I was lucky enough to do a third Schernikau wedding this weekend. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, that’s fine because it means a ton to me. It means that Mark, the dad of the bride, knows to yell “the closer the better!” when we are posing for family pictures. It means that I know the names of the adorable nieces and nephews at the wedding, and it means that I’m like that weird cousin that you only see at weddings but is also totally rooting for a glorious marriage and lots of babies from these two:) I knew the event would be lovely, but there were even a few surprises for this weird cousin… like breakfast for dinner! Or the best man totally playing up the super cheesy pick up line Alan used to get Kinsley’s attention, the flash mobs all night long, bridesmaids who bring their own genuine Gap props, a wedding dress that I want to go out and buy and wear everyday, and Garth. That’s the couples adorable fur baby who was invited to the first look. Both Alan and Kinsley were just as excited to see him as they were each other. He’s pretty great… If only there was another Schernikau wedding I could look forward to. Maybe I could find a fellow weird cousin to let me do their wedding. Enjoy the preview, you two!
