AJ's Wedding

Well, I'm sorry it's taken so long to post pictures. Somehow Isaac stashed the camera under the bed, so for a few days we couldn't find it. Not fun for us! But now I can update you on our doings. It was a whirlwind week in NC for us. We had a harrowing trip down with long layovers, delays, and an overly-tired-and-cranky child. I had a lot to do when I got home--organizing decorations for the rehearsal dinner, baking cakes for the dinner, trekking everything up to the restaurant, lots of phone calls, a bridesmaids' luncheon, learning music for the ceremony (which I had neglected to learn beforehand...oops), and taking care of the extended family coming into town. You can imagine why I don't have any pictures of anything before the wedding! Sorry about that, though. Once the wedding came, I was able to take a few breaths and document the event. It was a lovely wedding, and the reception was great too. After our difficult journey down, I wasn't sure how Isaac would do with so many babysitters and transitions, but he was a trooper. Here are the pictures:
Allie getting ready. With an 11am wedding, I was up at 6:30 for my hair appointment. Yay for beauty treatments :/

...and that's pretty much all the guys have to do to get ready. Not too bad!

Dad, the ever photogenic Best Man

Isaac with was a good move to bring Isaac to the second half of the reception. That way everyone got to adore him without him turning into a party-pooper.

Not the greatest picture, but Isaac was totally mesmerized by the band. The drummer even let him bang around a bit at the end of the set! He's going to be a natural :)

There they are...the happy couple!
