Here are some pictures of my wedding to my highschool sweetheart last April. He was truly a gift from the Lord. I am a living and walking testimony to the awsomeness of our amazing God! After a heartbreaking few years He brought me to a place of deeper peace and reliance on Him. I have such a greater depth of understanding and love for the Father.
Here is our whole blended family. The four red-heads are my daughters Jessica, Katharine, LeslieAnn, and Madelaine. Bo's two children are Courtney and AJ.
I wanted a very colorful wedding as you can tell with the lime green, orange, coral, and pinks. I just loved my two youngest daughters flower girl dresses. I can't bear to part with either of them.
My bouquet turned out so pretty! I purchased all the flowers and made the arrangements with my daughters the night before. We wrapped them in wide white silk ribbon and added bling monograms on each bouquet. Do you think they turned out pretty?
I love this sweet shot of Madelaine and the flower petals scattered on the ground. I later found out that she was her usual flamboyant self and kept everyone amused during the ceremony making mischief as she tends to do.
We had a sand ceremony to symbolize the blending and uniting of our families. We had 9 different colors, our pastor used white to represent Christ as the unifying presence in our home and our family.
One of my favorite pictures in front of the falls.
Those strawberries were so beautiful AND tasty!
I just love all the colors of the fruit!
These are the best patries you could ever eat! My sweet friend Michelle is a pastry chef and makes scrumptious Lady Locks, Eclairs, and Cream Puffs! I like having her as a friend! Yum Yum!
The cake was so pretty with all the colorful roses! Michelle made a simple tiered cake and she decorated it with ribbons and roses!
The cake stand was a gift from my daughter Jessica. It is one of my favorite things and I always keep a cloche on it with something for the season. I call it my table chandy! HomeGoods of course! Wish I had bought every one they had!
These gerber daisies were our favors. I added magnets to the backs and placed a little thank you note asking our guests to please pray for our marriage to honor and glorify the Lord. Most people took one of each color and I love to go to some of my friends houses and see them still hanging on their fridge!
I made these streamer wands to wave us off on our honeymoon. Yes, we did manage a honeymoon with 6 kids. Hope we can squeeze in a special 1 year anniversary trip without the kids too! I think hubby has something special in the works!
Thank you for taking a little journey with me on a very special day in my life! It has been a very momentous past year with our marriage, Jessica graduating college, Katharine graduating highschool, and Jessica getting married in August!!! I hope this year will be a little less busy but just as full of love and blessings as the past year has been. May you have a very blessed New Year and find pleasure in the wonder of our Lord Jesus Christ.
