Wedding Pix

We look forward to seeing the professional photographer's pictures. He had a great time using all the scenery around us. For now here are some pics that people at the wedding took.

The wedding began in the great room with the procession down the stairs. Once the wedding party was gathered at the wall of windows facing the backyard and lake, the ceremony moved outside to the gazebo. The wedding party processed out, and everyone watching followed.

The groom looked handsome and so happy. The bride looked like she'd just stepped off the cover of Brides magazine. (I have no pictures of me and Mark yet. But trust me, we did attend.)

in the forefront.)

where the ceremony took place, strewn flowers on the hardwood floor,
the lake and town in the background.

I have to add I sighed at the dance photo. LOVE the romance of it. Can't you just feel the sizzle?

Awww, Brandilyn! I can't believe you now have a married son! LOL! I'm betting it's still settling in for you too. Can't wait to see news about a future grandma. Hee hee...okay, sorry to tease you like that. ;-)

What a wonderful day, and a gorgeous couple. May God bless their marriage richly and always be the center of their union. Hugs!
