From the bride, Katie:
It started pouring down rain about two hours before the ceremony, but the minute I walked out to see my dad, the clouds broke and it turned out to be a gorgeous evening. As bagpipes played, we walked down the grass aisle full of family and friends. We stood along the San Juan River under an arbor my Aunt made. My cousin sang a beautiful song and my brother read a family prayer that was one of my grandmother’s favorites. We had a small and quaint reception. People danced from the minute we walked in until 12:30 in the morning. Bill and I couldn’t have felt more loved with all of the wonderful friends and family we had around us! We had the best day of our lives!
There was something magical about the sound of bagpipes playing Highland Cathedral; it literally hit me in the soul.
My cousin brought pashminas (in our wedding colors) from Cambodia for all the women to wear at the wedding. They were a welcome gift on the chilly evening.
