Violet was so happy to be a flower girl and I shamelessly admit that we used this as a little pick me up a few months ago when our family desperately needed one. We took Vi to a David's Bridal in Memphis and let her try on a million dresses in front of the big mirrors with Nona, Aunt Dani, Aunt Cheri, and Penelope all in tow to help out. It was a nice little bright spot. :)
|It's funny how you can tell how old this is by the kids' hair.|
|I can't with this cuteness.|
We drove 8 million miles for 2 days, but it was worth it for a great stay in PA. We rented a big house with the other Hopper family members, and the kids had a blast hanging out with their cousins.
We attended a nice little bridal shower for Rachel, which also served as a great time for Violet to get a little more comfortable with her since they have only met once before.
And then the rehearsal was a lot of fun. The wedding was at the Rockford Plantation and it was so beautiful. I was ready to have to wrangle Violet, but she stepped up so wonderfully. It gives me hope.
|I totally got the hottest Hopper brother!|
The actual wedding was a hot day, but a nice clear one. The bride and groom were beautiful, the location was perfect, and Violet did not turn into her alter ego, Violent, and ruin anything. Whew!
|I let her do her own makeup.|
|This was when she ran out of flowers and stopped to figure out what to do next.|
|Hugs for daddy.|
|How has my little man become such a grown-up?|
|Always time for a selfie.|
|They had old-fashioned cameras on every table for guests to use - I wonder how those will turn out...|
|One of my new favorite photos - I need a frame for this one.|
We had such a great time, and we have only the best of wishes and the biggest of congratulations to David and Rachel!
