The wedding

Well, it's official! She's now Mrs. Littrell! Yay, Jenny! It was a beautiful wedding! Jenny, Cara (bridesmaid) and I pulled up in a 55 Chevy driven by my dad. The setting was Harbor Island Park, next to the ocean. The view was Coronado and the downtown San Diego skyline, beautiful! We walked down the aisle to music played by a talented harpist. Jenny was a gorgeous bride in a strapless cream colored gown with beading on the bodice and in the back. She wore her long hair in curls cascading down her back and she had a floaty veil in her hair, as well as red roses. Her bouquet was velvetly red roses and dark red calla lilies. She and Justin looked sooo happy and so in love. There was even a special tribute to Jenny and Justin's beloved grandmothers who both recently passed away. Jenny had pictures of them on charms in her bouquet, also. How I wish Grandma had been there. She was definitely on our minds that day. She really liked Justin!
The reception was at Tom Ham's, a restaurant overlooking the ocean. What a fun party! The guests were treated to a delicious dinner, as well as a special show. Jenny's belly dance troupe performed for the crowd and were a hit. It was a lovely evening and I am so proud of my sister. She planned a wonderful event, a wedding to remember. It was perfect! Now the happy couple are off to Florida for a few days at Disney World and a trip to the Florida Keys.
Congrats to Jenny & Justin! I love you both! :-)

Congrats to your sister! The pictures are beautiful. She was a lovely bride and her wedding sounded perfect.
You looked great, too, in your red bridesmaid dress. I bet it was fun to be part of another wedding again. Seems like we are in the baby stage now, so weddings are a little more sparce between family and friends.
I am enjoying your blog. Hi to Joe and your boys.
Love ya,
Colleen :-)
