Marianne & Tom: A Family Fete

I think children often get an unfair reputation as being bad wedding guests.  Yes, they can be noisy, sticky, smelly, and squirmy.  But kids can also add a beautiful perspective to the wedding day.  Their sweet innocence and honesty can make for some of the best, most memorable moments.  I was recently reminded of this fact on a beautiful Saturday morning this past September.

Marianne and Tom not only had the important title of "bride and groom" that day, but counted themselves lucky enough to be "mom and dad" as well.  They are parents to three of the sweetest kids I have ever met --- the kind of kids that make me think that maybe this parenting thing isn't so bad.  That morning, instead of sipping mimosas, Marianne was coloring and tying shoe laces.  Instead of talking about how their day was all about them, Marianne and Tom purposely made the day all about their family.

When their 3-year old twins came walking down the aisle (taking a few breaks to check out the scenery, squash a bug, and say hi to grandma), hearts melted.  When it came time for the vows, no one was phased when their gorgeous daughter excitedly jumped up and grabbed daddy's leg.  And during their brunch a few pancakes may have flown across the room.  It wasn't always flawless or smooth, but the day was absolutely perfect.

Below are a couple of my favorite family moments, captured perfectly by Pamela Scott Photography...
