I didn't think I'd be feeling so nostalgic

but I've realized that I had a more life changing experience at Mason's wedding than I was expecting. It was a beautiful time. For one thing, the actual wedding was the most gorgeous spectacle I've ever witnessed. The flowers were stunning. The reception was filled with glowing chandeliers, green and white hydrangeas, peonies, roses, and lilies, and my oh so glowing brother. His bride was stunning. I could go on describing the beauty of this wedding but I'll stop.
Then there were the families. The love that was shared between my family and the bride's family was incredible. Usually in-laws don't love each other so much, but it was amazing how everyone got along so well. I stayed with Michelle's (the bride) family and they were awesome. I've never had such gracious hosts. I really miss them. I will forever remember this past week as one of the best in my life. I'm wondering if I'll have as much fun at my own wedding!
I've also never felt so happy for Mason. He was just indescribably happy. When Michelle stepped foot onto the isle I saw his bottom lip start to quiver. It was so cute. Of course I was a wreck... just trying to keep my $70 make-up job in tact. But anyhow, he had one of the prettiest brides ever. And now they're in Hawaii and I'm totally envious ;) It's an amazing thing to see one of your siblings get married. It made me realize how much I love him and how much I want his life to be good. I've never been so blessed as I was last week.


  1. wow, Lauren your description makes me wish I was there. It sounds incredible. I love ya.

  2. Wow, I'm glad you had such an awesome time! I'm sure, however, that you will have more fun at your own wedding! I don't think you need to worry about that!

  3. wow, i feel like i should start with wow. haha. Weddings rock! I totally know how you feel about sibling marriages. I felt the same way with my sisters. It was probably the closest I've ever felt to them.

  4. Her wedding dress is scrumptious, and the floor is all covered with lights!

    I remember meeting you and going to the corn maze...for James to say that you must be a piece. of. work.

    Come again!
