Marwage is what bwings us togever today...
(Princess Bride people!)

And the million-picture post begins...
Blayre and Ryan got married Saturday and our whole world has been revolving around this day for so long...we hardly know what to do with ourselves any more!
My sweet Dad flew out from PA to be the "professional photographer" at Blayre and Ryan's wedding. He almost killed himself (a couple of times!) getting the best shots...like the one above- seriously a gorgeous couple!
It rained until 6:30pm on the picture taking day :( but we were able to find some cool in-door spots- in fact, out of 681 pictures, my dad swears at least 500 were amazing...

Finally no rain!...so a little smooch in the middle of the road won't leave them soaking!



I was the "photographer's assistant"...just in case you're wondering why I'm posting so many pictures of the couple...I feel some ownership here!



Speaking of ownership, this one was my idea...I thought the chairs looked like King and Queen chairs, so this is Queen Blayre and King Ryan...


Friday afternoon I hosted Blayre's bridal shower for the family...I actually fit 27 people into my living room!! Here is the spread, we tried to keep most everything turquoise or yellow!


Thanks to my S.I.L.s (Sara too!) the party went off without a hitch!


Saturday morning was the big event...here are the little girls waiting for Blayre and Ryan to come out.

And here is the family/friends that showed us for the blessed event (My dad was on top of his car to get this shot!!)

Blayre, and now Ryan, have 11 nieces! and all of them looked ADORABLE in their pettiskirts... all the way from Hong Kong (we found a great deal!!)

And they have 10 nephews, who are also pretty cute.

I couldn't help but steal some time away from the photographer to catch some pics of my own cute kiddos.

Could it be? Everyone is sort of smiling!
A Miracle!

Jumping for JOY!

All the nieces and nephews did a dance for the "talent" portion of the reception...(a Ditto family tradition!)

And the brothers sang a lovely little diddy...or maybe not so lovely, so they used the wigs and just made it funny!

And then we danced the night away! It was a Wonderful day and a Fabulous party!! Congratulations Blayre and Ryan!!!

I LOVED peaking into Blayre's wedding. Thanks for posting all the pictures. Sara told me how much stuff you have been doing for it. She's lucky to have sister-in-laws that love to help so much.

Thanks for calling me "sweet!" I love you - and only wish I could have figured out the camera issue sooner! See you soon!
