More pictures to share

Hello everyone - I wanted to start off today by showing you some pictures of the conservatory we visited in Minneapolis/St. Paul on our first full day out there.  It and the zoo attached to it, are free to the public and we enjoyed a lovely tour of both. It was beastly hot with high humidity...that seems to be a pattern in our family...every time we visit botanical gardens and the like, we just about die from the heat!  I'll only share a few of the pictures I took, as I know you want me to get on with the wedding ones!

My nephew Jake

My gorilla man!

Okay - on with the wedding pictures - I only have the few I snapped so far.  Mr. Whimzie's brother was the photographer and he'll be getting his pictures to us soon.  Hope you enjoy these.  It was a beautiful day - mid 80s -appropriately enough...a big storm came through Friday night when we were at the rehearsal dinner, with lots of wind, rain, thunder & lightning...just for our weatherman groom!

Maria's little sister had the most beautiful red curly hair - she looked like an angel!

Still making my heart throb after all these years -lol

Our trip home was blessed with perfect weather...I took this last picture from the car while rolling along the highway in Illinois.
