The much awaited wedding pics! Were so happy for aunt Cheryl that God brought such a neat guy into her life. It was also really nice to have the ENTIRE family together all weekend. It's a rare occasion that we get everyone together at a family get together anymore, so it was fun to all be together.
Before we left we had some drama because Kate was wearing a cream dress and only had a black bra with her. We found her a white one but then her bra hung out of her dress a little bit and the debate was whether she should put a tank underneath it. At the Huber household, we can take the simplest of situations and turn it into a full family affair! :-)
The lookout spot before the wedding.
Aedan wasn't feeling photogenic
The flowers were beautiful. They looked like they had just been cut that morning!
The actual garden
Before the ceremony
The botanical garden overlooked the golf course and the ocean. My dad was looking longingly at it!
I was going for the cool artsy photography shot here. Yeah, I don't really have an eye for it but I try!
There were drinks available before the wedding started. However it was a little bit of a surprise when the tea was unsweetened and what you thought was lemonade was grapefruit juice especially when you(me) mixed the two together thinking you were making an Arnold Palmer. Note to self, tea and grapefruit juice is not a good combo!
Sophie made her rounds to every single person at the wedding. She would sit on your lap for about 10 seconds before she wanted someone new.
Sunglasses were a must for this wedding or botox treatments afterward!
Next time I'll have to take the picture from a different angle so not everyone is looking into the sun!
That would be Brit and a lot of Connie's head
Reid and Graham walked Cheryl down the aisle.
My dad's friend Dudley had the wedding ceremony. Ironically, he knows and is friends with Mike Baker and Gary York from Eastview. They go to mega church conferences together! :-)
More of the ceremony
The presenting of roses to the parents
Awww! A little PDA during the ceremony
Again more ceremony. Almost the same picture as up above, but this one you can't see Dudley's face!
Close up of the flowers
Um.....this picture is a little awkward based on hand placement.
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Rick Nichols
Just some palm trees
The St. Regis Hotel where we saw Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider and Ben Stiller(well some of us saw them). Adam Sandler was using the alias Bobby Bouchet from Waterboy!
There's Kate again with her signature pose.
I just switched spots with Katie. I wish someone had told me that my necklace was crooked in like EVERY picture!
Hard to believe she has two already! You would think when you make such cute babies you wouldn't be done at 2!
Sophie was totally intrigued by these umbrella poles. They kept her company the whole time we waited for the reception to start.
Kellen and Gary. Kellen's boss was nice enough to let him off for a whole day to be able to come down for his aunt's wedding, even though he had actually been given the whole weekend off originally!
Dad and Dudley. I thought that Dudley was like 70, white haired and shorter than my dad. Obviously I was wrong on all three!
Aedan doing a little jig
Kate always says what you might keep to yourself. She told Cheryl that her boobs looked great! I think she took it as a compliment!
With about ten different cameras going off, it was a little challenging to get everyone looking in the same direction or in Grandma's case, to not have their mouths hanging open! :-)
Avery slightly resembles her daddy! :-)
Tianne and Grandma Tillie
So Dudley asked me about work. Big mistake! If you look closely, he looks bored! However, my dad seems to be having a good time!
We had to wait a long time before the reception started. Hilary had apparently had enough! They did get to see the oldest kid from the show Home Improvement. He now has brown hair, is fatter and I can't remember his name so he's not that much of a celebrity but it was a least a small brush with fame. Later they ran into Adam Sandler walking his dog, so that was everyone's highlight of the evening!
At the reception, Dudley was saying that we may all be back together in California someday for Sophie's wedding. About that time she popped between Brent and Cheryl and yells "HI"! It was funny timing!
The centerpiece. Cheryl's head is behind that vase. It was that big!
Brit's toast made us all cry! She started out by telling us that her and her mom went dress shopping and how Cheryl had tried on multiple dresses. The first one just didn't work. The saleswoman loved it but there was just something about it that didn't look right. Then she tried on the second dress and it fit perfectly. It complemented her in every area. She tied it all together by saying, the same is true in life. The first one didn't work and the second one is the perfect match, complementing Cheryl in every way! That's when we all lost it!
Caught in the act or caught off guard?
Sophie likes to clean out bags, so she handed everything to Aedan one by one that was in his backpack.
The cutting of the cake. I think the photographer was a little annoyed that I was trying to get pictures from the same angles he was. Like he was getting paid or something!
Even the dessert had little touches added to it. I just feel sorry for the person that had to draw on each one of these! :-)
I was trying to get one of those artistic pictures where there's a closeup of the bouquet and the person in the background, but Whit's expression kind of ruins the moment. She wasn't following my thought process!
I thought the flowers were pretty and worth taking pictures with. Whit thought I was dumb.
The flowers were pretty and apparently Kate thought they were tasty as well!
Two more years till you're legal Kate!
So we made the floral arrangements into lei's. We had a LOT of time on our hands! It took forever to get a box for the top of the cake.
Whit got the "final rose" and she accepted
Kate and Katie or as Kate calls her "Kitty"
Whit, why did you lose about a foot in height?
Everytime I look at this picture I think Whit looks like Popeye! And that would be a tongs in Kate's hands trying to clasp Whit's boob! Oh and why does my right arm here look like it's about the same size as the rest of my body?!
Go big or go home I always say!
Does she look hot for 54 or what?! :-)
So my mom looked at this picture and said, "so none of you guys really look like me, you know it?" Mother dear, you're just now noticing that?! :-) We kind of look like the Hubers! :-)
Brittany got to meet Rob Schneider earlier in the day. She must still be a little star struck!
The table from Whit's end. I was on the opposite end.
The bride and groom. My dad asked Rick if he was ready for all of us to leave at about 9pm. Rick jokingly said, actually I was ready for that about two hours ago!
