the newly joined family
Emily asked me to be a bridesmaid, so I also spent the morning getting my hair done (by my sister Sariah who, along with a cosmetology friend, did the bride's as well as the entire line's hair) decking myself in diamond jewelry, a tiara, clear soled high heeled shoes and a satin sage green dress.

My other sister London was also very involved in the day; she was the wedding planner. The theme for the reception was fairy tales really do come true. She did such an amazing job! It was gorgeous. Every inch of the place was detailed with glass slippers, castles, carriages, fairy tales stories and even a frog prince atop a small fountain (and the majority of the decorations were handmade)! I truly have such talented sisters.
It was a long day, consisting of the actual wedding ceremony, a line and a luncheon, setting-up, another line and a reception and cleaning up. We were going from morning until night. Palmer had a short nap in the morning and went the rest of the day without a wink of sleep. Amazingly enough, he did wonderfully. Needless to say we are all exhausted today! Actually, I think I might have been even more exhausted than I was by the end of my own wedding day. It was a wonderful occasion though, worth the aches of feet crammed into three inch stilettos and the lack of sleep.
We are so very thrilled for Emily and Aaron to be able to start their happily ever after.
