Rehearsal time!

I was all ready to get this thing started, but evidently, you have to PRACTICE first!?!?!? I did AWESOME during the rehearsal, but looking back, maybe I should have just done it once… The flower girl and I were not as into doing our jobs on the real day… Oh well, at least Mommy got pictures of us doing it right once!

Aunt Jen & Uncle Aaron had a special role as “godparents of the coins”, which is a wedding tradition in Aunt Kristie’s culture. They had to present the bride and groom with gold Mexican coins during the ceremony…
