When I was younger, I had a love for little children. The neighborhood children were my joy. I would plan special evenings of fun, so all of their parents could go out on a date or just have the evening without children. Two of the girls that were a part of those babysitting days and neighborhood fun are a part of this post. What a delight for me to watch and see the children that I spent so much time with as young 'uns, now grown into wonderful, godly young women who are being blessed with the Father's goodness in their lives. This wedding was for my dear sister friend, Maggie. Her maid of honor flew up from the south to support and stand by Maggie on her big day. Her maid of honor was only 2 when I last remember babysitting her and her siblings. Such a fun time to reminisce about how old everyone was. Smiles.
So, back to the wedding. The location was absolutely gorgeous! A big, red barn tucked back down a long driveway amongst a quiet woods was the event spot. The style, craftsmanship, and design was so beautiful and unique to most even centers. I don't want to say too much more before I just let you scroll the pictures. I will say the ceremony was small, with just a handful of us, those who sang, officiated the ceremony, and close family. Then the bride and groom did pictures and then the reception started with a barn full of guests, cookies, coffee, and dancing. Was quite delightful!
I'll also add that the father of the bride made so many things to give this wedding a special touch. He carved things, built things, and put a whole lot of love into this special day for his daughter.
Two shall become one.
These girls, once little toddlers together, are now so beautiful!
