Hello, ladies. I hear some of you are wanting pictures of the wedding like right now and details. Sorry to keep you waiting. lol
I’ll do my best to give you a good overview of the wedding.
But first we must start at the beginning of the weekend with the tarts I made. No? That’s not what you’re wanting to see? Enough food pictures already? Okaaaay, if you insist.
I shall begin with the rehearsal dinner since that was so lovely.
The Hotel St. Michael was built in 1901. It faces the courthouse square that is so charming in downtown Prescott. Some of its more well-known guests includes Theodore Roosevelt, Doc Holiday and Billy the Kid.
I have never eaten at Hotel St. Michael’s bistro but if the food there is anything like what we had, I need to.
A banquet room was rented for the occasion.
The food was delicious. Roasted salsa, guacamole, black beans, rice, chicken & beef fajitas. The beef was a little tough but other than that the food was excellent. The centerpiece that you see here was brought all the way from Louisiana. And do you see those little square plates? I love them. Just sayin’.
The groom’s sister is standing on the left with her husband. On the far right is the guitarist that played for the wedding, along with his wife. Dave’s very, very good on the guitar and it sounded beautiful at the wedding.
The groom’s family made these cute signs to hang on the back of Emily & Aaron’s chairs.
I was so impressed that Aaron’s family also brought out a trailer filled with things for the rehearsal dinner. They made all the table centerpieces which were rustic and elegant.
Poor Seth sprained his ankle the night before playing walleyball. He was supposed to be an usher.
Instead, he became a keeper of the door at the little wedding chapel.
From left to right: Sarah (cousin of the bride), Christine (aunt of the bride), Alannah & Allison (sisters of the bride).

Here we are (on the right) sitting with Bro. Ricardo & Sis. Vallia. Bro. Ricardo performed the ceremony.
The 3 young men on the right were the ushers for the wedding.
A picture of 3 of my boys.
On the right you can see a little paper bag with Aaron & Emily’s name stamped on it. These were for the kids.
They had a candy station where they could go fill up their bags with goodies.
I thought it was really cute that they stamped “And they lived happily ever after” on the back of the bags.
It was a lovely dinner. Afterwards, everyone went to the actual rehearsal but I scurried home to finish dipping strawberries.
Part II to come soon… I hope.
