Hello Mary Lou...Good Bye Heart

On Saturday, August 6, 2011 my brother Matt married his Mary Lou. We couldn't be happier to welcome her to the family!
What else do you do when you are wearing pretty flower girl dresses?
The wedding took place at St Lawrence Church in Redondo Beach. There were six flower girls, and a slew of bridesmaid's and groomsmen. Matt's best man was our brother Mike. Mary Lou's maid of honor was her sister Annie.

As you can tell, this photographer was more focused on the flower girls
than those nicely dressed adults behind them. 
In addition to a new Aunt the kids are excited about their new cousin Jimmy
who joins the crowd in yet another one of those
 "get the kids together for a picture" pictures. 

The reception took place in San Pedro where we dined on a great meal (seriously...great wedding food!) and danced till the stars came out.

Then, the band began to play. Matt's band is called "The Daily Routine" and they played many of their originals along with some specially chosen songs, just for this occasion.

Matt sang "Hello Mary Lou, Goodbye heart" to his bride. 

Everyone danced....

Me and my D...that boy can spin a girl!!

...and had lots of fun...

Apparently, Shiny was found in someone's beer and rescued by a curious flower girl.    
We left with sleepy happy kids and the party went on even later.
It was a happy day all around!
