    Your daughter was a stunning bride- congrats to her!! And you, redceltic, look incredible!! At the risk of repeating others, you and your daughter look like sisters and yep- you and your boyfriend barely look 30.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    Yeah, he's tall. I'm 5'10" in those heels and still look short.

    I showed the pictures to DH and asked him to guess your age "Hmmm, late 20's maybe..." and when I told him he said "Woah, no way!" :lol:

    When I saw the first pic of you and your BF, I thought to myself "why isn't her daughter wearing a wedding dress?". Then I realized it was you! You look young! (I don't mean that as an insult - you look fabulous).

    Very great photos! You both look lovely.
    lol...I thought the same thing! You got some good genes, mama!

    Kudos to all the families for making it such a special day for your daughter. She's very lucky to have so much love from so many. Congrats...you and your daughter are gorgeous, and your BF is hot! :)

    frau's thoughts while viewing rcc's new wedding pics:
    oh, aren't they cute.
    i guess they're getting married at the courthouse since she's not wearing a wedding dress.
    wait a minute....if that's the bride, then who???
    no, that's not rcc....is it?
    then who is that guy?
    wait, read frau, READ!
    oh....he's cute.
    i wonder if they can get back together, they look like they would make a good couple.
    oh...doesn't her daughter look just like her?
    i wonder how old rcc was when she had her??
    i guess rcc was really young...like 15 because they look the same age.
    i better not ask how old she was when she had her because that would be rude.
    41??? (looks back at pics to find old people flaws...finds none)
    oh-em-gee, her hair is gor-geous! so pretty...i wonder if she used kinky curly pudding?
    what? a 30 year old boyfriend?!
    well, of course she looks 30 years old herself.
    i wonder why he didn't come?
    then again....i guess enough was going on already.
    looking forward to more pics!

    congrats rcc!! and may your first grandchild be a masculine one!

    Wow, so many posts. It makes it even happier to be able to share it all here.

    Wile E, the BF is the same height and weight as Roethlisberger. :lol: I thought you would enjoy that.

    Oddly, he is the first tall blonde I have dated since I dated the biodad, who is a tall blonde. BFs curls are what first caught my eye.

    The hair do was really easy. A ton of KCCC and a simple style from the Strictly Curls book that I love and some cute flowers from etsy.

    I'm a big sunscreen user. I mean, look at those legs. I am pale! That, along with lucky genes and some great skin care tips from RCW have been really helpful as far as skin aging stuff goes. Spring1, gotta love your husband.

    I'm really glad for the outfit help I had on my outfit thread. I'm glad I went with the yellow shoes.

    OBB, your Sirin will be quite the beautiful and charming woman with many suitors. I don't envy you. ;)

    It was interesting to see all sides of the birth and adoptive families there, along the groom's family. It all seemed to mesh well. People did have questions and wanted to relate stories that I missed. I was really greatful to heat more stories of all those years that I missed, a bit sad to feel all those years that I missed, and happy that she did have those good years, because I couldn't have given her that at that point in my life. Crap, I was 16 and pregnant before MTV made it fashionable, I couldn't cope.

    I got to talk more with biodad to compare what it was like those first few years. I pretty much shut down during the first year post partum and so we never really got to process any of that. It was nice to compare stories, share that, and feel some closure from it. I really like his wife (he married for the first time a year ago) and they got along pretty well with my BF. The only one a bit off was the biodad's mom. She was polite as the occasion required, but mostly standoffish and aloof. She wanted me and biodad to marry, and I was very agaisnt it.

    I also spent a lot of time talking to her adoptive parents' families. They all have been super wonderful, with none of the horror stories one reads about. I am so glad that she has such a great family on both sides of her adoptive family tree.

    It was also nice to have my GF and my parents with me. I may be 41, but I felt the need to have my parents with me.

    The groom's mother thanked me many times for the decision I made. She was sweet, and it was nice of her to acknowledge my decision.

    The reception was dry because the groom's parents are very religious and against having alcohol present. Luckily, the reception was at a Lodge in a reception room. There was a bar the next room over. I did have two beers while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive from their post ceremony photos. It did take the nervous edge off!

    The adoptive mom sent me a nice message on Facebook today.

    I'm glad that the whole experience has been so positive. It feels like a Lifetime movie (without the abusive man) or an Oprah show.

    She put a very moving note in the Bride's Thank You section of the program to me and biodad. It was a nice and classy touch for her to mention her happiness in finding her birth family while thanking her adoptive family in their own section for all the love the have shown in raising her.

    I'll probably have more once it all isn't spinning in my head so much... :)

    Yeah, that hug picture makes me all teary. I had to watch the hug so I didn't smash the big dress, lol.

    Frau, I soooo love you. :)

    I got confused once or so. The BF did come to the wedding with me. I just had someone take a picture of us since he wasn't family or wedding party, so didn't have a place in "official" photos.

    Well, I think the photographer did get one of us at the reception.

    I got one of him while waiting for the reception to start because his curls looked nice though looser than normal.

    I had her at 17, got pregnant at 16. She's 24 now.

    Heck yeah, I used Kinky Curly. I can't function without that stuff! :)

    I couldn't see any of the wedding pictures, but I did see the back of your hair and the boyfriend (have no idea why I can see those). Anyway, your hair is beautiful and the BF is pretty hot too!

    I uploaded the back of the hair and the boyfriend-at-the-bar via iPhone. I uploaded the wedding pics on a desktop. That might be the difference.
