Aurelio and I did in fact marry on Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2013. Groundhog Day is coincidentally one of my favorite movies.
We had a lovely little ceremony at Momo’s house with our immediate families.
Betsy was kind enough to take pictures so I will share some with you! Hopefully not too many.
Here are my new sisters:
The beautiful sister on the far left helped with my flowers, and the beautiful sister on the far right did my hair and helped with my makeup. The beautiful sister on the center left assisted the hairdresser. She probably did more things but I wasn’t aware of everything going on. Sorry Cailie!
These are the siblings I’ve always had, although no less exciting:
They were also very instrumental. The menfolk did a lot of moving and cleaning and Betsy and Emmy helped with planning and decorating etc.
Here’s one with all of our siblings:
The fun thing about having such a small party was being able to use the family silver and Mom’s mom’s china (supplemented with some of Mo’s mom’s).
Mom did such a good job on the cake! Beautiful and delish.
I have to post this lovely picture of my friend Amy even though I look like a total doofus:
Amy helped out a ton! It seems like she did more than she should have been allowed to do…I guess that’s true friendship.
And who doesn’t love that little door for the milk man in mo’s kitchen? Not Dominic! Not Dominic doesn’t!
This image proves that men are great at doing dishes:
Just kidding. They were showing off their socks, which is perfectly normal behavior.
A picture with Gerow parents:
And the Chayrez parents:
The only problem with backyard weddings is the creepy neighbors:
Here we are with Mo:
Here I am with Cuen and Steph:
Cuen and Steph got us an amazing room at the Hard Rock hotel downtown. Talk about snazzy!
Here’s one last shot of one of the tables:
And thank you for reading and looking, everyone. These are all unedited shots Betsy (or someone behind Betsy’s camera) took. Austin’s friend Brandon was also taking pictures, so when we get more maybe I’ll do another post, if there is enough interest. My next blog posts should involve our new apartment in Austin, Tx (sort of) and our new jobs and news and new stuff.
Until next time,
The Artist Formerly Known As Stephanie Gerow
Do you see how I did that?
