah's Wedding

Last weekend we traveled to go to Jon and Leah's wedding. We left on Friday afternoon. Hailey did really well in the car and we only had to stop a couple of times. Friday night Hailey got to stay in a hotel for the first time. She slept okay but was a bit tired when it was time for the wedding. I thought this would be a good thing and hoped she would sleep right through the wedding. She had other plans. When the preacher asked if anyone objected to the marriage of Jon and Leah, Hailey blew some raspberries, screeched and giggled. We tried to quiet her, but it was not going to happen. So, I took her to the nursery. The nursery was in the back of the church and had a two-way mirror so I could actually still see the ceremony. It was cool and dark in the nursery and Hailey promptly went to sleep. She continued to sleep after the ceremony had ended so I stayed in there with her. Rich had our camera and I had asked him to take pictures for me. So, imagine my surprise when later on I went to look at our pictures and found these:

A lovely close-up of my cousin Beka
A wonderful shot of cousin Bill's ear
A nice picture of cousin Vicki taking a picture of Rich.
A close-up of my dad.
A flattering picture of my sister-in-law Ellie.
At every event we go to where there is a cake,
Rich "leaves his mark" on the cake and takes
a picture of it. So, apparently this is a photo
of his handy work.
A bug on my brother Mike.
A lovely profile picture of my brother Matt.
A close-up of cousin Aimee's ear.
A nice shot of Uncle Bob trying to take a picture.

Rich also took a few other pictures and after Hailey's nap I took over the camera. So, come back tomorrow to see the few good pictures I did get.

Oh, the husbands always do have their own way of doing things...I try to remember that is what keeps life fun and interesting. In any event, I had fun and a few giggles laughing at all the ear shots! ;) Thanks for sharing!

What a photographer!!!!! Does he hire out his services for weddings? I'm sure there will be brides and grooms from all over wanting him to do their weddings. lol

Carrie said...

Your husband and mind take the exact same kind of pictures! LOL Although, every now and then there will be one or two that make it through ok. Sheesh!
Hope you're having a good week!
