Wedding Photos

December 29, 2010

Several have asked about wedding photos so here are a few. The weather cleared up and the sun broke through just as the wedding ceremony was about to start. It was a beautiful wedding and a day to remember.  The rain has returned and we saw Molly in the box last night standing at the door.

    Nice to see the weather cooperated too, lovely.

  41. PegRod Says:

    Simply beautiful!

    The simplicity and beauty made me think of “Simple Gifts” and I share this nice link that also made me think of how Ashley might have been as a little girl growing up, so beautiful up to her wedding day, where her father gave her away, shared the wedding day father/daughter dance, and then was so beautifully photographed in “The Kiss” in wedding day bliss and magic with now husband Spencer – Thank you Royal Family and Carlos for sharing all this ((((love and hugs))))!

    (Simple Gifts – Yo-Yo Ma and Alison Krauss)

    • PegRod Says:

      PS – When I look at the photo in the Simple Gifts video at 2:06, the expression on the beautiful young girl’s face looks just like Ashley’s in the photo above of “Father and Bride Dance” – amazing.

    Congratulations to all!

  57. Sparrow in indy from SPO Says:

    I loved the pictures!!!!! They were perfect! Of course! I wonder who took them? Remember, (I speak from experience),Marriage takes work. Really! Give and take,(though giving is far better.) Resolve all issues, never let the sun go down on your anger, admit it when your wrong, say your sorry…let it go. Keep a “Date” night! Even after babies come! Happy mom and dad make for happy kids! Don’t give up, even when it seems impossible to go on!Watch out for curve balls… And don’t worry about the kids seeing you kiss and hug; seeing mom and dad happy makes for happy kids….and shows them what LOVE Really IS!!!!!!!!SSSOOOOOOO Happy for you both!!!!!! Sincerely, Bonny and Allen (after 19 1/2 years of marriage (two, for me.)
