Wyndham...as the Flower Girl~















This is just a sampling of the pictures I took at the wedding on Saturday. What a special and memorable day that was. In true Ferlaak family wedding style, the weather was a major factor, and was responsible for power outages and added a bit of stress to the day. But by mid-morning, things were going smoothly and Wyndham was in the beauty shop hair getting her curls done. She sat so nicely and watched part of Madagascar movie during the process. I recommend Kid's Hair in Woodbury to any parents that dread taking their kids for a new hairdo. The glitter spray that Wyndham had spritzed in her hair was the perfect touch. =)
As soon as she slipped into the dress and got her shoes and flowers, Wyndham just seemed to know that she was up to something pretty special. She pranced around and smiled almost nonstop the whole day. She definitely was enjoying everything about being a flower girl. The heat and humidity were the only things that added a little stress to the afternoon and evening. It was 90's and sticky outside....the wedding ceremony was outdoors on the golf course. Thankfully the airconditioning was going strong just inside the clubhouse.
These pictures sort of speak for themselves. Click on any one of them to see it enlarged...to see the smiles even brighter. =) It was a happy day. It was a fun day. It was amazing to see Wyndham hold up so well and to enjoy herself in such a busy environment. We could hardly tear her or Ava off the dance floor- even at 11:00 at night! They just didn't want the fun to end. The sugar from the cake and soda pop they had helped to keep them going, I think.
I have to admit I had some concerns going into the day. I wondered how Wyndham would do. I shouldn't have lost a moment's sleep. She held up like a pro. I only wished Teagan could have been physically there with us too. It would have made it one of the most perfect days ever.

Jody,
My first thought, when I saw the pics of Wyndham, was "she is such a little princess" !
(I see someone else also labeled her the same !)
The pics are adorable. She is beautiful. I especially love the pictures of her looking at herself in the mirror & the one of her & Chip. She looks so excited !
I know you all are counting your blessings. The day had to be a huge reminder of how great our God is.
Love to you all.
Jackie Carl

Welcome back to W-MI! I still have a little package with your name on it, but need to get to the post office....do you know what I mean? Sometimes the simplest tasks seem to be the most difficult, like getting a few blocks to mail a package. Wyndham is just stunning.....I love children at weddings, especially on the dance floor! She just exudes joy. Hope transitioning back into the "Home routine" goes OK....that can be the hardest part of vacation for us! :)

Blessings,
Nicole

You can see the pride in her eyes. Everyone sure loves your little girl.
I know the feeling of sleepless nights worrying if our "special" kido's can hold up under a long and sometimes stressful day. They sure show us what it takes. I love that she partied all night long.

Wyndham looks absolutely beautiful in all her finery -- but then again, she always looks beautiful! There is just something about her that shows in the photos you post -- a sparkle or something, that just makes me smile whenever there's a photo shared. May sound silly since I've never met her in real life, but it's true! What an inspriation she is!

Cynthia said...

These pictures are so lovely! Wyndham must have stolen the show!
