Wedding Weekend in Pictures

Before Girls Night Out.

Jill, Melissa, and Erin at Cafe Adobe.

Outside the limo.

Inside the limo.

Picking up Liz from the airport.

The cake present. Each box was wrapped in satin. This was from someone who has been a mentor to my sister and it had all kinds of wonderful things inside - crystal, silver, and other treasures from her own home.

Spa extravaganza.

Lunch with the bridesmaids and the bridesman.

They weren't lying when they called it a pear salad.

Serving up the good stuff.

Jackson enjoying breakfast in Pappaw's chair.

The Bride getting all dolled up.

Melissa and Stephanie.

The Moore girls. I really liked my hair from the side.

The Moore men: Joe, Ben, and Mike Meadows; my dad and my grandpa.

My little fam.

The highly anticipated dance.

Another sweet dance.

The Cottrells and the Fitzpatricks. And I believe the song I mentioned earlier was "Forevermore." Travis, correct me if I'm wrong.

Stealing a kiss.

M-O-B also stands for Mother of Beanie. Here she is after the wedding, cooking dinner for her four-legged daughter.

Beanie was ready for her sisters to fly the coop so she could rule the roost again.

After removing a few bobby pins, my awesome Queen Amadala hairdo looked like a Grand Ole Opry special. We felt the need to document this unique moment in my life.

Fun pictures! Everyone looks so bea-u-ti-ful! I can't believe your mother was cooking in that dress! So funny! She must really love that dog.

The wedding cake present sounds like a very unique idea. How special that must have been for Melissa.

And thanks for telling us the "song." Trav sang that in our worship service a few weeks back when he was in town. It never ceases to draw me to my knees and I had NEVER thought of it as the perfect wedding ceremony song!!

Loved your "Grand Ole Opry" do -- being from the "Home of Country Music" we all wear our hair like that!! Didn't you know???? :)


Unknown said...

I love all the pictures. My favorite comment was your "grand ole opry" hair! hee hee hee hee

Fran said...

Just beautiful Amanda....and that wedding cake gift was gorgeous! I bet many folks will remember that to do for someone else! :)

Thanks again for sharing so much.
Keeping Melissa and Colin in my prayers this week. And...I don't know how your darling momma did Bible study last night. God love her.


Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

I'm loving the bride and groom served Marble Slab...That is always our dessert place after a date (which comes way too rarely I'm sorry to say)

I told you I couldn't wait to see the bridesmaid's dresses. That color was STUNNING. Really looked pretty on you! And the Queen Amidala hair? You rocked it...:)))

Congratulations again to the whole family. What a fabulous weekend!


jamie b said...

Great pictures!! They have a way of telling their own story. :) Thank you for sharing all the details with us. What a wonderful weekend!

Three Fold Cord said...

All of the pictures are wonderful!! Girl, you can really tell you were working out hard. That personal trainer might have gotten you to feel the burn, but it sure paid off 'cause you rocked it in that dress!!!
I do have to say that your mom cooking for the D-O-G in her M-O-B dress 'bout made me fall on the floor in laughter.
Looks like you guys had an amazing weekend!!

Unknown said...

Are you serious? Jacksons little suit...what a little MAN! But well, he IS two now!!!

You all looked...blessed. (And beautiful!)

David said...

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Oh I love the Internet. Those are wonderful pictures, Amanda. I love your dress! And the hair! Oh my. Princess Amadala never had it so good.

And Jackson's suit is priceless. Don't you wish they could wear it more than once?

Favorite picture, though, is you and Melissa at the top of the page. Sisters. Beautiful.

Your hair is so big... and fabulous. Embrace the big hair, Amanda. Embrace it with the love of God.

As you can tell, I feel strongly about the big hair.

connorcolesmom said...

Oh and your hair did look great :)

I love the little suit Jackson had on - he looked like a little stud - hehe!
The bridesmaid dresses looked so pretty and your mom's dress was just fabulous!

Heather said...

Great pictures! You all were beautiful! Thanks for the word picture as well as you recaped the week for lots of people who don't even know you guys :) I love weddings and now that I'm married I cry at every wedding I go to :) I'm sure one day I'll be sobbing at my boys weddings ....

Joanne : The Simple Wife said...

Love your hairdo transformation--it does look suspiciously like the Dolly Parton do I saw on Hannah Montana the other day...!


Finally an Abrigg..... said...

You guys are all so stinking pretty!! I wish my eyelashes were as long as Melissa's. Geez.
My sister gets married on March 15th. She's my older sister by 2 years! This made me so excited!!!!

Serah said...

What amazing pictures and an amazing wedding! I'm sure you all will be talking about it for years to come!

We can't wait to hear the Jackson stories, too!

Dazzling pictures, Amanda! You did a great job of capturing the weekend! Your lil' man looks so adorable in his suit!

Janelle and Ella said...

Everything looked so gorgeous!! I am loving your hair! Y'all are a beautiful family!

Amy T said...

Great pics! Y'all are so gorgeous! And Jackson clutching those cars! Precious. And I loved the picture of the back of your hair. How funny. Thanks for making us feel like we were a part of it.

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

BEAUTIFUL pictures! I just banged my head against the desk when I saw Jackson in his suit with you and Curtis.

And "your color" may be the color of that teal bridesmaid dress. It looks lovely with your skin, hair, etc! Go buy some teal for this Spring!

You look beautiful, and everyone else does too! I love your hair, and ESP the Grand Ole Opry down-do. And your arms/shoulders look great--way to go on those training sessions.

Is your mom making ground beef for Beanie? If so, Milton wants to book a trip there.

Honeycutt Family said...

Great pics of a beautiful wedding!
I love the Marble Slab ice cream pic. My parents used to own 2 of their stores so we definitely favor them over Cold Stone's sticky ice cream! :)

The Milams said...

I saw this b4 seeing the post where you said you liked how your arms looked after working with your trainer. Let me just say, I was having arm-envy. I seriously noticed how tone your arms were!

You all looked great! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Lauren said...

My favorite picture is of the three Moore girls. All three of you look STUNNING, your dresses are all awesome, and I also LOVE all your necklaces. I need to know where you shop for jewelry. :)

Anonymous said...

Now my mental image of the wedding is complete!

Great pics!

Melissa said...

1. Ohmyword, my mother cooks for her dog too. I have to remember not to roll my eyes when I'm there to witness it because she gets Very Defensive about it.

2. WHERE are those bridesmaids' necklaces from?!?! Tell me, so I can go buy one! No wait, don't tell me, it's not in my budget to go necklace-shopping. No, tell me!! I love 'em!!!

3. Sister, you look GOOD! That trainer sure knows his stuff - and your hard work paid off. Way to rock it!

MamaCass said...

You and your mom and your sister are just beautiful. That is a really great picture of the three of you. And Jackson could not be more studly in his suit. Love it!

AKat said...

Amanda, all of your pictures are beautifully stunning.

Momma-of-5 said...

Okay, you're HYSTERICAL! I prayed for y'all all day Saturday. Glad it went well...

fAiThFuL cHiCk said...

I don't even know you guys, and I am getting all choked up by this wedding coverage. The love amongst your family and friends is so evident. Sounds like it was an amazing weekend!

Ashley said...

Thank you for sharing your pictures and stories...they are precious!

And I think it's adorable that your dad changed into his Wranglers and boots. Typical Texan Cowboy!
