Fabulous Day!

The long-awaited wedding took place and everything flowed smoothly and joyfully. What a fabulous day! Perfect weather... love and joy were flowing freely... we all had a blast. Here's a wee peak at some of the events of the day.

reception at a city park -
food was delicious!!!


I had to make it a quilty event somehow... I gave this quilt to my SIL just because.. and a matching pillow for a good nap.


There are zillions more pictures. Some of them will show up here at my blog. Not right away, though. I'm tired!! I'm going to rest for a few days. And bask in the glow of happiness.

Yay!! I've been waiting all day for pictures...somehow, I thought you might just sneak away from your own son's wedding and upload a couple of pics for those of us who couldn't be there! Love your photos, as always. Looks like a great day! So happy for everyone.

Carol...it looks fun and wonderful. My own Liz and Steve got married beside a little lake. She wore capris and a white eyelet blouse, carried wildflowers. I think every bride and groom should get to have the wedding ceremony they want to have. Hats off to you & her parents for letting this newly married couple have their dream! They look so happy. May God bless them with a long and happy marriage!

Fun and happy. The way life should begin together.

They did it their way - or something like that - by good old blue eyes. May they have many happy years together.

What a beautiful day, Carol! I love to see couples do what makes them happy for their weddings, and not buy into what society "says" a wedding should look like. I hope you all enjoyed a day of love and good cheer :)
