A wedding weekend overflowing with family, friends and faith

It was that kind of weekend — the only two warm sunny days sandwiched between two weeks of rain — ideal timing for a glorious outdoor family wedding.

There is no writing application hiding at the end of this post. Instead, please indulge me while I share a few photos. My head and heart are filled with memories of a sweet union of two families, and of our home being joy-filled with the happy chaos of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There was no time for writing!

Wedding 1

The wedding’s chosen theme was a little vintage, a little country… elegant, but in a casual, relaxed way. Peeking out from under the bride’s white lace were the toes of her cowboy boots; the groom’s attendants wore cowboy boots with jeans. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

Throughout the ceremony the focus was on the Christian faith of this special couple. At the end of the service as they symbolically braided three cords, our eyes were drawn to the words of Ecclesiastes 4:12, prominently displayed behind them, reinforcing the declaration that this was to be a three-way union, with God integrally woven into their lives.

It was that kind of weekend — one filled with cherished family and friends, enriched with love and faith. We were blessed!

    Beautiful, in so many ways. Visually: the photos, the decorations, the couple (of course!), and weather are stunning. Emotionally: tugging at my heart, prompting me to remember my own wedding day fourteen years ago. Spiritually, a lovely and powerful reminder that a Christian marriage isn’t between one man and one woman, but one man, one woman, and the God who brought them together.

    That bride was just gorgeous I love the lace and the old fashioned look, we went to a wedding about a month ago and it was very similar outside by a water fountain and the flowers were all white dahlias and white roses and the bride was as beautiful. Lace old fashioned with white roses in her hair. Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

I'd love to hear from you!
