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

Dalton surprised his mom by requesting “Cotton Eyed Joe.” As you can see, fun was had all around. 🙂

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,
