Sasha and Brad's Wedding

A very elegant affair. We travelled up to Cairns for this auspicious occasion, and enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Cairns Colonial Club. I managed to leave my camera at home, so the photos I took were on a borrowed camera. I failed to get a single worthy photo of the bride and groom, but here's a small collection of my more successful shots.

We all enjoyed getting gussied up for the big day. I was very proud of how sweet my little ones looked.

Waiting outside the church for the bride to arrive. Samara and her little cousin, Lailah were perfectly behaved young ladies for the entire day.

Samara was anxious about her flower girl role, and the weight of the flower arrangements they held was astonishing. She wasn't sure she'd make it.

After a wedding at 3, then photos and dinner, it all became to much for Joshua. He's such a good little boy, though, and just put his hands over his ears and fell asleep in spite of the loud music.

At the end of the night, the flowers were a bit bruised, as were the feet of many ladies I spoke to. Now I just have to hurry up and sort out the present, which was almost complete before an unfortunate incident with a tea cup. I need to redo some of it. It will be in the mail soon, Sasha!!

The wedding was beautiful, and the vacation much needed.

I can see where those flowers would be very heavy but they are beautiful - I can see why a bride would be enamored of them.

It looks like you all had a great, if not tiring day! How exciting for your children to be part of the bridal party. The memories will be treasured for years!

I KNOW for an absolute fact that I left a comment here earlier this week (fumes).

However, it was something along the lines of 'Synchronicity!' as our three kids are about to be in a wedding party too and I just can't get over how gorgeous little ones (well, yours and mine anyway) look in their flowergirl/ring bearer gear.

thanks for sharing it!
