I have never seen my sister so happy, literally glowing. not only did my big sis say “I do” to one amazing man, at a beautifully intimate courthouse ceremony, they’re welcoming a little boy in september, yup! thats right, I’m finally going to be a “real” auntie.
i loved the idea they had for the gender reveal – cake cutting during their small celebratory reception- in our parents backyard. it was perfect.
huge thanks to our parents who put this beautiful reception together. my mama (platypus perspective) is one artistically gifted woman and made my sister’s vision come to life. and another big thanks to matt (mttwllms.com) for helping me capture their perfect day and get me in a couple family photos and even let me enjoy a glass of vino.
dont worry, i never forget how important family portraits are, sometimes, due to the story being told in my posts, they dont make the blog, so here are a few of our family …
