Love, Sweet Love

On Saturday we experienced a wonderful celebration of love as my son married his sweetheart and best friend.
They wanted a intimate, country wedding and, I have to say, the end result was beautiful and personal. It was truly a family affair. My sister and brother-in-law graciously offered their house as the site for the wedding. My niece performed the ceremony and my niece-in-law, who is a professional photographer, took the pictures. One of my good friends made the invitations and my former sister-in-law made the cake. The happy couple was surrounded by people who love them and wanted them to have the perfect day.
While we don't have the "official" pictures yet, several people were kind enough to share pictures they took throughout the day.
They were married under this rustic arbor made by my brother-in-law.

Lesley walks down the aisle with her father....
Vows are exchanged.....
As are the rings......
And Emily runs up to give her mom and new stepdad a hug.
The ceremony was followed by a picnic dinner, wedding cake, a country western band, dancing and the blessings of family and good friends!


  1. What a gorgeous bride and handsome groom! Congratulations to your lovely family!

  2. Fantastic! I always wanted to get married in a field of daisies and ride off in a covered wagon! Allergies put an immediate stop to those plans!
    Best wishes to the bride and groom.
