 At your request, I will share some of the pictures that were so kindly and expertly captured for me by my dear sister, in the early afternoon hours before the 4:00pm wedding.  The wedding took place in our small country church, in the middle of farmland.  The day was cold, overcast, with light snow falling throughout the day.

The shoes she wore.  She found these at the mall a few weeks before and her aunt embellished them with rhinestone letters and snowflakes.  They fit her personality perfectly.

 The rhinestone tiara.  She always dreamed of wearing one of these at her wedding.

 The dress was the one she carried a picture of in her purse.  She saw it was on sale at one of the bridal's stores near our home.  The one remaining dress in the store, fit her perfectly without alterations.  She knew this was "her dress".

He is probably wondering, if she is really going to wear those shoes?

We laughed together.  We tried to keep the girls relaxed and occupied so that they would be ready to face the aisle ahead of them.

 Two black suits for two very special little guys...black converse sneakers included.

Two very special sisters to share in her wedding.  They helped her in so many ways, and she has learned so much from them over her years.


Bridal pictures were taken before the wedding.  The bride and groom did not see each other before the wedding.
Don't you love the little guy in the front?  He was so excited to be part of this wedding party...pillow pet included.

The tiniest guest at their wedding. 

The day we waited for is about to begin.  Tomorrow I will share some wedding pictures.  If you interested, you can stop by and visit.
Thank you for stopping by and for sharing in our special event.  Your visits and comments continually bless my life in many ways.

Thank you for sharing your daughter's wedding with us!! I smiled all the way through this post. Those shoes are just adorable and what a smart girl to choose something cute and comfortable. Her tiara looks beautiful atop her gorgeous hair and the wedding dress really was waiting just for her and she looks stunning in it.
My goodness, Judy, you must be so proud and happy (& a bit tired too :). Beautiful photos of a beautiful family. My best wishes to the newlyweds.

Darling everything! loved it ALL!
I kind of laugh at all the brides who wear sneakers or rubber flip flops under their ball gown dresses. Four generations from now people will see these pictures and explain that great great grandma had bad feet and was kind of poor, so she had to wear sneakers to her wedding so she could still dance at the ball afterwards. The tiara was because she was one either a home coming queen or their was some distant royal family connection of which only fortune remaining was the tiara.
Isn't that how family legends get started: trying to explain a long past fashion element? (My own grandmother was photographed with a friend on the beach; both of them had woolen swim suits and huge fox stoles wrapped around their shoulders. What the heck was THAT fashion all about???)

Most brides don't know that the strapless ball gown was created so when the woman lifted her arms to embrace her partner for dancing, her dress straps would not bind on her shoulders as the evening wore on. I do hope this lovely bride enjoyed each and every dance with her new groom both now and in the future!

I've been through all the wedding segments, and now I'm heading back to look at that penguin again.

What a tender day; one crafted with all the primary elements of such a worthy celebration, but also a sweetness I rarely see at weddings.
