Our wedding proofs have arrived and I am so excited!
There are too many to share and I don't want to bore you to death. I know I prefer blog posts that are short, sweet, to the point, and include lots of pictures, lol. So I will post my wedding photos in groups! Today, I will share with you the procession....
I think my parents are such a great couple!
They are just such a good match in every way - looks, personality, heart! I can't express the gratitude and love I have for my parents. They were, in my mind, the most perfect parents in the world... and continue to be. Generous, supportive, parent, and as we have gotten older, friend. I love you mom and dad!
Our good friend Patrick and Moo (Megan).
I love the colors!
These two (and their spouses) are so special to us. Patrick makes us laugh on a daily basis and has truly become a best friend to Chris. We have come to know and love him, his wife Amanda, and their baby (soon to be -ies). Moo - well, you know. It is Megan's spirit that is a blessing not just to me or our Friends or Habitat, but to the world. She is an inspiration. And her family, is our family.
Scott and Lauren. You know Lauren. Brilliant. Beautiful. Hilarious. She is the sister of my heart and I will forever cherish our life-long friendship. Her husband was amazing at the wedding too. He filmed and served and was a great blessing. Dawson wasn't there, but he got in on the prep. Scott Kinney has also blessed our lives. He is such an example. I don't know a more kind-hearted individual, he is deep, and loving, and the funniest person I know.
She is the sweetest little girl in the world. Her heart is pure. She is the most thoughtful and kind soul at such a young age. "Our wedding" she calls it. She makes our hearts sing.
This is the part of our wedding that I thought was most likely to make me cry. I just knew when I looked at Dad, I would lose it. But everything happened so quickly, and I didn't cry. My Daddy is good. Everything about him to the very core is good. He is genius, can do anything, can fix everything, and loves with all his heart.
As this point, I just wanted to lay eyes on my husband. I tried and tried to get a clear view... and finally...
...there he was. When our eyes finally met, he simply smiled a huge smile and breathed, "WOW." It was priceless. At that moment, my heart was at total and complete peace. There were no tears, just pure joy.
And beside Chris, Web. Chris' brother of the heart. Life takes us on wild and crazy roads and busy times and slow, but their friendship will always be constant. Chris loves him like a true brother. What a great man to be in our lives.
I feel so blessed to have so many truly wonderful people in our lives. We can learn from each one of them. We joyfully share laughs and memories and love with all of them. The word that continues to come to mind, is... blessed.
