Rachel is my older sister. She’s three years older than me, and I don’t think any of us thought she’d be the first of the four of us kids to get married. Funny how things change when you meet the right guy… And Ed is exactly that. I think we all knew where things were headed within a few months of their first meeting, even though she lived in Harrisburg, PA, and he lived down in Florida. I at least knew the one night during some summer or winter break when I was visiting home. We had been out at the bars drinking, and were crashing in the same room when we got back to my parents’ house. Rachel called Ed and proceeded to talk to him on the phone for over an hour. I was attempting to sleep the whole time, but when I teased Rachel about it the next morning, she said, “No, look at my phone, I was only on it for 15 minutes!” I then showed her my phone, which she had used when hers ran out of battery, and which had logged over 45 minutes on that phone call 🙂
Welcome to the family, Ed. We’re crazy, but you already knew that!
Here are some more getting ready photos from the big day. Once the hired photographers showed up, I forced myself to put the camera away for the remainder of the day and just enjoyed it!
