The Day I Got A Brother

One year ago today, Big Sis and BIL got married. It was such an exciting happy day for our family. I remember not being able to keep a huge smile off my face throughout the entire ceremony. It was such a beautiful and exciting day. Big Sis looked beautiful!!! And we were so glad to add a brother to our family. Here are some of my fav. pics of the day.

Bridesmaids' bouquets. The Bride carried the couple's Bible with a calla lily tied on with a ribbon.

Lil Sis and I. Aka the best bridesmaids ever!

My sister is gorgeous!!

The bride and our cousin, the Ring Bearer. So cute!

And his sister, the adorable flower girl!!

Big Sis and Momma. Beautiful!


Me walkin' down the aisle.

My cutie pie cousins, who moments before (unbeknownst to us at the time) were having a shoving match as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle :)

The Beautiful Bride walking down the aisle with Daddy.

The wedding party during the ceremony.

Evidence that I was smiling big all day. (Click on the pic to make it bigger) Look at the other Bridesmaids' faces, look at mine (you can see my teeth ;) while I try to awkwardly hold two bouquets... because that's the kind of bridesmaid I am.

Such a beautiful, happy couple!

Mr. and Mrs. R!!

Lil Sis and I always share everything, even a groomsman!

Momma's side of the family... it's hard to get this many people to smile at once...

My absolute favorite picture of the day!!!

The whole Bean Family!

Tables at the reception.

Lil Sis and her boyfriend.

I brought my lil cousin/the flower girl up to the head table to eat cake with me :) She was so excited!

Daddy and I.

Most of Daddy's side of the family minus all the cousins.

Doing the Macarena!!! Good Times.

Uncle K and I dancing to "Out of my League," then, my very favorite slow song.

Happy Anniversary Big Sis and Bro in Law!!!!

P.S. None of these are pics taken by their wedding photographer. These are mostly taken by Uncle K and a few by Momma and Lil Sis.
