You probably know how we felt that day. Grateful for the sun breaking through, excited, nervous, emotional, overwhelmed, happy and in love.
There are so many photos- all from the cameras of friends and family. They tell the story better than the sentimental voice of the mother of the bride. I was honored to be invited to walk down the aisle with Erin and Andy, but fought tears the whole way. It all kind of caught me then.
With all the help and love from our friends and family, the wedding and celebration soared past our expectations. Andy called it the homemade wedding which was true. It felt authentic, personal, relaxed and dear. And gosh, it was so much fun!
With the stroke of a magic wand, that flooded parking lot on the edge of the hazy Hudson transformed itself into our enchanted hideaway. A beautiful, starry evening after all.
