I found myself crying. Steven Curtis Chapman’s Cinderella was playing and I’m driving to the first wedding of the season. “Ok, get it together.” But when it was time for the father-daughter dance, the same song came on. And I teared up something fierce.
The wind was blowing and the clouds were dancing around the sun. Amanda and Jake picked a BEAUTIFUL day to tie the knot. Even though I had met Amanda at a previous bride’s wedding, I didn’t really know the couple. But the amazing thing about weddings is you see people’s personality come out in so many ways. Amanda was so calm. I mean, the girl memorized her vows. [I could hardly repeat mine.] Amanda and her bridesmaids made their own bouquets. Um. That is just awesome, as you can see below. And another thing: Jake and Amanda are so in love. They just make you smile. I was smiling all the way home and as I downloaded the images. Chad said, “I love seeing you’re face as you work.” It was them. Their love. I hope you have a peaceful time in the North Carolina mountains, you two!
Love the fist-pound…
Did I mention it was REALLY windy? And here are those cute girls with their bouquets they made themselves!
At this point, I’m thanking the wind.
