Carlie's brother walked her down the aisle. Isn't her lace dress gorgeous?
The short ceremony ended with a lovely kiss. I sent this shot to my nephew the next day :)
Carlie thanking her new husband before their first dance, as his proud mom looks on. Carlie's dress was just as pretty from the back, laced up with ribbons.
The party started soon after. Son Nick and daughter Erica enjoyed themselves.
Daughter Elaine--with our "half-baked" grandson providing a perch--practicing on Baby Chloe.The little furry dress cracked me up.
Happy day for the groom's father, my brother Kevin.
My dad also had a good time--seen here with another of his grandsons, Christian, age 17. We were lucky to have nearly the whole family there, missing only my sister's daughter Caitlin, who was unable to come from Missouri due to her work schedule.
Lights and candles were lit at sunset, adding to the mood.
Last rides on the carousel--Elaine and husband Chris took a spin.
The carousel was so pretty at night! It was a lovely venue and a fun party to start off Matt and Carlie's wedded life. This being a public park, there were other visitors to the area who stopped by and peeked in but there were no party crashers, luckily :)
