United

This was the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended. The simplicity of it made it elegant & beautiful. The natural elements they incorporated in every detail stood out and made a statement.




Tori was a beautiful maid of honor

Here comes the bride...I got so emotional...Natalie is like my 3rd daughter. I looked up at Tori at this moment and I could tell she was holding back tears.



Man & Wife


Can you see the bird nest on the brides bouquet? These bouquets were amazing and they smelled so good! Can you see the love on Nat & Luke's faces!!? Pure love.

Stunning!

Meg & I waiting for the wedding to start. It was a beautiful day, around 85, they had fans on all the chairs for the guests.
Meg & her girlfriend, Hillary. After the wedding these two headed north east on a road trip (they are in New York today).

Tori & I...I can't believe she is still in those heels.

My girls....all grown up....in their friends weddings!!



Natalie & Luke got everyone to dance....Nat had been dancing with her husband and then grabbed Tori and started dancing with her. I got choked up again watching these two giggle and dance.

Memories of them younger running through the house....the laughter that came from Tori's room at 3 am.....the stories the two of them would tell John & I after a forensics tournament or a trip to the lake. Now the memory of Natalie & Luke united...Tori being apart of the wedding...

Although Natalie is now a married woman, and her attention is now on her husband, I know she will always be there for Tori and their friendship will never dissipate. She married a man who loves Tori as much as she does!

To the Love Birds~ I wish you both a happy, healthy, prosperous marriage that is Christ centered. God knew what he was doing when he matched you two up. May you be blessed throughout this new journey.

I saw these pictures on your Facebook page, but I love reading the story that goes along with them so much better!

What a beautiful wedding! I know this moment will happen before I know it with Isabel and her friends. I keep trying to put the brakes on, digging in my heels as time just marches on.

*sigh*
