It’s happy parents all around our family these days. You might recall we just had a wedding. Our first born married the first born of another family and I’ve been holding out on sharing some of the photos.
We’ve not seen the full collection yet but have seen a sneak peek of what’s coming and I thought it about the right size to share. So here goes.
Up first is the Bride and Groom, Connor & Jerilyn.
Next; I had the best seat in the place and got to lead them through the service. First an opening prayer, a short version of their story: early lives, meeting while serving in different churches, both worrying that they were not “enough” for the other, their engagement — all in about 10 minutes.
They both agreed that having Connor reprise the song he wrote for her was a grand idea so there were tears everywhere
Then the rings they had chosen for each other followed by . . .
. . . a post-pronouncement run down the isle through a shower of bubbles.
A quick few after shots were taken and yes, the dogs were honorary ring bearer and flower girl.
The weather was perfect, so yes, lets get a shot from in the meadow, another kiss and let’s spread out the dress.
The coast was very close by, so right afterwards, the new couple escaped for a few beach photos including one sunset with the ocean behind them.
