Daily Dish~ My Sister’s Wedding Day!

July 16th, 2013 - Daily Dish


It’s hard to believe it’s already been over two weeks since my sister Emily’s BIG day! My sister got married on June 29, 2013, and it was a beautiful day! The weather channel said it was supposed to rain, but of course we prayed and the Lord brought the sun!!! The whole day was simply beautiful!

I thought I would share a snippet of the day in pictures with all of you! (Sorry the pictures  are not the best quality…I didn’t want to carry around my camera at the wedding, so I used my i phone! ) 

We started off the day getting ready at my parents house! The make-up artist was one of the bridesmaids Julie O’Morrow. She is a freelance makeup artist and is sooo talented! {Go check out her work on her FB page!} :)

My sister picked a coral shade for the bridesmaid dresses. The dresses were made by Watters & Watters.

One of our closest friends, Dayna Mager was the extremely talented photographer for the big day! (She is the one wearing tan on the right…She could be our sister don’t you think!?!)

The ceremony and reception took place at Walden Woods in Hartland Michigan. The ceremony was outdoors by the lake, and the reception was indoors. Emily had gold, ivory, and corals for her wedding colors!

They had ‘scoop your own flavored coffee‘ for their favors, which was fun and turned out so cute!

The cakes were made by Geri Yost (the groom’s mom) and Kim DuBuc (the groom’s sister)! How STUNNING are these cakes!?!

The day ‘officially’ began by us girls hiding out as we waited on the guests to arrive! 


I love my baby sister! ;)

And then we walked down the aisle…My sister Sarah and I got to walk down together! ;)

The moment of anticipation…The bride walking to her groom! Surprisingly, I didn’t cry as much as I thought I would have! It was probably a good thing…As I didn’t end up with black eyes from the make-up pouring off! ;)

They said their vows, which they wrote for each other. It was beautiful.

And then it was time for ‘lots’ of pictures!

Here is one of me and my groom! :)

Then the party began…It was time to celebrate the new couple!!!! The reception was so much fun!

We started with toasts, a prayer, and dinner.

And then we enjoyed the amazing cakes!

We finished off the night with dancing, s’mores, and sending off lanters!

It was a day that glorified the Lord for sure and brought so much joy to all who shared in it! I hope this little preview of this beautiful union brought a smile to your face as it did for me! God is so good! (Be sure to check out Emily’s story on how she met Brett and waited on the one God had for her HERE!)

Hi, Thank you for sharing your sisters wedding pictures. They are just beautiful. My daughter is getting married this fall and I am looking for a dress and I love your mother’s tan/beige dress. Can you tell me where I can find it or who the maker/designer is? It is so beautiful and would be perfect.
Thank you,
Leigh Ann
