It was the most awkward kiss I've ever seen. She turned her head at the last minute so Jesse got her on the cheek. Poor guy.
Wedding rehearsal. I have no idea what she is holding.
The girls who came and spent the week together beforehand. Yup, I'm in that picture but won't say where! I believe you've discussed Natalie on here--that's her front row second from the right. Sweet but quiet. I don't think any of the other girls have any real presence online. And I don't want Crystal to guess who I am, if she reads this.
With all the money saving mom discussion I thought you'd like some pictures. I spent the week before Crystal's wedding with her and her family. I liked her older sister best. Crystal can be a bit of a snob, or at least come across that way. She was obsessed with her appearance, appearing "fat" in pictures, makeup, and clothes. Jesse picked out her clothes for her. I don't know how much I should say, but she wore her mom's wedding dress to save money. Very 80's. The wedding was at her family's church and the reception in a gym. The girls in the above picture did the decorating. Sometime during the reception Crystal tore her dress at the waist so Jesse spent the rest of the reception holding it together.
All in all, not very impressed.
Going WAY back, like ten years, Crystal published a newsletter for young ladies called "Polished Cornerstones." It was short, full of little articles on homemaking, courtship, virtues, etc. I still have my copies. sometime I'll scan one in.
