You guys sure know how to party. Family weddings that are more like a party are the best. No stuffy formal weddings for me

Charlotte, I love the way you and your family planned and executed this wedding. It looked so homespun, warm and welcoming yet had very elegant details too. I think your daughter looked great in her dress. I think the dress was very simple yet very sophisticated. Beautiful!


Thanks for posting your great photos. What beautiful people. Everyone looks happy, relaxed and lucky to be in such a magical place. I love all the little touches! Your girls are so beautiful. as are you.

Yes, Charlotte, a very personal, homespun, soulful, yet elegant wedding. Your daughter looked so very beautiful, elegant and happy. I am sure you will treasure your memories of this special day forever.

What a wonderful time you all had! Thanks for sharing your daughter's beautiful, loving, fun wedding. Those pinatas are hilarious - but looked like they had fun w/them.


I love being a fly on the wall and getting to catch glimpses of Erin's wedding, you're so sweet to share with us Charlotte.

Love those pinatas! I've never seen bride and groom ones before, so much fun! And hung together, that's a first to me as well - that's a toughie. Erin's got caught a swing going! :)

Love the flowers in Erin's hair and her bun is so gorgeous, love the twisty strands. So chic and lovely.

Love the picture of all you girls, smiles aplenty.

All in all, a very good night, huh Mom?! :)


Hello Charlotte,

Well...I grew up having handmde non-papier mache pinatas stuffed with candy and coins for my birthday parties...but have never seen one like this at a wedding party! How fun!
Was she filled with stuff?

I think the last two photos really sum everything up. There's a sweetness in the two looking outward together and a poignant significance in the last "And they lived happily ever after" shot where everyone indeed has gone to live out their lovely and beloved lives.

Take care.

Charlotte, your daughter is sooooooooooooooo beautiful!! What a majical evening! xox amy
