in with the new...part 2


Speaking of new...we were so honored and excited to be present over this break to watch a very special-to-us couple begin their new life together.
We have been friends with Alex for many years and we all love him to death. He is a great role model to our kids, and a ton of fun to be around. We've enjoyed lots of good times together...(like our boys' first ball game at Wrigley!), lots of UFC fights, and good talks over dishes on his visits home from school. ;)
It has been a joy to watch him grow from a young high school kid to a respectful adult entering the next chapter of his life. As much as we love Alex, it couldn't have been more obvious when we met Kate that they belong together and it didn't take long for us to love her just as much.
So, they tied the knot on December 30th. It was abeautiful winter wedding and Abby was delighted to be their flower girl. She took the job very seriously! It was a very special day and we were so happy to be there for it and look forward to watching them start 'the rest of their lives'!
Here's some pictures from all the festivities......

Sweet, sweet pictures! I hope all is going well with your daughter since we last spoke. I'd love to hear how she is doing.

Beautiful pictures!! Did you wear your Grandma's pearls? I think it was perfect to have Em in ivory with a touch of blue and Jenna in blue with a touch of ivory! You did good ;) and Abby looked beautiful too....

So fun to have a winter wedding - where you can still have Christmas lights - I'll bet it was really magical!
