4th of July Weekend Wedding

One of my aunts is a teacher. At her school, there was a precious Kindergarten teacher. She once commented to a friend and co-worker that she wished her son (one of my older cousins) would meet a girl like that Kindergarten teacher; a kind, beautiful girl who loves Jesus. Sure enough, soon after they met at a party, our family was attending their wedding. Don’t you love that? Never underestimate the power of a praying mother. 🙂

The wedding took place on 4th of July weekend. I won’t share photos of the bridal party on the wedding day, but will definitely share the location and some of the sweet details of the weekend.

First, some of the women relatives met the bride and her friends as they prepared the cupcakes for the reception. They made these sweet treats themselves. Isn’t that just impressive? I thought the fresh raspberries were a super sweet touch.

IMG_3327I’ll claim this gorgeous sunset as a sign of great things to come for the couple. 🙂IMG_3324Even the family dog sported his American Pride…IMG_3318And Momma, the dog lover, approved! IMG_3406A gorgeous bridge with a picturesque bridge at the wedding site the next evening. IMG_3421IMG_3407The guests all crossed this bridge to watch the two say “I do.”IMG_3411The beautiful backdrop of the ceremony. I can still picture the bride and groom here. Is there anything sweeter than a wedding, y’all?
