Here Comes the Bride

Parker and Sara have been newly-weds for almost a month already! He's back on ship - and even out to sea again - and she's waiting to move up there with him. I'm still excited for them! Being married is a lot of fun. Their wedding was beautiful and the day was perfect. The sky was blue, it wasn't too hot or too cold, it was perfect.

Parker and me at the end of the rehearsal dinner.
The day of the wedding started early at Sara's parents house. The bridesmaids were getting hair done and drinking mimosas and just laughing together.

Sara's "something blue" from the inside of her dress. It was a name tape from one of Parker's uniforms - and Sara's new last name!
As the wedding time approached, I was getting more and more anxious about how Eden and Hunter were going to participate. Hunter didn't get a good nap that day, and Eden can be hit or miss when it comes to being the center of attention. Sometimes she loves it, but sometimes she plays shy. Needless to say, they were both awesome - and they looked good too!

When the time came, Hunter walked me down the aisle. Lane was supposed to walk me down the aisle, but since he's gone for now Hunter stepped up and filled his Daddy's shoes. He got to be the "man of the house" for the first time. After walking me down the aisle, Hunter laid on Pop's shoulder through the entire ceremony.
After Hunter and I walked down the aisle, it was Eden's turn. She very peacefully walked with her basket of petals and placed one petal at a time on the runner. Once she made it to the end, she turned to face the guests at the ceremony and she gave her best pageant wave. She walked over to me and she said that she wanted to go sit with her cousins so I told her to go ahead and sit with them. What I didn't realize was that in order to sit with them she was going to walk back up the aisle, placing one petal at a time.

The reception was filled with good food, good drinks, and lots of dancing! We had a blast and we enjoyed celebrating Mr. and Mrs. James Parker Travis!
