South Dakota Wedding

June 16, 2010

This weekend we drove to the Black Hills of South Dakota to attend one of my best friend’s weddings!

We split the trip into two days – Thursday night during Isaac’s normal sleeping time, and then Friday morning.  Jamie and Isaac had fun running around in a Wyoming rest area:

Once we arrived at the wedding location, Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, Isaac finally got to meet Alison (another best friend)!  Look how happy they are, so cute:

Isaac was also reunited with Emily, who he hasn’t seen since we moved away from Seattle.  She let him wear her new coonskin cap so he could pretend he was Isaac Boone:

Here are Jamie and Sam at the pre-wedding BBQ.  Unfortunately it was rainy and cold in SoDak, but it was still fun!

This was cracking me up…Isaac was LOVING hanging out in the sink in our cabin at Sylvan Lake.  He sat in there feeling the faucet, talking to himself, and smiling for so long:

The morning of the wedding we went for a short hike around Sylvan Lake.  It was so pretty it almost looked fake.

Self-timer photo – not bad!

Later in the afternoon we helped Kristan get the table decorations ready.  Tons of cute red flowers in all sorts of little vases.  Adorable!

After that, we went to Kristan’s cabin to start getting ready.   Five bridesmaids, one bride, one mother of the bride…and one only mirror.  Somehow we all got ready in time without any issues!

The lovely bride right after I applied her eyeliner.  Gorgeous!

Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of the wedding…only of preparation. After all, I was busy being IN the wedding!  I can’t wait to see the professional photos, though, they are going to be so cute.

This is what Jamie and Isaac looked like during the ceremony.  Jamie is blinking in the picture, as usual. They stood in the back of the room bouncing around to ensure there was no screaming.  Isaac did very well, in fact someone else’s kids did more screaming and disrupting than him, so I was very happy. 

He wore blue seersucker pants, a red sweater vest, and a button down fancy blue shirt to the wedding.  Very snazzy, right?

    Playing with butter knives is what wedding dinners are all about!
