Daniel and Emily: wedding!!! :D :D {ashelynn manor, magnolia, tx wedding photographer}

May 17, 2012

Yaaaaaay!! :DMy brother is now married and I now have a sister in law 🙂 :).

The happy happy, fun day was last Saturday, May 12.

Their wedding was held at the beautiful Ashelynn Manor in Magnolia, TX.
Their wedding was at 10:00, so we all had to get up early and get there for pictures. Here’s Mom and Jay (brother and groomsman #2) :D.
Jeremy Gilliam of Jeremy Gilliam Photography was the photographer. We talked about photography at the rehearsal and he was so nice and encouraging! He also pretty much let me second shoot whenever I wanted.    I’m very thankful :D.
Papa and Dad lookin’ sharp :D. (Papa is Mom’s dad).
Then of course Allix B. and I had to get a friend shot :D.
Yay for my two happy, beautiful best friends!! Amanda, Allix, I love y’all :).
My beautiful mother being ushered by our dear friend who’s pretty much family, Brad Rychlik :D.
My handsome dad :).
Corbin Skinner (Emily’s cousin) and Emily’s mom Shana :).

Daniel was SOOO excited!! It’s was wonderful :D.

Josiah Graves and Dani Havard.
Paul Connell and Karen Brown.
Adam Magstadt and Rachel Dearinger.
Jay Greene and Lauren Christian.
Jay making sure his hands are right. Hehe :D.
David Ruga and Hannah McConnell.
All of the groomsmen fist pounded Daniel as they walked by :D.
Cute little Emma :D.
Look how excited he is!! I’m tellin’ ya, it was such a happy day :D.
Here she comes looking beautiful 🙂 :).
I didn’t take pictures during the ceremony (since I wasn’t official or anything and didn’t want to distract since I was right up front), so here they are MARRIED!! 😀 :D.
I loved how they did a color spectrum :D. (Look at Emily laughing, by the way. Hehe 😀 ).
Good looking wedding party :D.
And a happy one too :D.
Hey, Brad. Haha :D.
The reception was beautiful!!
Havin’ fun in the food line :D.
Grand entrance! 😀
I know I already said this, but I love these girls so much.
Love these two too. Haha :D.
Yaaaaay!! Man, they looked good :D.
Snapped this of Josiah in the food line. Lol :).
The other brother and I :D.
Singing to him. Hehe :).
Sooo sweet.
Their joy brings a smile to everyone’s face :D.
Way to go, Daniel!! Haha :D.
Emily and her dad look so cute :D.
Then the dancing began :D. And so many of their friends and family are REALLY good dancers! Mainly in the swing dancing area. It was SOO fun to watch 😀 :D.
After we girls tried for the bouquet (which I didn’t catch. lol), the guys tried for the garter (which was NEVER on Emily’s leg!! I was so happy how Daniel did it. He kind of grabbed her ankle, retracted his hand, made a deep thinking face, then a light bulb came on, and he found the garter in her veil!! He made it look like a magic trick and I loved it :D. No awkwardness).
David Wiens thoroughly enjoyed his victory. Haha :D.
More dancing :D.
I LOVE this photo!! It has a magazine feel :D.
Papa and Mamie :D.
Then Daniel’s old college floor (the 41rs) came out and went crazy!! It was so fun :D. Especially to this classic techno song.
Corbin joined in too. Lol.
Yaaay for this shot!
Time to go!
😀 😀
My dear brother Daniel, I praise the Lord for what He has given you 🙂 :). I love you!!!
With a smile…a really BIG one,
