My brother's wedding was Saturday. It turned out to be a gorgeous fall day that was enhanced by the fact that the wedding and reception were out near the Appalachian mountains.
Elijah put on quite a show as the ring bearer. During the first practice of the rehearsal, he walked faithfully down the aisle while staring at the ground the entire time. My mom told him that the next time he should try to look up. So for the second round of practice, he stared at the ceiling the entire time. We had a good laugh and instructed him to just look at Josiah while walking down during the wedding. The next day during the real deal, he walked down the aisle looking straight at Josiah and sticking his tongue out the entire time! The whole place was laughing, and my brother later told me that he was so grateful for a good laugh to calm his nerves.

The goofy crew:

The groom and best man, A.K.A. my baby brothers:

Matt, Christine, and baby:

My handsome parents:

I'll post some pics of my other two kiddos in a few days.
So we officially have another Mrs. Helms in family, and we couldn't be more happy with the girl behind the name!


  1. Yay! I've been waiting for these. So glad you had such beautiful weather for the special day! Elijah is adorable, and I think it's neat that (despite being the the "middle child") he got some time in the limelight.

  2. i love the pics! looks like it was a wonderful day!
