Our son Peter and his bride Justine’s
And even though this shot was out of focus
It’s my favorite!!!
|The bride with her new sister~in~law, our daughter Amy
Rain held off until after the wedding had begun with
only a few sprinkles while the final professional wedding shots
were being taken.
All of the flowers were custom~made by the
mother of the bride, and the bridesmaids and family
helped create and set up the table decorations.
Everything was specially planned
with much meaning
behind all of the decor.
|Love this picture of Justine, my new daughter!
Flower girl’s headpiece was also crafted
by the mother of the bride.
She is the bride’s youngest cousin and a spitting~image
of the bride at that age!
|The bridesmaids’ bouquets
Every wedding is such a personal expression
of the love between the newly married couple
and between each of the family members…
Small remembrances mean so much
and add so much to the occasion.
The bride and groom had a
made sharing favorite photographs of
grandparents who have passed ~ just lovely
and very touching…
|My parents can just be seen to the right in the candlelit memory glass, above right. Guest signatures are written on small
wooden hearts, along with happy wishes for the new couple, then slipped down between the frame’s two sheets of glass.
In place of a Guest Book the couple found
an idea online to create a picture frame where guests who
attended the wedding and reception sign hearts instead!

Table decor is always fun to create for a wedding and of course the couple’s lavender and green colors
Elegance and simplicity
made the day a happy one
for the bride and groom.
The four~tiered wedding cake
draped in rosemary and lavender branches
tied together and topped with a
“branding iron~style initials and heart”
wrapped up the day in style!
Who could ask for a lovelier day?
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. ~ Proverbs 18:22
our happy couple,
