shotgun wedding

{the bride and her Papa}

It almost didn't happen, but Brother-in-Law got married on Saturday. Child Bride was rushed to the hospital Thursday and we all thought La Petite was trying to come early so she could attend the wedding too. But thankfully, La Petite was staying put, and Child Bride was told she could go home and get married. 

It was Le Petit Village's party of the year and all your favorite villagers were out and about...


 
{Honey Jr, Papa, and The Husband}

{Child Bride, her sister's Angel  & Wolf, Brother-in-Law, The Husband & Me}

We vamped...


We drank...


We shared a cuddle...

{The Husband & Papa's Wife}

We played with our hearts...

 

And hid to have a little post 'I Do' kiss...


And so you don't think I'm being cheeky about the whole 'shotgun wedding' thing... it really was...




See, told ya so.

  1. A literal "shotgun wedding," Ah-mazing! Congrats to Brother-in-Law and Child-Bride! What will you call her now that she's no longer the bride/bride-to-be? I do adore her current nickname, it always makes me smile!

  3. Well, there has to be a follow-up story about the shotguns... love this story and its photos, a slice of life from Le Petit Village!

    I hope that Fifty was not left out!

    Bises,

  4. I forbid any further comments from you about having to shed lbs! You look great. I think your extended French family is wonderful. Seems there's never a dull moment.

  5. Looks like a great time. Funny about the shot guns...looks a little bit like what I think weddings in Corsica must be like.

  9. I love weddings! I've never been to a French one. I keep telling FBF that all his friends need to start getting married so I can have this very important cultural experience under my belt!

  10. Ha ha! Were the shotguns some kind of tradition? Or was it actually incentive for Brother in Law to go through with it?

    And by the way, your shoes are freakin adorable!

  13. Biscuit - I think I'll still call her Child Bride ;-)

    Tabitha - A sense of humor and questionable sanity! It's a winning combo!

    Genie - As soon as I'm back to full steam, I'll write a follow up post...

    James - THANK YOU!

    Meredith - I'm passing your comment about Corsica to Papa, he'll be so proud!

    Honks8s - She's due in 3 0r 4 weeks. We've all placed bets. My money is on March 7th

    Kirsty - I could tell you that they weren't fired but then I'd be lying

    Lori - Tradition... I think...

    Aidan - hmmm... not sure on the nickname, I think I might stick with La Petite for a bit anyway x

  14. Guns aside, or rather included, this is one sweet wedding.

    And you, as ever, look fabulous.

  15. Congratulations to Child Bride and Brother-in-law on their nuptials! Maybe you should have included some type of disclaimer that no-one was harmed during the wedding and celebration.

  16. a) HONEY JR! Is this getting creepy? He's so attractive, and plus, the nickname "Honey Jr" doesn't hurt.
    b) Your dress is absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the top of it.
    c) Congratulations to the happy couple! :)

  17. It looked like a wonderful time.
    And I would be remiss in not mentioning the utter gorgeous-ness of your shoes.
    Perfection

  18. Is this why we are friends?
    I think so.
    The way you narrate your stories makes me want to be you when I grow up.

    You look beautiful in your pretty black dress, by the way.

  28. Nice pictures! You look fantastic! And why does it look so warm there? It's soooo cold in Boston. Although last Friday it was 62 but Sat the wind chill was below zero. Go figure. No England weather is really living up to its reputation.

  38. Salut! I just discovered your blog and I am ridiculously jealous of your new life in France (seeing it's something I dream of on almost a daily basis).

    Would love it if you stopped by my blog sometime.
