Paige & Brock {Wedding}

My cousin Paige got married last weekend and I have to say, it sure was beautiful! The wedding was held at Quarters One, at the Rock Island Armory. Quarters One is a gorgeous private residence built during the Civil War. Because of the location though, nothing is provided, hence the plates. My cousin and uncle searched for weeks buying out all the Goodwill's around of plates for dinner and cake.

 Paige first brought Brock around in 2007 and we've approved ever since. However, this may be the first time I've seen him in person without sunglasses upside-down on the back of his head.

So these girls could not have been cuter if they tried. 

Gah! You're so beautiful Paigey!! 

One of Paige's bridesmaid's mom made the cake - red velvet and super yummy!

We may have taken this picture for the sole reason of letting my aunt see what her hair looked like :)

 Love the heart that appeared in the lights for this picture -
it's actually two strands that just so happened to line up at this angle!

Rachel & Nick {Wedding}

So, as I was working on editing for my cousin Paige's wedding, I realized I had never posted the pictures of Rachel and Nick's wedding from earlier this summer. Oops. I have know Rachel since I was 15 and was so excited to see her get married to someone so perfect for her :)

About 15 minutes until ceremony time, it down-poured for about 10 minutes on this outdoor wedding, leaving a soggy aisle and chairs. So a quick reception venue rearrangement later, wha-la! Indoor wedding complete with lots of beautiful natural sunlight. 

Their cake smash was pretty impressive :)

By the time dinner was done, the outdoor patio space was dry enough for dancing!
