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.
The flower girls arrive and set up shop!
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.
After groom formals, they did the guys’ formals. The farm next door gave permission for pictures there, which was perfect.
“This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
