The BIG Event

Last night Craig popped "the question" to my sister Emily.

She said "YES!"

A little while later Craig pulled up in front of a party room downtown and Emily saw us all waving in the window.

I think she was just a little bit surprised!

Congratulations Emily and Craig!!!!!!!

We are all so happy and excited!

Even the children.

Craig planned the entire event and thought of so many lovely details, including this quote he purchased for Emily.

Christina was the mastermind behind pulling this party off. She made sure everything went perfect!

The room was so beautifully decorated with flowers, signs, lights, and pompom garlands.

I was responsible for the cupcakes: all gluten free!

These champagne cupcakes are AMAZING! You can find the recipe here. The chocolate cupcakes were also seriously delicious. I used this recipe for the cupcakes and then made a chocolate cream cheese buttercream for the icing. (I did not put a filling in the cupcakes.)

Aren't these cucumber sandwiches beautiful! Craig's mom brought those.

And Emily's soon-to-be sister-in-law provided these delectables.

The table was so pretty!

Christina made these scrumptious roast beef sandwiches.

The recipes will have to be shared someday......

There was champagne for celebrating.

And the room was filled with happy conversation for the whole evening.

The kids had fun with their sparkling juice.

Photos and candles added much to the festivity.

And there were toasts to the happy couple.

Mom could not be happier.

Well, neither could Craig or Emily.

Michael and JK are going to initiate Craig into the brotherhood.

There were phonecalls from friends far away. (oh, and a ring too!)

The children really enjoyed the evening.

We are all very excited and we are looking forward to the years ahead.

Congratulations Emily and Craig!!!! We love you!
