My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

the wedding

Amy and Hans's wedding yesterday was wonderful! They both even said so themselves, and theirs was the most important opinion. Here's a few pictures I managed to take.

The rehearsal on Friday night. (That's me and Rachel, waiting for things to begin. Behind Rachel is Hans, and the classy lady behind me is Heidi, Hans's mom.) After the rehearsal (which did eventually happen), then everybody headed over to Ben and Darcy's for Lucille's BBQ for dinner. It was tasty.

The day started with the bridesmaids breakfast (Anna (Hans's fabulous sister), Julie, Amy, Heidi, Rachel)

After Amy had her hair done, it was up to the house for make up and getting dressed. Amy and I both had our make up done by Justina, who happened to be the Sephora employee who did Amy's trial make up run a couple months ago. Amy liked what she did so much, she hired her for the actual wedding day. And she did a fabulous job! If only she could come to my house EVERY morning ....

Mom helped Amy into her dress, which required lots of lacing down the back of her dress.

Meanwhile, outside, the tables were being set for dinner. The centerpieces were all different flavored cakes, and the table numbers were placed on top. Each numbered sign had pictures of Amy and Hans at that age, which was really fun (i.e. At table 5 there were pictures of Amy and Hans at age 5.)

Our brother Jon taking pictures before the ceremony. He got some fantastic shots.

Amy's bouquet. Isn't it beautiful!? My mom bought all the flowers and then she had two friends help her arrange all the bouquets and the flowers for the day. They did a beautiful job.

The wedding cake and topper. Peacocks were a theme for the day. Each bridesmaid had peacock feathers in their hair, and there were peacock feathers in the boutaneers and some of the arrangements around the reception area. Unique and beautiful.

Amy and Hans cutting their cake. They were very decent to each other and kept to eating the cake as opposed to smearing the cake.

The newlyweds: Hans and Amy Stokke. They're spending a couple nights local and then leave for South Carolina on Tuesday for a week. Congratulations!!
