A Beautiful Day
Hello dear friends! Well....today is my first day back to the real world. I kinda feel like sanity is in the foreseeable future, but, that is really quite questionable at this point. Any way, now I can show you a little more of my oldest son's wedding. His bride knew in her mind exactly what she wanted, and it truly came together in a miraculous way. Neither the bride or groom wanted anything fancy......just the closest of friends and family. Unfortunately, the most of my family lives far distances, and with a family reunion right around the corner (as in this past wk-end) only a few could come. The bride's family was so accommodating. We really came to love them during this time. They did everything possible to make this day so special. The bride wanted a couple of things a certain way and would not budge on them. One was her dress, and the other was her photographer. Both of those choices were absolutely excellent. When you see the photos, you'll see what I mean:)
Here's the dress....and I LOVE this photo of it.
My beautiful new daughter in law. Gorgeous.
Me, trying hard to prepare myself to let my son go.....forever. It's a very bittersweet moment in a mother's life when her oldest child weds.
My Zeb. The first child to completely own my heart. Now a man, and he still has it:)
All of my boys. From left to right, my second son, Coy. Next, my nephew, Justin. My oldest son, Zeb. My third son, Benjamin, and last, but not least, my husband of 29 years Tony.
From l to r. My daughter Anna. Amanda's aunt Debbie. Amanda. Amanda's sister, Amber. An lastly, Amanda's niece Kyla.
Table w/fans Amanda made for the guests (it was HOT!!) and lavender cups to throw afterwards. Also cute sign made by the bride. And now just a bunch of shots I won't blab about.....I think they speak for themselves.
The end:) AND......They lived happily ever after:))
Thanks so much to the awesome photographer Alex Bee.
Blessings to you all~~Shine
I am a very happy wife of 32 years. A mother to three awesome sons and one beautiful daughter. I have homeschooled for 24+ years. I have a deep love for all things old. People, art, material things, lost crafts. I am a crazy lover of The Lord, always seeking to draw closer to Him.
My blog title came from my husband who started calling me Sunshine the day we met. Over the years the name was shortened to Shine and sometimes I wonder if he really even knows my given name!!! I am not an eloquent writer, not gifted that way as so many bloggers are....I just have a heart to share things with my friends and family that are far away yet so very dear to my heart<3.
