california: day 3 (the wedding)

 On Saturday, September 10 (9/10/11), my date (aka Becca) & I got all dressed up for Kellie & Steve's wedding!

 They got married in the church where Kellie works & the Barrett family has been attending for years.

 The rings.

The wedding party all blew on noise makers when they kissed.  :)

 Kellie planned a bird theme for the wedding & there were lots of bird related decorations all over.  It was super cute!

 The Hickman family (our hosts for the weekend)
Uncle Keith, Aunt Carol, Wyatt, Natasha, & Devan (Natasha's boyfriend)

 The Hecht family (missing Erik)

 Cute bird nest & jordan almond favors.

 The reception was at a newly built Armenian cultural center & the food was very tasty!

 Pretty light fixture

 The cake & some birds.

The grand entrance!
When Kellie & Steve were announced, they were instantly surrounded by family & friends & celebrated in such a neat way.  I really loved it!

 Another Armenian tradition was for Kellie to break a plate by stomping on it.

 The toast

 Table 19
The Hechts, Hickmans & Ruddicks.

 Our table
Katrina, Becca & the Neals

 Melissa & Shaheen

 Each table had a special fact that correlated with its number.  Our table (18) was the day in December 2010 that Steve proposed to Kellie.

 Sweet Father/Daughter dance.

 Elle with Lincoln, who was playing with Hannah's hair.  He's got a thing for hair.  :)

 Elle caught the bouquet!  Aunt Robin kind of looks like she's scolding her.  :P

 The garter toss

 Cute cousins.  :P

More cute cousins!
Becca, Kellie & Katrina

One last photo of cute baby Dominic, in his cute baby tuxedo.  :)

It was a beautiful wedding & everything was so meaningful & thoughtful.  Kellie did a lovely job planning an amazing event & we were so thankful to be a part of their special day!  :)
