Happy 4th Anniversary ~ Daniel and Autumn

  

{Reposted}

The day dawned bright and beautiful as the Linder and Hunt families prepared to unite their children in marriage.  Family and friends traveled many miles to attend and be a part of the ceremony that would join two lives in covenantal marriage – thus establishing and bringing into existence a new home in the earth.

A beautiful summer morning gave way to this special day.  Only a few sprinkles threatened and eventually the clouds gave way to the sun shining brightly upon this special event about to take place.  The tables were prepared, the lawn so beautifully mown (with special care by the bride :-)), the chairs strategically placed, and the lovely gazebo brought in to serve as a backdrop for the ceremony.

All is ready

Although not visible in this photo, leading the way was my father who was to perform the ceremony, then Autumn’s pastor who offered up a prayer for this momentous occasion, followed by Daniel and his men (brother and cousins).

We, the bride’s attendants, made our way down the long aisle from the back door of the Linder home to where we joined those already in place.

He must have a glimpse of her!  His face is telling.

 What a beautiful shot this is, as Autumn and her father (Michael Linder) now make their way down the long aisle that began at their back door, leading through the back yard to the absolutely gorgeous back field where an anxious bridegroom awaits his beloved.

Here comes the bride

 Together, at last, a radiant bride and a beaming bridegroom.

 The guests were supplied with bubbles to envelope the couple in as they made their way back up the aisle.

Cutting the cake

 Passages from I Corinthians, James, and Proverbs adorned the wedding cake.

The cake had scripture written on each layer

 The marriage supper was indeed a feast!  The ladies from the Linder family’s church there in town worked so diligently to provide such a wonderful spread of delicacies.

There was a wealth of food for everyone

  1. Thank you, Modeline! It seems to be a picture issue…when I try to add pictures to a post the entire post will not appear???? I copied / reposted this and it worked but I am not sure why the regular posts are not!
