Last weekend the Cotter siblings were completed with the final addition of Uncle Tom! Everything about it was beautiful and I can't help but pass on some highlights!
We were super busy from the moment we arrived beginning with a wine and chocolate night to finish up crafting! Kelly came up with all kinds of ways to add a personal touch to each part of the wedding as you will see.
But first we feasted at a ladies luncheon the next morning.
All of the Cotter women
Since we were ALL in the wedding the rehearsal that night was a big test. Paul and Mary Clare made it down the aisle, although Paul looked very concerned the whole time.
But isn't his little sign adorable!
One of the cousins wasn't too keen on Pop-Pop walking down the aisle without him.
The rehearsal dinner was near the union station, so the kids got to watch the trains go by every 20 minutes or so which was sheer brilliance and kept them entertained the whole night!
Saturday morning was spent primping as you can imagine, but Mary Clare was there with her ponies to keep Aunt Kelly company.
I don't have any pictures of the ceremony because it is frowned upon to bring your own camera with you when you walk down the aisle, but here is what happened.
Mary Clare when down the aisle without hesitation. Paul made two valiant efforts that got him about 1/3 of the way there, but ultimately decided to decline the invitation. Lots of people + non-visible Mom and Dad + no nap = uninterested. He then proceeded to fall asleep within the first 5 minutes of sitting in his pew and that was that.
Fortunatlley he woke up in time to ride on the trolley to the reception.

Kelly works for the Conservation Fund, so she had a park theme for the reception. When you arrived you picked up your name tent and took it to your National Park.
Dinner was delicious and we loved the photo booth!...
Congratulations Tom and Kelly!
