Before the Ceremony Began.........

What a whirlwind last week was!  But Rachel and David are officially married and starting school and a new job today.  The wedding was lovely, God held the rain back, and this young couple was very blessed by family and many good friends!

Rachel is very creative and had very definite ideas of how she wanted everything decorated! 
 It all turned out beautifully!

The ladies of the bridal party were all in the nursery, so that's the reason for the toys on the floor and the Cubbie's posters on the walls!  David's sister, Rosie, did Rachel's hair and make-up.

We were so glad to see Courtney!  She and Rachel have talked about being each other's 
Maid-of-Honor since they were about nine years old!  This was a very
special time for these two sisters!

I can hardly believe this precious daughter of mine is now married!

 Isaac and Joshua got dressed minutes, yes I said minutes before the that no
disaster would befall them in their ring bearer outfits!  They did a great job!

Meanwhile, out in the sanctuary, Courtney, Joe, and Mr. Rhoden were setting up my laptop with
 SKYPE so Jonathan could enjoy the ceremony!  He got up at 2:15 am and got to participate for
 three hours - that was so very special!

My very good friend, Beth, and her husband Drew, drove down from Phoenix for the big event and
so graciously picked up my parents along the way!

David and Grandpa!

Ahhhhh.......what a tender moment.  Dad and daughter, just before they were headed down the aisle!

Actual wedding and reception photos to come later!


  1. Thank you for sharing. Although I was there, it is always fun to see pictures from another point of view!

  2. How wonderful that Jonathon was able to be a part of things even from a distance! Beautiful! I can't wait to read and see more. :)

  3. Aw...So sweet! And your daughter looked stunning. I noticed the tissue in your hand....moms.
