New blog look and Wedding photos

I have used one of Bloggers templates to change the look of my blog. When I saw this green one I was in love...but my banner doesn't quite match it, LOL. So will have to decide what to do about that.

I have been working on gathering some "blue" kits for my son's wedding layouts. He married a very sweet girl, Rayna, from Virginia and the wedding was June 12. We finally have a "daughter." Yeah!
So, we all gather down in Virginia for an outdoor wedding. Yeah, right, the Lord had other plans for us! About one hour before the ceremony was to begin, outside (with the reception to be outside too), a storm literally blew in. It took the guys about 10 minutes to bring in all the table decorations, table cloths, sound system, etc. This took several hours to set up mind you! 

Luckily we had a "house" to put everything and everyone into. We waited for about half an hour, watching the weather on a computer, then decided to move everything about half a mile down the road to the Fellowship Hall they had reserved (thank goodness!). So the wedding took place about 50 later than it was supposed to indoors.

Everyone looked beautiful, the girls in their different colored dresses with the guys to match. Rayna was a gorgeous bride. My oldest son look handsome (okay, all three of them, two were in the wedding party, the ones in the orange and yellow shirts).

Here are some layouts I have completed. Waiting for some more photos to come and then I will have lots and lots and lots to do. LOL

First a couple of engagement layouts...still have more of those photos to do too.  I used a kit called A Pocketful of Posies by Elemental Scraps for these layouts. The circular word art in the second layout is by Melonie.



A couple of the photos we got outside before the storm hit. Using the same kit A Pocketful of Posies. The beautiful bride and all her girls. Below are the flower girls. Harley, my youngest son's girlfriend, is trying to get them to smile in the one photo.



These are some photos the photographer took, got them off of the kids facebook account. Kit used Loved Ones by Jill DZine. The Husband and Wife word art is by SuzyQScraps.



The wedding party...beautiful colors...and the parents with the kids. Kit used Lucky You by Julie Bullock.



And two more for now...the kids, aren't they cute (but you should of seen the faces when they were told they had to walk arm-in-arm, LOL). Kit used Coy Mistress - Blue by Scrapping All the Way (from Misses BeeHaven, where I am QCing kits now).

Awesome photos and layouts. Looks like it was a wonderful wedding. Like the idea of the different colored bridesmaids dresses and the outdoor photos.
