As you may remember, back in April, I went to visit Ellen, my sister-in-law-to-be. I'm happy to report that Ellen is now my sister-in-law! Ellen and Ryan got married in Minneapolis on December 27. It was a beautiful wedding and we were so happy to be a part of such a special weekend.
Proud parents, waiting for the ceremony to begin (doesn't the last hour before the wedding seem to take forever??).
Finally, it's time! The very handsome Marty boys waiting for their beautiful bridesmaids (and bride!).
Sorry, had to show these off, since they're the work of Soiree Papier (ie, Branden and I)! You can't really see them in the photo, but each place card and menu was embellished with a tiny crystal to coordinate with Ellen's "winter sparkle" motif.
Grandpa's rule: each new Marty wife must give Grandpa the pleasure of at least one dance at her wedding!
The Rowe clan dancing to "Roll Out the Barrel". If you're new to Wisconsin, like I was, every Wisconsin wedding has at least one polka dance. "Roll Out the Barrel" is a favorite!
Sunday gift opening with the Martys and Victors. It was fun to enjoy an intimate brunch with the families and discuss our favorite moments from the big night.
