My cousin, Helen, is getting married on April 28th, 2012 to the mostly lovely man to put up with our family (minus Mike and Brian), Jon! They are getting married at St. Wilfrid's Church, our family church, and having their reception at a beautiful hotel that over looks a soccer field! They even get to go down to the pitch (read: field) to take pictures, how cool is that?! I was also asked to be a Bridesmaid, which is just the greatest thing ever-I love being a Bridesmaid (yes, I really do and I really did just say that!), it's really exciting and special to be allowed to be with a Bride as she gets ready for the ceremony and to help with anything that needs to be done that day in preparation. Mike and I are already really excited about going back to England again to celebrate, we know their wedding is going to be fantastic and are so happy for Helen & Jon, and their future together!!

LOTS, and I mean lots, of people roll their eyes about weddings, Brides, and the whole "over the top-ness" of it all. Not this girl! It's a special time for any couple that decides to take on the sanctity of marriage, and should be treated as such. No matter how a couple decides to declare their committment to each other, it's all about that declaration, first and foremost, not the centerpieces, cake or color of napkins. And it's so exciting and wonderful!!!! Yay!! On a somewhat related note, have you seen my husband's dance moves?!?! You want that guy at your wedding, he's half the party all by himself!! :)
P.S. Random tidbit about England: You aren't allowed to bring drinks on the dance floor. This, obviously, make complete sense but the Mahoney's and I were amazed to learn this! You're welcome for the useless piece of information that you'll probably never need again :)
