it was SO NICE for me to go to a wedding and just relax and enjoy. the last wedding that i went to was my own and i was a bridesmaid in the two before that one!
it's so interesting learning about different wedding traditions in different areas. for example, one thing that is common in omaha, but i've never seen before (in texas) is having a long gap between the ceremony and reception. the ceremony was at 2. but the wedding party didn't arrive to the reception until 7. the time in between was filled with a trolley ride around omaha and bar hopping and pictures! it was a great way for the couple to spend a little more time with the wedding party!
the best man practicing his speech.
pretty stained glass at the church.
this is the groom's huge family. he is one of seven siblings and he already has 14 nieces and nephews! (it was a big wedding!)
the happy couple in front of olley the trolley!
in the trolley.
at the reception the bride and groom did this hilarious sing-along to meatloaf's paradise by the dashboard lights. (forgive my poor videography skills!)
congratulations mr. and mrs. bragg!
