Gracie and David's Wedding 12/28/13

A wedding. It reminds us of so many things, and rejoices our hearts as we watch two people become one before the Lord. We were so blessed to be present at the marriage covenant of Gracie Smith to David Powell in December. May God bless this precious young couple as they seek and serve the Lord together!
The lovely programs...
While we waited in the lobby for the seating to begin (we were early!!!!! Wow!! :D ) young T. came all a spiff, and was SO manly and precious, greeting us all and shaking the men's hands and then stood there like a small gentleman, engaged in pleasant conversation. :D He makes me smile!!
Kisses for Paul, for being his wonderful self.
"You've got a little splotch, right, right, there..."
Andrew and T.
The Hagens are here!!!!

Mumsie and Auntie are seen here, so beautiful in pearls and cardigans.
We got to speak to Mr. Mike, (the FOB) before the ceremony. The Smith family is an incredible blessing to us...

(I wonder what it's like, just minutes from giving one of your little girls away?)
We're all seated, and I espy Campana!
Gabby, I love you.
Uncle Marc and Aunt Laura a row behind us....

Love, beautiful love all around you, some new, some together for years, only deepening with the time that's passed....
The Heavenly Hagen Herd Huddles Happily, Hailing, "Hello! Howbeit ye Happened Here Hitherto?" "Haha," (Hollered the Hahiraians) the Highway Happens to be Handsome this Hour, Hence our Having the Honor of Hearing the Harmoniousness words of the Happy...Houple!

That is a lot of H's. :D
You're welcome.
Marth and Tayte!!! (and I love this one of Daddy, laughing...)
"...Young love, first love, filled with deep devotion..."
"How good and how pleasnat it is,for brethren to dwell together in unity...for there the Lord commanded the blessing-life forever."
Charming roses at the reception. Everything was so beautiful!! A chocolate fountain, coffee punch (!!)  and tables laden with tasty treats of all kinds...not to mention Jennifer's fabulous (and gorgeous) wedding cake!! She is amazing.
John decides The Couple needs some additional people for their picture. Haha! This child delights my heart. (and his bow tie, too, which is very good.)
Oh my goodness, M&T are one adorable duo!! They are so perfect, each for the other. (and look, he's even got the perfect amount of inches to make the perfect silhouette with her!!! Awww!! Yayy!)

Watching engaged couples at weddings is too cute. :D
Nick, Jay and Frank dominate the chocolate fountain.

;D    (I love cruel pictures of wonderful people eating)
Little flower girl!
It's so good to watch Mama and Auntie be together. :) They have so much fun.
The lovely junior bridesmaid, Charis!
Me and my baby-buddy, again!
Random around-the-table shot. :D Making me laugh....
David and Gracie went around and spoke to all their guests. They were wonderful!!

Above, they pretend to look interested.
Marth with two stalwart young specimens!!!
Mr. Mike and Mrs. Deborah. A beautiful couple, and precious friends...
 
Aww. 'Der's a cute cake topper.
I spotted Mr. T. with Young Sprout.

"Yes, yes..." he added with a quiet chuckle, "the chloroform really works..."
Listening to speeches and toasts.
Oh. my. word.
This has got to be one of the cutest couple I've ever seen.
(He caught the bride's bouquet.)

(Just kidding.)
 Dear Amanda, and Jean Marie!! (whom I finally had the pleasure of meeting after years of seeing her around on blogs...so fun when that happens. :)  )
And, the time has come for the new family to depart!!!
 
Goodbye!!!!!
 Afterwards, we decided to invade Jason's Deli with the Campana family!!!
Four beastly business men have a meeting with...
...the two suave billionaires on the other side of the table.
Meanwhile, the two secretaries attract the attention of the local authorities...

:D Love all our men!
Parking lot talking. :) (It must have been cold)

 We look at pictures on the camera together.

"Wow!! Dude! You got the kiss? Man, zoom in!!"
Four of us girlies!
I'm so blessed in these three.
(Miss you girls so much!!)
 Roses
 May God bless this wonderful new family. Congratulations, Gracie and David!

Love,
Adeline, for all

Awww! I love all your photos!!! It is great to get another angle than the photographers! I so appreciate all of the Morton Clan coming and not only participating, but also helping so much with the clean up and redecorating! Thank you all so much!!!

Loved the pictures Adeline, thank you for sharing them!

That is too funny about the comment my husband said, I can totally hear him saying that. :D

And the "cutest couple" I don't if you've had the opportunity to meet them but he is our good friend Mr. Phil and that is his mother there with him. ;) That made me chuckle, hehe!

Jenifer said...
