Happily Ever After

 My family was blessed to attend a very special wedding this weekend.  This beautiful bride has been a part of my life for many years.  I have watched her grow from a little girl into a beautiful Godly woman.  She, and her two sisters,  babysat for my daughters when they were small.  Isn't her groom handsome?  They have dated since 8th grade!
 Her parents are farmers and live in the country.  The wedding was held at their home in the back yard.  The cows were also part of the ceremony.  Watching contently from the fence line occasionally giving a moo to let us know they were there.  It was truly a magical day!
 She and her sisters made a lot of things homemade for the wedding.  Like their bouquets.  Are they not spectacular???  They are made from paper.
 Here I am with one of the brides sisters and my darling nephew.
 Such adoration......
This is the younger sister.  All three of these girls have such a place in my heart.  
They had this old two seater bike they rode at the wedding.  The groom bought this bike and packed a picnic lunch for her and they rode it together to a special spot he had picked out.  It was at this picnic where he proposed to her!  So, the bike had to make it to the wedding and into the pictures as well.
And here is the quilt that I made for them for their wedding day.

It was a magical day.  God gave them the most perfect day.   I was blessed to see some of my most favorite people again back home for something so very very special.
