This year was a doozie. My mom and I cooked for what seemed like (and almost was) two days straight, and my hubby and I decided it's be the perfect time to re-do the dining room right before the big day. There was still painting going on Thursday morning. All in all, I'd say it was a success, we had lots of fun and lots of food! Sam was a fantastic photographer for the day, and there are many more pictures and recipes to come in the next few days!
