The Royal Wedding

 It is finally official! Catherine and William are officially married! Their new titles are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I woke up at 3:00 Friday morning to watch the live wedding coverage. Get ready for loads and loads of pictures, y'all! Here (above) is Catherine in her wonderful wedding dress. I squealed in delight as she gracefully walked out of the car. She looked absolutely stunning and absolutely breathtaking, I thought!
 Here are Catherine and her dad, Michael walking down the very long aisle in Westminster Abbey. I cry or tear up every time I see a father and daughter walking down the aisle. So special!
 William and Kate were soo precious during the ceremony. You can tell that they are absolutely head over heels for one another!

 William and Kate's kiss! There wasn't just one kiss--there were TWO kisses on the balcony! So cute and sweet, I thought!
 Look at this picture! Here is a sweet and cute bridesmaid who thought those planes were too loud! Sooo funny!

 I think William and Kate love children. I loved Kate's dress in this picture.
 Look at this wedding cake! I think it was absolutely beautiful. There were many flowers on the cake.
 Just Wed! Catherine and William drive away in the classic Aston Martin Volante.
 Here is Kate in her second wedding dress just for the reception. So pretty.

Here are a few more wedding highlights.
 Harry, two of the bridesmaids, and a page boy ride in a carriage.
 Pippa had a huge responsibility. She was practically responsible for all the children AND the beautiful bride!! Whew! Everyone looked fantastic, though!
 Catherine's mother looked soo classic.
 Oh, I am so glad Queen Elizabeth smiled! She always seems soo serious! HA!
 Beatrice and her crazy hat! Goodness. 
 I was sooooooo excited!
 We even got royal wedding cupcakes. Weren't they cute and pretty?

The wedding was everything I imagined it would be. I am a sucker for romance and have always loved Princess Diana and family. Sorry this was such a long post, but hope y'all enjoyed!!! I wish William and Kate a lifetime of love and happiness. :)

I liked the elegant simplicity of the dresses too! I wish them well and know Will must have longed for his mom to be there. She would have been so proud.
