The Sunday before the wedding, my sisters and I went to Kaysha and Roger's duplex and helped with the decorations. That was fun, but I was really tired by the end of the day. ;)
|Kaysha and Felicity spray painted the flowers|
|The guys helped too :D|
Then, Friday was rehearsal, and me, my sister LaKaysha, and my cousin Emily wanted to go. We were kinda counting on Colten (Emily's brother) to bring us, so my mom dropped me and LaKaysha off at their house after lunch. That way we would be there when Colten got home from work and we wouldn't be as late as we would if he had to pick us up. Rehearsal was at six and we didn't get there till almost seven, but we still go to see them do it all once. :D Down in the basement, we started helping with all the last minute things, like flowers, cleaning up the Rehearsal dinner, putting the unused decorations away, and stuff like that.
|Getting ready to do it once more ;)|
Emily spent the night at our house that night, so we didn't get to bed till pretty late. But the I couldn't sleep! I was too excited for Kaysha, and nervous about serving, and was so overly tired, I was awake... if that's even possible ;) But I did sleep, some.;)The next morning, we got up early, Felicity left, and we began to get ready. The wedding was at four, but we had to get there at three-fifteen. But, because of the early start, we were all ready at twelve! So we got pretty bored. ;) We took pictures and tried our best to pass the time. Finally two-twenty came and I asked my dad if it was okay if we went even earlier than planned. He said to go for it, so we did. ;) The whole way down I was really nervous! The closer we got the more my stomach did flip-flops! :D I don't know why I was so nervous and excited. ;) Then we got there.
We went into the kitchen and asked what our job would be once we come down from the ceremony, and we were free to do what ever we wanted. Sort of. ;) Marita did the flowers, and it turned out that she was one Bottineau short, so we put flowers in Emily's hair so that she didn't feel left out. (I still have mine pinned to the curtain in my room) We took the bouquets into the nursery where the bridal was, and ended up being in there for awhile, holding the flowers, while they all did last minute touch up. It's been a long time since I've seen a bride before her wedding (I think I was five). Kaysha looked so nervous, and everyone was trying to stay calm for her. She was beautiful! :D Finally I had to hand off the bouquets I was holding to someone, and we left the nursery to find a seat. Kirsten came and sat with us when she got there.
The whole time we sat there I Had to tell myself to calm down, and not to cry. ;) I'm not sure why it was so sad to me that Kaysha was getting married, but it was. Thankfully No tears fell, and I didn't have to worry about serving them while crying. ;) When the family walked out, so did I. With LaKaysha and Emily behind me.
Then we served. I was shaking a lot at first, but then it was not only easy, but fun! :D But, I did dump ice on Calvin's plate... Oops! I was pretty embarrassed at first, but he said it was alright, and I believed him. ;)
Once the serving was done and they were married, I was so happy! I could hardly see straight I was so happy. ;) We didn't get to eat much because they were decorating the car and we wanted to be there, but that's okay with me. ;) Then we just had an amazing night! We didn't do much that was amazing, but everyone was so happy, so, therefore, it was amazing! :D :D
It was just all in all the most amazing weekend of my life! :)
Well, here are some pictures from it:
|The day we've been waiting for! :D|

So, I took pictures of our shoes...I was the only one who

Taking pictures of a picture can be hard;)

|I think Evelyn thought Kaysha was Cinderella ;)|
She kept hugging her and even gave her some flowers

The Beautiful Bride!!! Too bad Roger was moving, but I was kinda just snapping pictures, not really paying attention to what I was taking. ;)
(The flowers in Kaysha's hand are what Evelyn gave her)
Well, hope I didn't blab too much ;)
