Caroline + Parker get married!

Thursday, August 15, 2013

I'm still coming down from a four day trip to St. Louis to witness CK's sister Caroline and her now husband Parker get married.

So much love was shared during this marriage celebration that my simple words couldn't properly give justice to the experience. From the bridal luncheon, the lovely vineyard ceremony/reception setting, meeting new friends/family, dancing and the happiness that surrounded the couple it was spectacular. 

I'm lucky to be marrying into this family.

The #Parkoline (get it? Parker + Caroline) wedding party at the rehearsal.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Parker McDougal! These two are my future sister and brother-in-law, guys!

The beautiful bride and handsome groom at Chandler Hill Vineyards (such an awesome venue) + the three flower girls taking in the view + My other future sister-in-law, Maggie, signing the marriage certificate + My future father-in-law, Mark, toasting the bride and groom.

I wish Parker and Caroline nothing but happiness in the future, but they don't really need my best wishes because they are the real deal - to Mr. and Mrs. McDougal!

The rest of the weekend was wedding recovery mode with a heaping side of family fun time. Saturday night we had a cookout at CK's Dad and Florence's where amazing friends the Schmitt's and Nations came over for good times.

The United Nations + Mistiburr trying to master the Easy Bake Oven (harder than it looks) + The mini-cookies from said Easy Bake Oven.... delicious?

My only regret from the weekend? My cellphone dying right after the wedding ceremony and not taking enough pictures of the rest of the weekend. Luckily the above photos do the job.

Another great weekend in STL is in the books and I can't wait to do it all over again soon.

Happy Thursday, kids.


Comments are cool. This is a fact.
