Wedding Photos

I have a few wedding pictures. I imagine I will show you so many you will be tired of them. This was the flowers that Emilie worked on right up to it was time for her to go get dressed. She put in fiber optics so that they had this subtle glow in the flowers. This was the bridesmaids bouquet.

 Nik and Em's after they were married. She did her and Nik's flowers as well and there is a whole long story behind that, I had flowers everywhere my fridge was full of buckets of flowers trying to keep them cold. Then the wind came up right before the ceremony started and caught the flowers that were on the tables like sails and we were frantically running around taking the vases away and just putting roses on the mirrors.

She had never done bouquets before. Nothing like a baptism through fire. She worked so hard.
I was in such a panic for her.

She finally made it to this part of the day. She kept putting everyone ahead of her so that they could have the make up and the hair done first. We had to finally drag her in here. She really put everyone before herself.
She never thought at all of herself but of everyone else and the people here who were her guests. She said, when it was just her and I waiting for her Dad to come and get her, "Mom all of these people are here for me." I don't think she ever thought of it until then.

The bridal party. My oldest daughter on the left, Em's maid of honor, Ruthie, Em's and Nik My niece, and
Our- what- would- we- have- done- without- Megan- who kept us on our toes. Wedding planner extraordinaire The groomsmen were wonderful and such a wonderful group of gentlemen..


Our 4 sons and Ems. She grew up right in the middle between two older brothers and two younger ones.
I love this picture so much.

Finally married!! I just have to tell you from that first time he walked through the door, I have begged God to let him be our newest son. I am so very thankful that God has answered our prayers. He is just the best.
When she was so sick, I got to see what a wonderful guy he is and I knew then, God blessed us beyond anything I have ever thought or asked. It really does work that as soon as you are given that new baby, to start praying for that baby's mate. So far I have been blessed out of my socks.

That tree in our front yard just looks like a fairy tale doesn't it. Just think she spent so much time climbing around it as a little kid with her brothers and cousins and then it made the perfect arch for her wedding.

Our family, I am the short grandma looking one.

Our two families now united in marriage. Quite a crowd isn't it?

I will have more to show you so I will stop now. This is just the few I have right now. It was worth all of the work. I think though, I am okay with waiting awhile before another one.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing in our joy.

  7. Oh Kim I was sooo excited when I saw your title. I have been waiting for you to post. First off your new header which was obviously the scene for the day is just a stun! I love it. Looks like a fairy tale. And your daughter is just GORGEOUS! Soo pretty and soo happy. I think the flowers are beautiful! She did a wonderful job with them. Probably kind of stressful, but they were soo pretty. I too love the picture of your kids! Soo nice looking all of them. And your daughter with two older and two younger, how cherished she must be. I am anxiously awaiting to see more now, haha. Hope you enjoyed your father's day celebrations.

  9. Beautiful pictures from beginning to end. What a lovely wedding. The flowers are gorgeous and so is the bride. What a lovely young woman. I love that she is so unselfish and things of others first before of thinking of herself. I admire that very much in a person.

    I'm so glad that you were so blessed with such a nice family. I love that you had an outdoor wedding right in your backyard. That tree has a lot of stories to tell.

    Thanks so much Kim for sharing this special event with us. I feel like I was right there.

    Hugs and smiles,
    JB
