Life is full of events that will forever imprint special memories that will last all of our lives. We have certain birthdays like sweet 16 or double digits at 10 or what about 21? What about those story book Christmas years where everyone is together and happy and there is a little snow falling outside? Those are just a tiny sampling of special memories that we have but none compare to the wedding day!
The wedding day is such an important day in the lives of the bride and groom and their family and friends. The air is filled with excitement and anticipation. It is also filled with some anxiety in the participants that everything will go smoothly but most of all its is filled with love and newness. Newness of a newly formed family and families.
The moment when the bridle music begins to play and the beautiful bride enters the room and the groom catches a glimpse of his breathtaking bride and then he becomes nervous and emotional as he watches his lifemate, the gift that God gave him walk down the aisle towards him.
The ceremony in this particular wedding was performed by the grooms grandfather, a retired minister! As he quoted from the bible the couple exchanged glances,smiles and vows to each other,the simplicity but yet complicated,challenging and rewarding life will begin with the promises made that day. It was a short but yet sweet ceremony symbolized by the lighting of candles and rings. There was a brief time for some family portraits and then on to a reception dinner. The couple was then treated to a walk through sparklers just outside the fellowship building. All the food was prepared by the grooms mother Vanessa Hullender and it was deliciously prepared with love from a mother wanting to send her son and daughter in law off with a beautiful wedding!
I truly enjoyed being a part of this important day for this sweet young couple and I have a few pictures to share of their day! I hope you enjoy
