Welcome to the program! If you're just joining us, this is the part where I SHOW LOTS AND LOTS OF PRETTY PICTURES!!!!
So I'm at a complete loss as to how you're 'supposed' to do recaps, so I'm just jumpin' on in! I'm going to start with the boys getting ready because they took far less time than we did... and for some reason, in my mind, that means they go first... I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that the girls are prettier... hmmm.
Either way, I feel like recaps require more fancy words and intros, but then that would just bore you anyway, so, without further ado!!!...
The guys got to Riverdale Manor before the ladies did, which seems to have been a life saver since the men took an inordinate amount of time figuring out their suspenders:
Uh oh, Dad looks panicked ;)
Boys! My dad and brother also wore each others' suspenders... I was also told there was a lot of pantslessness. Thankfully the second photographer (who was a woman, poor girl) stayed far away until they had all put their pants on.
Once suspenders were mastered, Kyle passed out his gifts to his groomsmen. First Dan:
And so begins the biggest bromance of the century:
It says "Big Spoon" Kyle's says "Little Spoon"
Next was Keith:
Last minute getting ready:
Anyway, since guys are so much easier than girls, they had plenty of time to get portraits:
Daddy-O! Lookin' so handsome!!
Lastly, Kyle opened my gift to him:
I hadn't written the card until that morning, and I was so scatter-brained that I have no idea what I was writing, but I can tell you that he enjoyed his gift nonetheless. No need to go into too much detail, but here's a sneak peek:
ANYWAY, enough of that, sorry for getting so off track. If you've stuck around this far, thanks! Last thing the men did to get ready involved the grandfathers getting bouted:
So concludes my first recap!! How exciting!! I spent the weekend categorizing the photos, Ben did such a fantastic job, I'm so excited to show you everything our day was made of! Next up: the ladies get pretty!
