Here comes the bride...
The wedding was beautiful, the day was beautiful, the bride was beautiful.
Justin and Ashley (Nana's girl)
Ashley and Nicole (Nana's little girl) hiding under Ashley's gown.
After the bride and groom danced, it was Papa Bill's turn. Ashley chose a song that they used to dance to when she was four years old, Little Bitty Pretty One...and you should have seen them spin and fast dance to that 1950's hit. I cried remembering how he used to spin her and make her giggle when she was little girl. It really was a night of old memories and a time for creating new ones.
