Our reason for being there...

The highpoint of our vacation, our entire reason for being in Nags Head, was wrapped up in this one evening...Saturday night at the beach, which by any account was not just another "night at the beach". It was an evening set aside to watch two lives intertwine into one. Joe and Amy's wedding was finally here!! The weather was perfect...slightly breezy, not hot, perfect blue skies dotted with fluffy white clouds...it really couldn't have been better! We started with photos...here's one of our whole family:The photographer had us facing directly into the sun...it was brutal. We were all (naturally) concerned that none of the pictures would turn out. And if the picture above is any indication, we'll be lucky if any of them do! :)

Ooooo, here she comes...the bride, on the arm of her dad. Look at that big smile...
That's Amy's cousin's husband there officiating. He and Amy's cousin Erin live in Switzerland, and he got his license over the internet so he could come over and officiate. Wasn't that nice of him?
Notice there is no nervousness here in this light grasp of their hands...no tenseness at all...
Sharing a joke while exchanging rings... The kiss...We did it!!Presenting Mr. & Mrs. Joe & Amy Mejstrik!!The kids were at the ready to hand out bottles of water and small washcloths for the guests to wash off their feet...Me and the munchkins...A pic of me & my sweetie, taken by none other than Ms. Kendall...

That looks like such a sweet and simple wedding. And the pics are great - except maybe the one of the whole group facing the sun - LOL!
