A Rustic, Vintage, Whimsical Wedding

Our son-in-law's only sister was married this past weekend.
They didn't plan it but their timing of the date was
September 10, 2011
 As Joanna stood with her dad, her bother Jeremiah, who pastors in Brasil, spoke on Ephesians.
Jeremy's grandfather was involved in the Giving in Marriage.
 Joanna & Jeremy

Our daughter, Jamie was the matron-of-honor (seen on the far left)
John wouldn't miss a father~daughter dance with his sweet Jamie (expecting baby #6)
This wedding was so special to us on so many levels.
Sitting in the packed church, my heart overflowed as I looked around and saw so many dear church friends of so many years.
Our friends, with their children, now young adults that I knew since they were toddlers and kids.
All grown and beginning families of their own.
Let me show you the amazing reception and introduce you to the sweetheart behind it all.
All of the following photos belong to
Tracey Lynne
Rustic, Vintage, with a touch of Whimsy
That is what the bride hoped for.
That is what Tracey created with beautiful attention to every detail!

Yes, all of this and so much more (photos on Tracey's site). 
Not only is Tracey fun loving, adorable, talented, creative and decorator extraordinaire
she is also a mom of four precious little boys!
Go visit Tracey's place.
You're gonna love her!

Oh, this wedding looks like it was
as much fun as my son's last month!
I love unique weddings that offer
something different in the way of
presentation and decor. This was
great. Your daughter looks beautiful.

What a lovely wedding and such a delightful rustic reception. I love the direction to more "natural/rustic" receptions now days. You daughter is expecting her 6th! Bless her heart. Such a lovely picture of your husband and your daughter. I will have to pop over and visit Tracey Lynn. She sure did an amazing job with the reception. Have a lovely week. Thank you for your sweet comments on our grandson. I don't know why I put his full name all the time, lol. I think it is because "GEORGE" seems such a formal name for such an adorable little boy of 4. When he was young his mom and our family called him Georgie. When he turned 3 he dad objected. You know, Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie.....apparently his dad had to endure that as a child. So I guess Grammie is saying....."this little guy is carrying on the family name so we cannot call him anything else" lol. Again, blessings.

What a "cute" wedding... looks like something from "Country Living" magazine.
I wish them good luck, marriage isn't always easy!

Always enjoy photos you take at weddings. This one reminds me of the one I went to in Vermont last month, rustic elegance and warmth. Happy wishes to the beautiful young couple!

podso said...

wow it looks amazing! And, I might add, nice to see a couple have their ceremony in a church. Seems to be a trend away from that right now.

What a wonderful wedding. I know what you mean...sometimes when I am at something like that and look around at the folks I love and feel all the love and friendship in the room I could just start crying. It makes for a very emotional ceremony, doesn't it? I love the picture of John dancing with your daughter-that is what life is all about, isn't it? She looks just radiant! xo Diana
