Meet the all-stars, the very first people I asked to be a part of our wedding party, Emily and Ryleigh. As pictured here in their princess outfits with fancy accessories, they have brought so much joy to the Barron household. Anne and I were bridesmaids in their Mom’s wedding (my cousin Catherine), and I just couldn’t have it any other way. Oddly enough, they look and act a lot like Anne and I did.(thank you facebook for this picture of Anne!) See the resemblance?
Well, I knew the decision was perfect when after meeting David, my mom got a funny call from my cousin. Apparently, one day, Ryleigh was at my Aunt’s house and from the other room, my Aunt could hear her talking to herself. “Heyyyyy, David. What time will you be here to pick me up for our date? Uhhh huhhhh… yeahhh… Okay, six sounds great.” My aunt walked in on her talking to David on her pretend phone. Also, apparently the new cool thing in their household is to “play wedding.” I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty proud to be a trend-setter.
