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...
Angela, Mandie's Maid of Honor, made a lovely toast.
And they're so beautiful on the inside, too.
Let us just say Troy needed someone to "fetch my smelling salts!!" to keep from falling over when he saw her.
"I believe you lost a daisy, my dear?"
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..............
Angela, you and I look really weird here. Sort of a cool shot, though.
Receptions are SO fantastic. Especially when the room is filled with so many amazing friends....
Ah. Love them so much.
Showing us his prowess with sign language here.
And so, they were married.
