And then-

It's the wedding day.

It always surprises me.

You wake up that morning, everything looks the same, sun's up as always...but-then you realize-it's THE day!
The day someone you love has been waiting for, preparing for and that you've all been praying for. It's the day two lives will be created into one life. It's a holy day and you jump up, all excited and start attacking 'The Master List" that always finds itself being made, and then the hustle and bustle that you remember with fondness begins...
Sparkling grape juice to toast with and sip on as we got ready!

Angela, Mandie's Maid of Honor, made a lovely toast.
Bride's Maids and Sisters
Mandie's beautiful veil...
Hair time! Gracie, you did a lovely job with some lovely hair.
There were yummies present. One must be sustained whilst one curls ones hair.
Amanda's beautiful bracelet and ring, both from her great grandmother...aren't they incredibly exquisite?
Beautiful, beautiful girls - Margaret, Amanda D. and Rosemary!!!

And they're so beautiful on the inside, too.
I love it when journals are passed around, and moments are taken to preserve the memory and record of days.
The Bride!
Let us just say Troy needed someone to "fetch my smelling salts!!" to keep from falling over when he saw her.
General delightful chaos!

"I believe you lost a daisy, my dear?"
She and her Mom...
Mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, grandmother...
"A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband..." proverbs 12, 4 a

Brittany's here!!! Love that girl so much....
"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels." Isaiah 61:10

 And then, they were married.

God was so glorified, and I think pretty much everybody cried. Not for sadness, of course, but just watching God's faithfulness and beauty happen right in front of you. It was truly awesome.

After the ceremony..............
 Terry teaches his little girl the fine art of airplaning. LOL.
With their nieces and nephews...

Angela, you and I look really weird here. Sort of a cool shot, though.
Precious Rosemary!!!
Brothers Hilarious keeping things even lighter then they already were!
"It's 'de kiss. Always make it like it's your first kiss, and your last kiss..."
Terry joins the bridesmaids...
Yes. This was a really fun photo session. Brothers, it.
With their amazing parents....
LOL, this shot is goldeness!! You know how you can hear people's laughs when you look at certain pictures?
Receptions are SO fantastic. Especially when the room is filled with so many amazing friends....
It's Uncle and Auntie!!!!

Ah. Love them so much.
And Sir Cracker!!!

There they are!!!!! Goodbye, darling new couple!!!

And so, they were married.
