♥ Wedding Day ♥

The wedding was wonderful!! The bride was beautiful, the groom was giddy,
and we all had a great time. Their mutual love for God and each other was apparent to everyone that attended. I wish I'd taken more photos, but I'll share the few I did take. I'm glad they had a couple of professional photographers there to record their special day. This one is from McKenna Pendergrass Photography, a wonderful photographer and dear friend of our family. 
And in case you're wondering, 
yes, they really looked like this all day :) 

Randy and Sarah are planning to move
to So. Korea for a year to teach, so the wedding had a "travel" theme.

This was the table that greeted you as you walked up. Gifts were placed here,

along with a place to leave love letters for the bride and groom. 

They were married at 1000 Pines Christian Camp,
(where my older son works) :) It was such a beautiful setting, and the weather was perfect!

Sarah and her talented family created the tabletop decorations and all of the delicious food.

The sign that greeted you as you entered the chapel :)

The beautiful couple (I'm not a bit partial, either), lol.

Getting ready to cut the cake...which was delicious carrot cake. 

My oldest son and best man, making a toast to his brother and his new bride,
There were tears for this (yes, he made his mama cry)
there were even a few from the groom, I believe :)

I just had to share this photo because it was so cute. This is Sarah's niece with her
daddy. She and her sister were the flower girls. Isn't she adorable?

We were a little windblown, but very proud parents.
(and now you know why one son has dark hair and the other is blonde) .

We are so blessed to add Sarah to our family as our new daughter-in-love.
Many thanks to her wonderful family for all of the work they did
to make this day so special for the happy couple.
