Wedding Day!

 Saturday morning was pretty relaxed.  Brian and his guy friends got together before the wedding for a guy party to hang out and play games.  I just hung out with Brian's sister and mom and just relaxed!  Around 1pm the boys got all dressed up and headed to the wedding site to get pictures taken, I still was able to just sit around and do nothing!  Yay me!  After a couple more hours of just hanging out, those not in the wedding party got ready and off we drove to the wedding.  Brian's friend Ismar performed the ceremony, and did a great job and Brian's brother, Eric,was the best man, and Todd was the groomsman.  Marissa had her sister and cousin as her maid of honor and bridesmaid.
After the wedding their was a cocktail hour for the wedding guests while the wedding party got more pictures taken!  The food was yummy and we got to meet a lot more of Brian and Marissa's family!
The reception followed with a sit down dinner, dancing, toasts from immediate family members, more dancing, dessert, more dancing, and more mingling trying to get to know everyone.  Marissa is greek so her family got on the dance floor and did some greek dances and they were also so nice to let us, who had no idea what we were doing join them and teach us.  I have to say, it made me wish I was greek so I would know all the dances.  The reception was over and people headed over to the after party, which Todd and I skipped out on because sleep seemed more of what we needed.  We treasured the uninterrupted nights and the option to sleep in in the mornings.  The weekend came and gone so quickly, but we were so glad we were able to share such a wonderful day with Brian and Marissa!

Thank you to my parents, Todd's parents and Todd's sister who took great care of our boys while we were gone for the weekend.  Our boys didn't even care we were gone for the most part, but they did say they were happy we were back!  The weekend came
