Saturday July 25th was a truly momentous day as we celebrated the marriage of my younger (and only) sister, Callie Andrus, to the man of her dreams, Adam Wilhoit. They were married at a quiet spot overlooking the ocean in Anacortes, Washington (part of the San Juan islands). The heavens must have been smiling because you couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day. As you can imagine, Callie was a beautiful, blushing bride and Adam was dashing as always. (If you don't believe me, just check out the pictures.)
Brooklyn and Talia were cute as ever in their fairy-tale dresses. They were so excited to be flower girls--even if they did get somewhat lost and distracted going down the aisle. The guests ended up having to steer Talia most of the way, while Brooklyn turned around and started going back at one point! The real cheers go to my mother who sewed the flower girl dresses, all of the bridesmaid dresses, and even a matching dress for Zoe the pug.
While Washington may not really be on the way to many places, I was amazed to see how much family came to support Callie and Adam as they start their new life together. Much of my mother's family came from New York, as well as five of my father's siblings and their spouses. Callie and Adam, you sure are loved!
From the pictures, it's easy to see why we love them so much. Adam, any man who is willing to invite our two little munchkins to share in the wedding dancing is just the kind of guy we're delighted to have in the family.
While the happy couple is currently honeymooning in Costa Rica, we'll go ahead and send our congratulations to them both.
