Our new furry addition to the family!!

I'd like to present our sweet little puppy, Diesel! :) He's a pure bred German Shepherd, whose 6 weeks old. I think he's adorable! :D We're going to wait till we move into our new house in October to take him home because there's just not alot of room at the aparment for a little dog to be running around. :P Can't wait to take him home :)

Wedding Photos Part 2 :)

Since my laptop is taking forever to load pictures...here's just a couple of pictures from our wedding party. :)

The whole wedding party - with the little ones <3

I love my husband <3

Our wedding was the first time since my Opa and Oma both passed away, that the entire Pikkert family could be together. It was really special to have everyone together. <3

Handsome groomsmen and my beautiful ladies :)

July 12, 2011: Mr. & Mrs. Richard VanManen!

I haven't picked up our official wedding photos yet, but I do have a few from some friends that I'll share for now until I get them all!
Married life is wonderful..isn't that what every bride says after a ten day long honeymoon, with a husband who cooks, and did all our laundry when we got back? :D
I can honestly say, my husband (I love the sound of that!) is an amazing man, and I love him like crazy!

Our wedding day was beautiful. It was full of sunshine and laughs and happy tears. (from Rich, my lovely maid-of-honor Hes, and my two mothers mostly ;) Everything went smoothly, no one broke a heel, or had major sweat spots despite the heat :P

Thank you so much to all our special friends and family, who came out and showed their love and support to Rich and I! It was a little overwhelming at times and I can't think of a better word then blissful. :)

Mrs. Naomi Van Manen :) <3


Married!! ..Just as the receiving line started :)

My two dear friends: Cassie, and my maid of honour: Hes <3

At the afternoon reception: Victoria came all the way from Ottawa just for our wedding! Thank you my dear for making our day extra special!

Richs' Uncle Al let us use his amazing Corvette: my dream car :D

Forever and ever I love you. <3

We forgot to get some ring pictures done on the wedding, so I experimented with my camera while Rich fished on our honeymoon :)

Photo credits go to Cassie and Rich Vanderboom..Thank you!
more to come :)

I have to say...

My niece looks like a princess in her flowergirl dress.

She's beautiful.

As a side note..I picked up the suits this afternoon...good thing I checked the them because the ties..are GREEN!! Totally the wrong colour, and look awful next to the bridesmaid dress... :S I picked new ones out and the lady said they would be in on Friday..Hopefully they're the right colour!
