Introducing... Mr. & Mrs. Jeffrey Hildenbrand!

Friday night Jason and I got all dressed up and went down to the Monterey Plaza Hotel for Jason's sister's wedding!! The wedding was beautiful, but Jenny topped it all, being one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen. Her dress was breathtaking and she was just glowing. 
My favorite part of the whole ceremony was watching the look on Jeff's face when he watched her come down the stair way and then seeing his expressions while he stood there, saying his vows to her. Those wedding moments are priceless. 

We had a great time seeing old friends and lots of family members we haven't seen in a long time. 


I was doing my best not to get in the way of their photographers, 
so I took this shot when I had an open window. 
I wanted to capture her full gown in pictures.

Me, Jason and Grandma Elsie 

This beautiful creation is how our butter was served! 
I thought it was the neatest thing and had to get a picture. 
I had a hard time cutting into it, because it looked so pretty... 
and I imagine it takes a lot of work to get it looking that way! 

~ Jeff thanks everyone for coming ~


Andrew, Kirsten & Meredith 
- I used to baby sit all 3 of these young adults. 
Which means I must be old.

Jeff, with his mom, Lynn. 


Getting ready to sing a song he wrote for Jenny, taken from Song of Solomon. 

I think she liked it :-) 


Father of the Bride - speech. 

Jenny played a song in honor of her parents - 
the song they danced to at their wedding, 34 years ago. 
Jason wanted to capture this picture since his parents are in one corner 
and the newlyweds are in the other. 

and then the crazy dance party got underway! 
If you know my in-laws at all, you know there was definitely amazing music, 
with lots of dancing :) I like watching the much older couples tear up the dance floor. 

us, with Jason's parents. 

could you ask for a more beautiful view? 

Congrats Jeff & Jenny!!

oh, I'm glad you were able to see these, Cindy!
Its amazing seeing the "kids" getting all grown up. I think they get tired of me saying "I used to change your diapers!"
can't imagine why it would bother them.... ;-)
