Well... we are all cleaned up and washed and put away...The wedding day is now a memory and thankfully we all survived and are happy.
|Official Wedding Party: Laila, Alfie, Sophia, Andrew, Truman, Monson, Lexi, Katelyn, Lindsey, Bre, Addison, Landon and Alex|
|New Welch Girls|
It was kind of a blurr for me but a few moments stand out....
The ring ceremony rehearsal dinner the night before with a house full of crazy family members, Mickey Larsen...wedding planner extraordinaire.... ordering us all around trying to keep it "light"...and all done without Monson because he couldn't miss school.
Finding a 44 oz. Big Al......diet coke and a Si cookie on my counter for breakfast.
The Billy Ball Boutinere fiasco...with allergy, puffed, tearing eyes of Addison and Landon. Once we realized the "weed balls" were causing problems, we quickly took off the boutinere's and chucked them.
Monson and Lexi in a "wedding kiss dip" just outside the temple doors.
All of the bridesmaids and mommas piled in the down stairs bathroom getting Lexi ready.
Lexi informing us at 4pm the day of the wedding that she hadn't spoken to the cake lady and didn't know if she would have a cake or not.. The cake lady came through with a Michigan glutten free carrot cake and an amazing strawberries dipped in chocolate cake.
The wedding party being introduced like a basketball team, all coming in carrying giant Maverick drink cups because they stopped the limo on the way to the dinner and picked up drinks.
Monson and Lexi dancing to "All of Me".... and Sophia and Andrew slow dancing as well.
Truman trying not to cry as he said such nice, funny and appropriate things as the Best Man.
Being in the Bride's Room in the Temple, getting Lexi ready in her temple dress and priesthood robes to be sealed for Time and All Eternity...then changing her into her wedding dress. She is sooo beautiful no matter what she is wearing.
Pinning Monson's boutinere on and kissing his cheek telling him he's my favorite.
Holding lauging, noisy Alfie while the Ring Ceremony went on.
Setting up the Wheeler Farm venue with tables, chairs, cloths, burlap, dinner wear, lights, fabric... waitng for Olive Garden food and our guests to arrive.
Having my dad show up in a wheelchair....so happy he made it to our home and the Temple.
Looking around the Sealing room in the temple and seeing so many family and friends and feeling so much love... missing my momma but knowing she was there.
Monson playing his guitar and singing "Lemonade" to Lexi
Lexi saying, "Oh yes" when Pres. Hess and Elder Tingey told them they should kiss...
