Wedding Bells

It's been a while since I've had a chance to get on to my Blog.  What a time it's been.

My youngest, Ross and his fiancée, Kerryn, decided that six years was way past time enough to get to know each other.  So, with 22 days to go to the anniversary of the day they met, they dropped the pleasure bomb on us.

The two families worked together to make it a most spectacular day.  I opened up my home; catering was provided by members of both families; décor was decided on by Kerryn and Edith, her Mom and all hands pitched in to make it work.  A lot of fun all around.

As you can see from the stark garden, July is still mid-winter so there was much prayer for decent weather.  We had a glorious day and the next day the temperatures plummeted down into the low teens (celsius).  Thank you, Lord for the perfect weather!
Waiting, waiting, waiting...
