The Wedding!

Our son, Andy, married his longtime sweetheart, Jamie, last weekend and it was simply beautiful!  We are so happy for this special couple who have literally known each other most of their lives!

Both the bride and groom each chose 10 attendants.  They have lots of friends and wanted to include as many of them as possible.  We hosted the whole crew including their spouses and kids after the rehearsal.

The next morning, the ladies were up early getting their hair and makeup fixed!

The wedding was in our small town church.

And the most handsome ringbearer ever!

The reception was in a new venue in our area and was so pretty!
It was two stories with the center open for those upstairs to view the 
toasts to the bride and groom.

Each table was decorated with wooden chargers Andy and J cut from logs on our farm.  The wedding coordinator created lovely centerpieces using these with other elements including a variety of pictures of Andy and Jamie throughout high school and college...and beyond.  Each table had a different photograph.

And let me share the dessert table!  One of their high school friends is a professional baker and she created all the cupcakes and small wedding cake.  A friend's mother also made a variety of handmade candies!  To be honest, people were not just admiring these tables before the meal!  LOL!

Just few more pictures ...

There was lots of dancing out on the patio.

These photos were all candids taken by family and friends but of all of them, 
this is my favorite!  

We love these two so much and wish them many happy and blessed years together!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!

Zenda, everything and everyone looks gorgeous. So many beautiful photos relaying the joy and happiness of your family's celebratory day. The bride, exquisite in her lovely dress; your son dapper and handsome in his wedding attire; and oh how beautiful you look. Such a lovely photo of you dancing with your son. And yes, your Jack is the handsomest ringbearer, ever. I love the little peek of Jack sitting on his granddad's knee in the church. The reception venue is a beautiful place; just perfect for such a wonderful celebration of love and happiness.

First...I agree: cutest ring bearer ever! What a doll! HUGE wedding party, but it looks like it was 100% manageable. Everyone looked absolutely fabulous, and it looks like a good time was most definitely had by all! The dessert tables...WHAT?!??!?! WOW!!! Isn't it a blessing to have such talented friends to chip in for the festivities? Makes it that much more special. Like the wood slices used to create the centerpieces. Just SPECIAL in every way. I'm sure someone has BIG plans for those for future use! Congratulations to your son, best wishes to the bride, and WOO HOO to all who made the day so memorable for everyone!
