Botanical Gardens Wedding

My cousin Todd got married this weekend at the Botanical Gardens in Peoria, IL! It was a very small wedding, just family, so I was able to get some great pictures! We are very excited about welcoming Jill in to our family! She is a great girl!
I know it looks like they are posing for this pic...but honestly...this is "you may kiss the bride" moment! I caught it at the PERFECT time!
I thought this was a "sweet" moment of her looking up at him during the ceremony.
Of course, we couldn't pass up the beautiful scenery, and had to use it as a photo opt for the P man! Isn't he looking spiffy in his little sport jacket?
I couldn't get him to stand still for very long. They had a path through all the greenery that went in a big circle and all he wanted us to do was chase him.
"Come on Ma, GET ME!"
Look at me, testing out my photoshop skills! I will have to post the before and after of this photo for you to get the full effect, but I spent the majority of my day going through photoshop tutorials on Becoming Mom's site! If your like me, and have owned photoshop for some time now, but have no idea how to use it...then you will find her tutorials VERY HELPFUL!

There was one thing missing at the wedding...my Gpa Kenny...who was put in the hospital Friday right before we arrived. We are all hoping and praying that he will recover, but we know the reality of cancer...and our hope that we had 11 months ago is slowly coming to a crushing hault. Suddenly, the cancer that we thought he was beating...is now beating him. Please keep my family in your prayers.
