My sister, sister-in-law (or S.I.L. as I like to call her ;), and I gathered at my mother-in-law’s beauty shop. I think having my new, second mom help me was a beautiful way to begin the day’s preparations.

 

 
We arrived at the church around 2 o’clock and began getting dressed and taking pre-sighting pictures.

 

 

 

 
 
Bridesmaids!

 
 
My dear cousins who filled the whole weekend with laughter and joy.

The reception took place at the nearby youth center which had been decorated the day before by

Looking back at my dear mother as we had off to our little home
 
. . .
 
 
In many ways it feels like I’ve been married for twenty years instead of the fresh one week today. Our wedding was wonderfully special. So many friends and family members pitched in and helped and on the day of the wedding I stood in shock, peeking from my hiding place, at all the people who came to celebrate our day.
 
I am very grateful for my friend Amelia Protiva from Simply Perky Photography and her assistant, Jessica. They were so incredibly wonderful and professional all while being warm and discreet.
I think their photos reflect the day so well.
 
I thank God for giving me to Dalton.
 
I also thank Him for answering our prayers and making our wedding one of peace and simple beauty–may He get all the glory!
 
With a happy, happy heart,
 
Frannie

    Frannie, you look so radiantly beautiful – not just your dress and your veil and the church, although all of those are so beautiful and joyful that they brought smiles to my face, but you. Your face. I see the love and hope and happiness shining from your eyes and your smile. You are an awesome sight to behold!!

    I agree that these photos almost make me feel as if I had been there – thank you so much for sharing them with us! I wish I could have celebrated your big day with you; but thanks to your wonderful photos, I'm celebrating it with you in my heart! πŸ˜€

    Take care, Frannie, and I pray that the Lord would richly bless these precious first days that you and Dalton have together!! Hugs, tears, smiles and blessings coming your way!

    Lots of love,
    Vicki

  3. Oh Frannie! What a beautiful day this must have been! You are a gorgeous bride, not only on the outside, but also from the pure love and Christ likeness of heart. Your husband is quite charming πŸ™‚ and the decor and settings of your special day are simply delightful. I am so happy for you dear sister, and pray God's richest blessings on your marriage!
    Hugs,
    Shannon
