My brother Jonathan got married two days after Thanksgiving.
It was a whirlwind romance and a whirlwind weekend-but one filled with beauty and joy and happiness. The wedding was an intimate affair- with only the closest immediate family present and instructed to wear something blue!
The wedding was done on a shoestring was but was done beautifully and tastefully. You don't need a lot of money to make things beautiful. Weddings are usually grown-up affairs but this one was laden with children of all ages and stages. And best of all, everywhere you looked there were loving and personal touches. That is the best sort of wedding, if you ask me.
This was the first wedding I felt as if I should write a thank-you note to the bride and groom. Jonathan made necklaces for all the ladies (even the youngest ones!) and beer holders for all the men. There were bowties for the boys and little golden jars of honey for all. And on the way out, there was a bag of snacks for the drive home for each family! Amazing, right?!?
Here are a few pictures of their day:
|My sister Elizabeth made the cakes and cupcakes|
|There was lots of paparazzi everywhere!|
|Jonathan made the wedding rings himself and a leather bracelet for Mary that said BREATHE. Sweetness.|
|Adele' made sure I understood that her skirt must be VERY twirly. Here she is testing it out.|
|Me and My Peeps|
Beautiful bride. Beautiful couple. Beautiful day.
May the Lord bless your marriage and draw you both, hand in hand, closer to Him every day of your lives. Love you!
