a lovely wedding





Well, my brother got married over the weekend. My mom had only a couple of weeks to throw together a last-minute wedding, and the result was incredibly lovely and intimate. The ceremony was held in my childhood home and was performed by Mark's best friend's dad, a local judge. During the ceremony, Mark sang and played a song on his guitar for June for the first time ever. It was very sweet. Afterward, we all met up at the Row House for the reception dinner, and they served the cutest, tiniest wedding cake ever! I will try to post the rest of the photos to flickr later.

I hope my wedding this August will be just as equally intimate & simple as this wedding. Really beautiful :)
