The Most Beautiful Bride and the Nicest Boy in Boise

Last week, my sister Cindy married Travis Worwood. She really was the most beautiful bride I have EVER seen and according to reliable sources, Travis is the "nicest boy in Boise."

When my dad was dancing with Cindy at their reception they had the following (paraphrased) conversation:Dad: "You know what the best part of this day has been, Cindy? Your smile."

Cindy: "I know. Scott (her dentist) did a great job on my teeth, didn't he?"

Dad: "I don't mean your teeth Cindy. I mean your smile. You can tell you are truly happy because of your smile."

I totally agree. Cindy is a beautiful girl to begin with, but that day Cindy radiated happiness and her countenance truly glowed.I have always loved being around new mothers with their brand new babies. It is so fun to remember how I used to feel when I had my first child and to remember the excitement and joy that motherhood brought me. It is the same way with newlyweds. It is such a great reminder of the joy and happiness that can and should come from marriage. It was nice to be shown a great example and have a special reminder of how I should feel about and treat this handsome man that I married nine years ago.......
I wish Cindy and Travis nothing but happiness and joy as they begin their life together. They absolutely deserve one another!

CHEERS to the Worwoods!

You've done well, Mom and Dad. You should be proud.

The reception was so gorgeous. My mom really knows how to throw a party and Cindy had really neat ideas.

It is always so fun to spend time with Kim and her family.
We miss you guys!!! sniff sniff.

Thank you so much for all coming. It meant the world to Cindy.

Lettin' loose on the dance floor. You should have seen Meg and Sarah. They were "raisin' the roof!" Too cute. And I'm sure I looked like the drunk lady. I always get a little carried away!

Oh that's right... I showed up a day late.

Good thing your sister and her new husband didn't make the same scheduling mistake, huh?

I agree. She is SUCH a beautiful bride. Her smile in the pictures is radiant. I can see why your dad said that to her.

I want to see footage of you lettin' loose on the dance floor!!!

I love how you said to your parents, "You've done well, Mom and Dad. Your should be proud." What a lovely thing to say.

You look great, Lisa-Marie. I like your dress and necklace ☺

i love seeing all of the pictures from the wedding. it was truly a magical day for trav and i. it was so surreal to me that i was getting married. and now that the wedding day is in the past, it also kind of seems surreal. i'm so grateful i have pictures to remind me of that incredible feeling! i want to do it ALL over again (with the same sweet husband of course)!

THANK YOU for all of your hard work that weekend!
