|In a play on their last name, they gave away homemade granola in these little takeout containers. They also served as place cards. The groom's mom made all of the granola! It was delicious, too.|
My younger sister had been in China teaching English last year. My older sister has been living in Japan for three years. So, for all of us to even be together was a treat. And then to celebrate a wedding on top of it all?? Awesomeness!

I stood up in the wedding and Peachy got to walk in with me and then sit down by Mr. Cherry. I wasn't sure whether she would do it or not. We didn't put any pressure on her and she rocked it! Mr. Cherry said she had a smile on her face the entire way down the aisle.

As is the tradition in our family, my mom made the wedding gown. She also made 4 of the attendants' dresses, her dress, and the girls' dresses. She is a very talented seamstress and very good at time management. :)
|Cream was so excited to be in the pictures. When she would get up there, she would wave at everyone watching her and clap and clap!|
The wedding took place in the brand new chapel at the college that my whole family attended and that my father teaches at and my mother works at. So, not only was it a beautiful building, but it held lots of meaning. (Oh, that is also where my sister and her husband met.)

The ceremony itself was such a wonderful celebration of the love that the couples shares in the Lord. The music was beautiful, the words were awesome, and everyone in attendance was beaming from ear to ear.
In between the ceremony and the reception, the wedding party went to a local brewery to snap some pictures. The photographer was a friend of my sister's from high school. She did an awesome job. I wish I could post some of her pictures here. They are just so well done.
The reception was held at the same hall that Mr. Cherry and I used for our wedding reception, so that was fun for us to reminisce about where we were 7 years ago. Peachy danced the night away. She did more dancing than I did. We were able to get the girls down with a sitter and return to the reception.
|The happy couple!|
|This is the only picture of Mr. Cherry and I. Isn't it a winner? We look so in love. :)|
