My sister got married last week, and I have a new brother!
We’re excited about this. :)
The wedding was on June 13 at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church.
This is a beautiful church! Pope St. John Paul II visited it during World Youth Day in Denver in 1993.
The church was stunning……so here are pictures (especially for family members who couldn’t come, but really, for everyone, because we all need beauty!)
It’s a really gorgeous church, with a statue of the Sacred Heart, a St. Michael window in the choir loft, and last but not least, a really amazing priest! He gave a beautiful homily on how marriage is about joy and sorrow, how marriage really begins the time you have your first fight (basically) or have a bad/sad moment, and how marriage is about being selfless, instead of selfish, because you’re one now. You’re not two. It was appropriate he spoke about joy, because that’s my sister’s middle name! I wish I had a copy of the homily, it was so inspiring.
The reception was intimate, held at a local steakhouse. But there was still cake (well, cupcake) smashing….
And a first dance….
I was a bridesmaid, so I was busy throughout the day and didn’t have time to take a ton of pictures, but that’s what I have. :)
We stayed at The Stanley Hotel (AKA, where Stephen King got the inspiration for The Shining) and my room had a great view:
So, that’s all I have right now, in terms of photos, but it was a lovely, intimate wedding in a gorgeous place, and I’m so happy for my sister and my new brother in law! :)
