jk_weddingMy handsome husband conducted the service




Handsome brothers minus one. Andrew, our oldest was stuck in England. His passport is in UK Visa Application Limbo. We missed you sweetheart!!!

Sarah – my beautiful daughter in the center, two of Rinda’s lovely girls and my sweet little niece.


And, because Tonia and Donna and Sue have all been brave enough to post pictures…even though I don’t like to do this…here you go.


My new daughter-in-law, my sweet son, me, my sister and my brother in the background.

    I’m stopping by to thank you for your comment on my blog. These wedding pictures are fantastic! I love them all. What a beautiful family you have!You commented on my Ireland pictures that make up my blog design. Well, unfortunately we don’t live in breathtaking Ireland, don’t I wish, we live in the States. We did get married there though and these pictures were taken by my husband while we were in Ireland for our wedding and honeymoon. You can read more about that and see some of our Irish wedding pictures by going to my <a href="http://overwhelmedwithjoy.blogspot.com/2006/05/happy-3-year-anniversary-to-us.html">May 17th</a> post.Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see you again. And please, freel free to participate in my Five Ingredient Friday recipe exchange next week. I’d love to see some of your cooking favorites!


  4. Thank you everyone for all your kind words and blessings!! The happy coupld are honey-mooning in Paris (a $60 a night hotel – I hope it’s clean…) and other than delayed luggage in Germany for a couple of days (they toured Paris in pajama pants) they are having a wonderful time! And I am still tired but recovering…

    What a lovely wedding, and pictures! I especially love the one of your son and his lovely bride walking down the road, so indicative of this time in their lives together, starting out. Thanks for sharing them, including the one of you. It’s nice to be able to *see* you now. 😉 Your family is so beautiful, and your new daughter in law is blessed to become a part, I’m sure! Congratulations!!blessings~


  6. Oh my–I was struck with how gorgeous your daughter is…and then scrolled down to discover that YOU look just like her! (Or vice versa–you know.) What beautiful photos. The church reminds me of the Baptist church we were married in, with that fabulous old pipe organ and stained glass–how lovely!


  7. Gasp! It’s all so beautiful! How wonderful!

    Thanks Jeannine!! As for good genes – I’ll admit that my hair has a little "help" but his dark hair is entirely natural!! :)Thanks for the hug ampraisingHim. I do have a book – Strangers and Sojourners by Michael D. O’Brien. I read it a long time ago and am looking forward to reading it again.


  12. Jeannine says:

    Thank you so much for posting the pictures! What a beautiful couple! What a beautiful family! I’m so glad it went well. I would have checked earlier but we had company here from far away and I was a good girl and stayed away from the computer for the entire time (a first for me–I usually sneak off and at least check my email). I agree too that it’s so nice to see your face, and you’re beautiful too and you and your husband look so very young–you must have very good genes. 🙂


  13. You are all making me blush… thank you so much for all the lovely comments!! It does this lonesome mom’s heart good. I think I am suffering post wedding letdown…thanks.

But he is seeing John and Kathleen in England for a day – they are honeymooning in Paris.Dianne – everyone says that about my sister and me. Thank you Dawn, Sue and Eija!

I know what you mean though, about matching a face with a blogger – it is nice to be able to do that.So I obliged 🙂
