Oh, what a beautiful day it was!
Yes, the spring weather was beautiful. Warm, sunny, low humidity. The best you can ask for in the Mid-Atlantic! But it was also a beautiful day of excitement, rejoicing, and love! A day to bring glory to our Lord for His beautiful plan!
I have decided to divide the wedding day photos among several posts. I promised you photos, but here are so many wonderful pictures and beautiful moments, it seemed overwhelming to do it all at once.
Wedding photos were taken by our dear friend, Frances. She has taken many photos for our family through the years (you can see some ~here~ and ~here~ and ~here~ and ~here~). About the wedding photos, Frances made this remark, " . . . when you are photographing people you love, it is very easy to see the moments through the lens of your heart." These photos were truly a gift from her heart and we couldn't be more pleased or more grateful!
After weeks of planning and organizing and meetings and tending to seemingly endless details, on Wedding Day, Kati was surprisingly calm. Last minute tasks had been delegated to generous friends and family, allowing us to revel in the joy of the day!
After our hair and make-up session at the salon, we had planned a simple lunch of bite-sized morsels (cheese cubes, small crackers, grapes) . . . so that our freshly made up lips would not be smudged. Kristin had brought a variety of drinks and (also thinking of our lips) straws for sipping. My sister brought coffees.
The bridal party gathered at our house to get ready for the big event!
Our house was full of wedding garments . . .
. . . and hair styling . . .
. . . and family . . .
. . . and love.
Frances took the ladies outside for a few sweet "before" pictures.
"In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job."
(I think that Ron might feel a little like Job. ♥ )
Then we came back inside to wait until it was time to drive over to the church.
