|The before shot. She was already beautifully glowing for the big day!|
|Action shot. Calm, cool, and collected. She was born to be a Clausen|
|B not only had 2 matrons of honor as shown here, but 4 other bridesmaids, and 6 honorary bridesmaids who wore black. She is just too popular.|
|The was the awesome backdrop put together by Brooke and her dad I'm assuming (mr. crafty) for the alter piece!|
|The 1001 cranes turned out amazing!|
I think this Japanese tradition is worth the paper cuts!
|Cranes and twinkle lights as far as the eye could see!|
(My folded cranes are the funny looking ones!)
|They had a cookie bar- this is why we are friends!|
I was asked to help bake, so I made the "Happily Espresso After" chocolate chip cookies as pictures here. Did you expect anything else. They were one of the first ones to go (I'm just sayin)
|I am not going to mention how many were taste-tested by the Smith family.|
|The first batch came out a little crunchier than I would have liked, so the new Mrs. Clausen taught me a trick- stick some bread in a bag with the cookies, and voila! Moist-city.|
|Brooke's dress was gorgeous, and her mom's veil looked beautiful with it!|
|I love watching that first dance!|
|Thanks for letting me share in your day B!! Love you!|
|Cheers to the new couple! |
May God bless you and keep you, all the days of your life!
Enjoy the most amazing journey ever!!!
