Wedding pics of my niece!  
Woo Hoo! My niece (my sister's youngest daughter) was married in November in Arizona and she just gave me the link to the photos. Sadly, I couldn't make it to the wedding at the time. Here are some of the pics that I thought were cool.

Seriously, this is one of the most colorfully eclectic weddings I've seen in a long time and Charlene was just gorgeous!

Also of note. I included pics of her shoes - A SHOE ALERT FOR firehead30!!!!!!

Anywho, here's the first one:


My niece, Charlene!


Here she is with her new hubby, Jesse right after the nups.


My sister, Linda and her hubby, Pat, the proud parents of the bride.


This is so cute! Daddy's Dance!


The cake...cuz it looks really amazing!


Here are the shoes she wore. I love these things. I think she did this cuz I told her the story of how my best friends wore bright red sequined shoes at her wedding.



And I swear the shoes are making their way through the crowd. They're the hit of the party!




The nuptials themselves. This took place in Arizona in November. It's so beautiful there at that time of year.


My other sister, Janie and her hubby Garry.


The grandmas of the bride. My mom is the one in blue.



Here's Charlene and my other niece, Lori, getting ready. I know I did this backwards! LOL! I love these, I don't know why...


And I just dig this one. :)

And now, for a blast from the past...this is me and my sisters in 1975! I'm....uh...the one on the far right and I'm 12 here. My but we've changed. LOL!


You can totally bypass this whole update. I just thought the pics were cool and now you know the people I came from. :)

Also, I don't know what's up but I can't sleep so I'm just here doing this. I should really go to bed...

Awww! Thank you Steph! *smooches*

I felt like such a geek!

And yes on the shoes!!!!! I love those things.

These are some of the best wedding photos of I've ever seen. There were 38 pages of pics. Whew!

I love looking at photos so thanks for posting. The shoes look amazing and that cake is incredible.

Why you're welcome. It's fun posting them too! :)

Isn't that cake the most amazing thing you've ever seen! It's this rich chocolate inside. Yummmm....

And LOL on the shoes! My family...*shakes head*

Oh, shoe porn! I want them!

Gorgeous pics. Your niece was a very beautiful bride and the setting for the ceremony was amazing!

The blast from the past pic was very cute.
Mariaslave_o_spike on March 21st, 2008 07:13 am (UTC)
I know!!!! I'm not a show person, but these are fan-fucking-tastic!!!!

And they were such a hit at the reception. LOL!

...only in my family...

The backdrop is gorgeous. I'll tell you - summer in Arizona is unbearable but in the fall (late fall)? Beautiful!

She was gorgeous! There were 38 pages of pics of the wedding. The first 7 showed her going to the salon for her hair and then a make-up specialist for their...you know...make-up.

Thank you. I love that pic. Janie looks a bit stoned, Linda looks like she knows it all and I'm such a geek. Ah, Los Angeles in 1975...

I'm a complete shoe slut. My idea of heaven would be able to afford to buy a pair of Jimmy Choo's or Manolo Blahnik's. *g*

I can imagine that summer would be rather uncomfortable in Arizona.

I remember when we were spending one particular summer at my sister's when I was 18. I walked outside the door at 10:00 am and thought I was literally being roasted alive over some huge fire pit.

People just didn't go out early in the morning until the sun moved in the sky! LOL!

But then, you have some pretty hot spots there 'down under.' (Do you hate when people call it 'down under?')
liriel1810 on March 21st, 2008 10:03 pm (UTC)
Oh bleh! That's far too hot!

(Do you hate when people call it 'down under?')

Nope, not at all... beats what I call it (the ass-end of the world). *g*

Yeah, there's a few hot places here, but Sydney's not usually too bad at all and anyone with a lick of sense wouldn't go to the hot places in summer!

I SO totally love the shoes !! I wish I had some like that (definitly gonna find this style for spring *note to myself: find room to stock more shoes*).With the sweater you were wearing at your wedding (yes the one so totally Chloe !!!) and NOTHING else (yes i isnsit on that point no pants no skirt) it would definitly be a hit look.
Damn, i should be sending files of t-shirts right and here I am dreaming about new clothes and shoes !! LOL
Nice pics, the wedding seemed very nice and the outside sceanry is just amazing.I love the last pic of you and your sisters.So Charlie's angels ! eh eh...Aida
Maria: Orlandoslave_o_spike on March 21st, 2008 01:22 pm (UTC)
LOL! The sweater and shoes and nothing else? LOL!

Seriously, I wish I still had that sweater. I would probably give it to Megan but if she didn't want it, I'd send it to you!

According to my family, it was a very nice wedding. The perfect weather, beautiful local.

Days like that just don't happen all the time.

And me and my sisters Charlie's Angels?!?! LOL! I totally did not see that the first time. :) But you're right - except not with the hotness!
Doriantdorian on March 21st, 2008 01:38 pm (UTC)
Of course nothing else ! Sometimes when i come to work my assistant look at me with wide eyes ( and after all these years u would think she is used to my crazy looks !)and says "Aïda...where is the rest of your outfit ? Are you aware you're ONLY wearing a top ?"
I love this girl !!LOL
Put the sweater on ebay you'llmake some money !!

Very cool pics, you have a beautiful family.

My mom loved the cake, hehehe.

Thank you! I must've been adopted! :)

I love the cake too! LOL! Makes my mouth water.

Great photos. And the scenery at the wedding was lovely.

Kudos to the bride for wearing such sexy and non-traditional shoes. Yeah, Fire will go crazy when she sees them!

You are so brave to post a picture from the pre-teen years. I hopefully have burned all of mine! No one will ever be subjected to that.
Maria: Frodo doesn't live here anymoreslave_o_spike on March 23rd, 2008 09:00 pm (UTC)
It was just gorgeous there! I love Arizona in November. :)

I haven't heard from Fire lately - she must be busy!

I hate the way I looked in my pre-teen years. I was such a geek. ;P

So I don't know how lucky I am. :0

Someone made the comment about Charlie's Angels! LOL! (Re the pic of me and my sisters).

Charlene is very pretty. She looked great that day and I'm really so happy she had the day she always wanted. :)
