Joseph and Elissa Maxwell: Wedding Pictures Part 1

Saturday, September 6th was finally here. It was a day my brother and almost-sister-in-law had been counting down to. Yes, it was wedding day! It was a day that promised to bring much excitement.

By 8:45 am, most of the bridal party was at the church. As we arrived, the flower lady stopped in, and wow, did the flowers look gorgeous. We girls went to our getting-ready room and unloaded our dresses, bags, and hair stuff. Our hair stylist was there and ready to begin Elissa’s hair. Meanwhile, Mary and Elissa’s sisters started on their own hair. Anna and I, while waiting for our hair to be styled, enjoyed talking and observing the fun.

Our girls’ room became busier as all the nieces and nephews joined us and sisters-in-law too.

Joseph and Elissa had figured out a wedding day schedule, and that really helped things flow smoothly. Here you see Joshua, who had just opened his ring-bearer gift. It looks like Ruthie’s entertaining herself there.




My brother looked so handsome–what an awesome groom!

After groom formals, they did the guys’ formals. The farm next door gave permission for pictures there, which was perfect.

Here you have, left to right, Jesse, Joseph, John, Elissa’s brother, and Nathan. Christopher was technically a groomsman, but he took pictures that day.

we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

  1. At the risk of sounding superficial and frivolous, you have a very good-looking family! I love looking at the pictures of the different generations and seeing the family resemblance. You can really see how the genetics play out from each parent in the siblings and even the grandkids. Isn’t it amazing?!? That being said, I know that what is on the inside and love for God is so much more important that physical beauty. The bride and groom are so lovely and appear to be enjoying each other and their special day.

    Family resemblance is pretty amazing!

  2. Congratulation and best wishes to the newly wedded couple.
    Looking forward to hear how the love-story came true.

  3. Joseph, you are such a kind young man. You deserve all the happiness in the world. Love the leaping pic.
