A Perfect Day

Yesterday we all went to Tracie and Kevin's picturesque wedding in Havre de Grace, Maryland. The setting was amazing and tears filled my eyes when I heard "There is Love" playing softly during the unity candle lighting. Again at the end of the ceremony, my heart caught in my throat as I heard the words, "You may kiss the bride," - but not because I was feeling all warm and fuzzy - though I was.

It was because my lovely, sweet, eighteen-month old's face had just crumpled in an end-of-the-world kind of way, and I knew what the wailing that was about to be unleashed would sound like. I grabbed her very quickly and tossed her in a tight bear hug against my shoulder, which luckily enough stopped the torrent of emotion that was about to be unleashed. Apparently she was devastated that Kevin is now officially a taken man.

I love how absolutely happy and unposed Kevin and Tracie are in this photo. Maddie loved the flower petals that were raining down on them.

After the ceremony was over, Maddie was a little distraught that no one was picking up the petals. "Ugh oh!" So she began picking them up.

She walked down the aisle for the first time, too.

She had such a good time that when we got home she kept saying "happy" and pointing to herself.

Dakota, Maddie, the bump, and I all had a wonderful time and we felt honored to be a part of Kevin and Tracie's special day!
