I almost don't have words to describe the wonder of this weekend. It was just incredible and my heart is FULL - of love and happiness and gratitude to all the friends and family who helped us put on our daughter's wedding.
Here are a few photos from Saturday, courtesy of my dear friend Bridgette, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to tie up all our loose ends, and my brother in law Dennis, who helped serve food to all our guests.

Communion under the arch.
They did it!!
Our family, (left to right) daughter Lauren, SIL Robert, my man Tom, Meghan, Nathan, me, son Grayson.
Two hundred and fifty chairs were set up in the clearing.
My florist friend, Kim May, decorated everything so beautifully. We forgot to set out pictures of the bride and groom....oh well.
My fancy hors d'oeuvres table: peanuts, M&Ms and pretzel mix. Also on the table are the fixings for s'mores.....and mosquito spray. Aren't those potato sacks cute? I bought them at fabric.com.
The cake! In an old stall....
Cake was made my my sister-in-law Janna.
This is what our entry looked like. We call our place Beulah Ranch......named out of something God spoke to my heart when we first moved here 9 years ago. How fitting it is that Beulah means "married." Isa. 62
Tired and happy....we made it.
I can't wait to post more photos, especially of the barn and reception area. Despite our limited bathrooms and lots of last minute details that got overlooked or went undone, the wedding was just wonderful. It's finally sinking in that it's all over and now we can start to really savor the memories. We were so blessed by the help of friends and family to put it all together.....and we are truly blessed to have a fantastic new son-in-law!
I'm still catching my breath, so I'll start back with daily Small Things as soon as I can. Thanks so much for hanging with me while I've taken a break to focus on this special time!
