Oh and "first looks" are awesome. Why? Because they are cute, romantic and gives us lots of time for yummy portraits!
I was LOVING Heather's bouquet - just look at it! It even has feathers! Yes! These, and the rest of the flower details were designed by LilyPots of Lake Geneva.
After portraits, it was off to the ceremony & reception which were both held
Rain threatened this outdoor ceremony (because it loves to rain on the weekends this summer!), but completely held off for the duration of the day! Yay!
Heather's three sisters shared maid-of-honor duties and each gave a toast at the reception.... Jillian warned us that she was the crier of the bunch. She didn't disappoint! ;)
As I mentioned in Part One, Dan's family are missionaries in Bolivia and Dan spent a majority of his life there growing up. This groom's cake is a traditional Bolivian tradition for all the single-people at the wedding. Each grabs one of the strings and pulls them at the same time - whoever has a ring tied to their knot is the one to get married next! ... see that little flower girl in the corner? She pulled the ring out of this cake ;)
