The Wedding!!!


Wow! What a day!  Lots of planning and prep from so many.  Details, lists, stress, and more details.. but then the big day comes and it all is worth the effort!  Yesterday my son was married to the most beautiful, sweet woman!  I could not imagine a more perfect woman for my son.   The wedding was small… a few close  friends and family .. but was sooo nice, intimate and beautiful.    The reception was at my home after the wedding.   I did not get as many pics of the reception as I wanted.. but it was so much fun!  I had 30+ people here.  We served lots of food…  I made lasagna, meatballs in bbq sauce, ceaser salad and Lolot made chicken adobo, noodles, clams and shrimp.   I had punch and coffee.  My friend Debi came to my house while we were at the wedding and set up the whole buffet.. I really don’t know what I would have done without her.. I had originally planned to come home and set it up myself.. that would have been a real tough job!  So I was soooo thankful for her help!   There was just so much good fellowship, fun and enjoyment … it was all a huge blessing to us.   This was also the first time in YEARS I had all my children under my roof at the same time.... I can’t tell you what a blessing that was..   so much good for this mama’s heart.     My friend Sarah was also my biggest blessing once again …  I told everyone that I do not know what I would do without her for all of life’s major events.. she is my faithful loving friend who is always by my side (she is the one that helped me deliver my grandsons too)..  she is as close to me as any sister could ever be and I love her dearly..  she did hair, decorated the church and directed everything I could not be there to direct.. and all this just two weeks before her own sons wedding ( her son, by the way,  was my sons best man.. Richards best and closest friend).. Below are pictures of the wedding, pics of our family and more.  Thank you so much for sharing in our exciting joyous day!

  9. Crystal,

    Thank you for sharing a part of your family's special day. I especially like the photo of your children in birth order; it's a good one.

    You and Tobin look too young to have grown children and grandchildren.

    Congratulations to your whole family.

  15. How happy you must be to have a Christian for your son's new wife. Today's young woman have many men before they marry. You must be happy to have taught your son to wait for the one the Lord wanted him to have not just the one he wanted. Terrible things happen to a couple when sex comes before the vows,may this not be your situation. God Bless.

  16. What a beautiful wedding and family. Thanks for sharing it with us all.
