Me and my Sis

No bird blog entries for me today, so I thought I would share some pictures of my sisters wedding this past September in York, Maine. My sister and her husband are coming home tomorrow for the week and I can't wait as I have not seen them since last December.

They live in Washington DC which means I only see them about twice a year. They will be headed to Maine next week and sadly I can't join them as I am always up to my ears in deadlines at work the first week of every month.

A picture of my sister and my mom.

And my favorite picture of the two of them together taken immediately after the ceremony.

Take care all and for those of you in New England, enjoy the sun. Just make sure it doesn't blind you!! ;o)

Sun? What sun?

Beautiful wedding photos! I hope you both enjoy the visit. Maybe at some point it will actually stop raining enough for them to have a nice vacation.

Nice job switching it up Kim!!

Very nice photos Kallen. You have a good looking family.

FWIIW, it is raining again here this morning.
But the forecast for Saturday looks great.

Nice to see a personal post like this, Kim. I really like the last photo of the happy couple, too. Happy Thursday!

Wow. An impressive set of wedding photographs. You sisters could never deny the other. You look like twins, almost.

Rene said...

You, your sis and your mom do look so much alike. All the photos are nice, but you and your sister seem like you're so close in that first photo. It's sweet.

Lovely to see the wedding shots, too, and your newly expanded family! That last one is wonderful!

Hi Kim, You look fabulous!!!! Love the photo of you and your sister. Are those other sisters in the group picture--or friends?

I enjoy seeing wedding photos. Looks like your sister has a 'keeper' for her hubby. I know you miss her, and will be glad when they come for a visit this week.

Have a great week.

Thanks all. All of these pictures shown here were taken by a professional photographer. It wasn't until after I got serious about photography in February that I was impressed over how well they came out. The clarity of the pictures, the correct lighting, etc.

Betsy, I only have one sister and she is three years younger than I am. The woman to the left of me Is Venus (Primus, my sisters husbands sister), the person to the right of me is my cousin Kelly and the person to the right of her is Alexis, my sisters best friend.

It was quite the wedding due to the fact that our family is lilly white and the husabands family is black obviously. It's amazing how many cultural differences there are between the two races even to this day. For instance, they had no problems getting up on the dance floor and dancing, while it took a lot of alcohol to get the white folk out there to join them. HA.

This was the first time I had met his family as they live all over the place. In fact, Primus's cousin is Ladanian Thomlinson from the Chargers who couldn't come because football season had just begun in earnest (how cool is that!). The whole family is awesome and am glad to have a new extended family.

Oh, and thanks for the compliment that I look like my mom. I am the only one in my family that resembles my fathers side of the family (in fact, I am the spitting image of my deceased father) so it is interesting to hear people say they see a resemlence and yes I do think it's a compliment because I think my mother is beautiful both on the inside and outside!
