The morning of the big day, I got up at 6 and got ready while Tyson, Steph and Jerad snored away.
Then, all the girls met in a hotel room and primped together.
It was extremely important to Chelsea that her Nana be included in her wedding. She is in a home for her Alzheimer's, and Chelsea had originally planned an early afternoon wedding under the impression her Nana would be able to attend. At the last moment, Nana was not allowed out of her home, so Chelsea (ever thoughtful problem solver), decided to take the WEDDING to the NANA, which meant we needed to be ready by 10am so the entire wedding party could make it to the home for the first ceremony to be preformed there by Austin, Chelsea's older brother.
When the party was over at Nana's we set off for a round of pre-ceremony pictures at a beautiful park in the Arizona center.
It started to drizzle a bit toward the end of our photo sesh, but we hardly noticed.
And then, all of a sudden, it was GO time.
