Here Comes the Bride – In a Model T Ford

The guests began to arrive and we began to realize that it was  really hot outside and the chairs were in the sun. I was so busy praying it wouldn’t rain, I didn’t consider heat.

I did pretty well until Tatum walked down the aisle… thank goodness for tissues!

Wedding In 5 Hours. Stressed? Maybe Just A Little…

The day of the wedding finally arrived. Everyone showered and got their clothes ironed. I made the food for the potluck and we headed to Camp Wilkerson to help with set up. Since we were the first to arrive, I picked up the keys, signed in and waited…

I would have liked to have taken more pictures of setting up but we were so busy setting up that we didn’t have time. Everyone worked hard and somehow we got it all done in time! God is good! And we did it all without having to bother the bride too much with questions or decisions. There was even time for everyone to have a bite to eat (including the bride) before picture time. It’s amazing how much you can get done when you have a great crew who are totally willing to help and you just do what you want… ;o)

It’s okay Will, you don’t have to be sad. You’ll still get to see your brother after he’s married…
