Have any of you seen the movie Father of the Bride? The white tent, millions of flowers, nice china and food all around? Get the picture? Well, that was my brother in law's wedding. EVERYTHING turned out more beautiful then you could have possibly imagined. Everything down to the last detail was immaculate. The only disappointing thing is that I forgot my camera! So, thanks to my iPhone we have all of the following pictures. I hope I don't bore you with all these pictures, but you have to see this amazing wedding!

This was the first bunch of roses. The "flower girls" were down there for 3 days straight before the wedding getting all of the beautiful flowers ready in my In Law's basement. They turned out PERFECT!

Here is the second batch of roses. They also had hydrangea's and some other beautiful flowers as accents to all of these roses. Can I say BEAUTIFUL?!?!?!

May 15 it was off to the Manhattan Temple. I LOVE this temple! It is right by Central Park and Julliard School of Arts which is amazing!

Here are Mr. and Mrs. CHECKETTS!! A-MAZ-ING dress!

I had to get a picture of this! Everyone was watching them as they walked across the street to get the group picture. It was like a scene out of a movie.

LET THE PARTY BEGIN! There were family pictures before the reception started so of course I had to get one with my sweetheart! The reception was held at Nate's parents home and it couldn't be more beautiful.

Here is the family minus Gabriel....he stayed home with my parents for the weekend so we could enjoy!

I had to get a picture of the back of her dress because it is beautiful!

Her colors were pink with a hint of mint green. Didn't this turn out AMAZING! You should have seen it at night. The lights were made to have a hint of pink in them. It was magical.

They also made a children's section were they had their own "food" like macaroni and cheese (which was amazing!), chicken fingers and cupcakes. Then if you look closely you will see jars of candy on the tables.

Look at all of this amazing food!!!! This was the same guy who catered our wedding and it was delicious!

In the kids section they hired a balloon guy who was unbelievable! This was the start of one of his masterpieces.....

And this was the end. Crazy cool!

During the program the boys had a little number where they changed the words to "living on a prayer" by Bon Jovi. This was Nate's solo...

Now time to throw the bouquet.... and guess who got it?

my 5 year old niece Abigail!

As you can see this was such a beautiful night! I wish the pictures were more clear, but I am just grateful I had my iPhone so i could take these!!!

Fellow bloggers. If you are by chance actually one of the few who read my blog, don't give up on me! This month, as you read in the title, is wedding month. There is no other explanation for it. we just went to Canada for a reception and then we leave again for New York for my brother-in-law's wedding in the Manhattan temple, and then we have another reception for them out here in Utah.




I will update when I have a second to think about life again.

I promise!
