A Country Style Wedding Reception

Howdy friends!

How about some reception pics from Julia and Alex's wedding day?

I still don't have time to write much, but I at least wanted to upload some of the beauty...

Meat from Four Rivers barbecue, sides by two of the ladies of Metro Life (coleslaw not shown)

The pie buffet
Reception on the patio in front of the church
- this was the first time anyone had one out there,
but I'm guessing it's not the last!
They also turned the drive lane into a dance floor for country music,
but I don't have a picture of that right now.

Lanterns and leaves
Beautiful sunset to cap it off!

Send them off with a sparkle!
The perfect ending to a country style wedding reception!

A big thank you to my friend Donna Gotschall for many of these pictures, as well as to Bethany Walti for the last one!

Just a Few Wedding Pictures!

Julia puts the ring on Alex as Pastor Danny Jones looks on
Dear friends,

My daughter Julia and the love-of-her-life Alex got married yesterday and the wedding was so lovely.   Sigh!  I wish I had time to write more about it, but that will have to wait a bit.  I do want to share a few pictures I took yesterday, while I anticipate getting a lot more pictures from my mom and others.

The happy couple is presented at the reception.

All ten of my children were in the wedding: the bride (of course!), matron of honor, bridesmaids, junior bridesmaid, groomsman, junior groomsman, ring bearer and flower girl.  There were actually 25 people in the bridal party, not including the bride and groom!

Here is our new family picture, which also includes both of my sons-in-law and my grandson.  Oh, and another grandson "on the way" since my oldest daughter is expecting in February!  Thank you, Tonya, for this lovely photo!

We are so happy for Alex and Julia.  This has been a long time coming! I think they met about nine years ago at church and have been good friends for about seven years. Julia mentioned in her vows that she had started writing a list of things she liked about Alex five years ago when she was 17 and he was 19.  I understand that about the same time, he was carving her initials on a tree near Boone, North Carolina.  They'll get to see it on their honeymoon this week.   :-)

I'll write more later.
