However, being in a wedding with a baby is a WHOLE other ball-game. My dress was not conducive to nursing, Natalie didn't get a great nap in during the day, all she wanted to do when I held her was pull out my earrings or suck on my hair which had about 10 pounds of hairspray in it. Melissa was a fantastic Maid-of-Honor for me in my wedding, but I really feel like I wasn't even remotely the type of Matron-of-Honor that I wanted to be for my sister. Thank goodness for her friend, Karen, who helped out tremendously with Natalie, used my camera to take some great pictures when my hands were full, and picked up my slack in a lot of areas.

One of the coolest aspects of the wedding was the 1 hour horse-drawn carriage ride we took from my parent's house to the venue. It was such a serene drive, and really calmed us all down from the craziness of getting ready all day.
And the festivities begin!! More tomorrow!
