We are back from our trip to CA to celebrate our daughter's wedding, and I just wanted to share some photos of this magical day in our lives! This is a bit picture heavy, but I hope you enjoy each snapshot of this wonderful moment for our family.

Early Set up! 

Making sure the lanterns are straight.

Setting up the centerpieces with old books, old glass bottles and dried lavender! We named each table with a wedding related name!

Another table with my old creamer!

Looking Good!

All ready!

The perfect touch.....A Heart!!!

Believe it or not, this big blue box is actually a VERY LARGE DOG KENNEL! Amazing what fabric and tulle can hide!!!

The perfect back drop for the gift table!!

Heartstrings for the bride and groom!!

Proud Mom and Brother!!

Proud Dad performing the ceremony!!

"I now pronounce you Husband and Wife."

The new Mr. and Mrs.

Sweet Scrabble wedding cake.  These two just LOVE words and books!!

Proud Mom and Gorgeous Daughter Bride!!

We are so happy for you Janelle!!

Leaving for the honeymoon!!

The chariot awaits!!

Hi Julie,
What a lovely wedding day...and the bride and groom make an adorable couple. The centerpieces are so clever...books are always a good idea...anywhere, any reason! Love the big blue gift! Your daughter looks so much like you! You all look so very happy! How wonderful her father presided over the ceremony, that certainly helped make the day very special. Looks like perfect weather as well.
Great pics!

Hi Julie. So wonderful to see all the beautiful wedding pictures. What a cute couple! They look so happy together. I pray they have a long life together with many blessings along the way. I agree with Robyn, you and Janelle do look a lot alike. That last picture of the two of you is the sweetest! Everything looks perfect, right down to the centerpieces. Thanks for sharing. I'll look forward to seeing what you are creating. Big hugs, Lori
