Annabeth. Ian, and I flew up to Pgh last friday. A. was very good on the planes, but then again this is her 4 time flying and she is only 16 months old! We arrived late fri night, and Sat had a rehearsal lunch ( even though we had not rehearsed yet), and then spent the day making bouquets, flower arrangements, cords for the handfasting, and ironing dresses. Ian was the MC/DJ so he worked on the music...all we had was a ipod shuffle (or maybe it was a nano).

Anyway the next day , Sunday was the wedding. My sister had a planner for the day, so we just dropped stuff off and waited till it was time for the wedding. We did rehearse at 1pm, then got ready for the wedding at 3. Ian looked a bit dismayed at the big closet full of DJ equipment, and all he had was this tiny shuffle to attach to it, but then,the photographer brought a laptop computer and another iPod for the music, so Ian was all set . My in-laws were able to watch A, and make sure she napped before the wedding, while the rest of us got ready.
The ceremony went great (they had 3 clergy involved!) . It was in the Pavillion at Avonworth park, the reception hall (Mayernik Center) being right next to it. The food was very good, and the only flaw was we didn't have alot of time for all the music Ian prepped (the reception was only about 4 hours, by the time we were done with dinner it only left about 1 hour for dancing.

Above you see me trying to get A to sit still for the wedding party photo... She was a part of the party but really only in theory...Ian had to walk her down the aisle, and since she couldn't stand for the photos we tried a small stool but she wanted to pick at the flowers in the bouquet.

So here is the rest of us.
