Wedding in the Ozarks

May 9, 2012

A few weeks ago my little brother, Chris, got married. It’s hard for me as big sister to comprehend that he is old enough to get married (and harder still to comprehend that I am now 27! Where are my 20’s going??). Chris and Kim wanted to have an outdoor beach wedding, and they chose the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. This meant a mini vacation for our family to a new location, and I’d been looking forward to it for several months. It’s rare for our entire family to be able to get together, so we really cherish the times when we do! We rented a great condo for our family right on the lake. Check out our daily view!

For those who don’t know, Lake of the Ozarks looks like this:

Because of the crazy shape, there is abundant shoreline, making it a popular vacation spot and retirement destination. The first evening we arrived was soooo beautiful and warm–probably 85 degrees. We cooked a quick and easy dinner and ate on the porch in the sunshine.

The next day we did some hiking at the Lake of the Ozarks State Park. It was a bit chillier, but we still had a great time enjoying nature and the great views.

Here’s my mom stylin’ the blanket. 🙂 Like I said, it was chilly!

The sun came out again for the wedding the next day, and it was just beautiful!

We got all spiffed up for the occasion.

And had some fun goofing around after pictures but pre-wedding.

Then the main event! The bride was beautiful, the ceremony was sweet, and the setting was perfect.  Congrats Chris and Kim!

I think we were all wishing for one more day to be able to spend together hanging out at the lake, but alas, we had to get back to jobs and school. Fortunately we have more fun adventures to look forward to this summer! What a wonderful time to see family, celebrate together, and welcome a new member to the family!
