Wedding Weekend!~

Last weekend we celebrated the marriage of my cousin Robbie to his wonderful fiance Britta!  We love them both so much and we were honored to be a part of their big day! 

Drew prepared the rehearsal dinner the night before.  It.was.amazing.  Everyone was raving about his Pasta Carbonara, Pork Chops and Green beans!  Delish!  My Aunt decorated the lodge where we were staying and we used some of my Grandma Tonsi's china for the dinner.  Made us feel that she was there and a part of everything. 

 The Lodge where we stayed was unbelievable!  The views of the countryside would take your breath away.  You could see for miles.  The first night Drew, Jules, Tom and I went outside and laid in the grass looking at the stars.  It was so peaceful and beautiful.  Makes me want to pack everything up and move to an acreage in some small town in Iowa! 

 Jules made a new friend with my Aunt's dog Deno.  She followed that poor pup around all weekend.  I don't think he had ever seen so much excitement!  :)
 The wedding was beautiful and they were both so in love and happy.  I loved being a part of it as their scripture reader and loved seeing the love radiate from both of them!

 Someone else was in awe of the day as well.  She loves everything about Britta and loved seeing her look so beautiful in her wedding dress!  :) 

 My handsome date! 

 Jules had fun hanging with Papa Tom.  Adorable.

 After a few drinks, Drew and I hit the dance floor.  He impressed everyone with his moves and we snuggled in close as they played the song we danced to at our wedding as the last song of the night. :) 
 Hot and sweaty after dancing, but more in love than ever.  We kept saying how nice it was to see another couple as happy as we are and truly, truly in love with each other.  We wish Robbie and Britta all of the happiness and love that we have shared over our 7 years together!  It just keeps getting better and better!!!
 On Sunday on the way out of town we had to stop by Albert the Bull (wedding was in Audubon, IA) for a picture.  If you look closely you can see Jules by his foot.  Albert was HUGE!  It was a fun way to end a great weekend!!!
