About a week after the wedding, I shared iPhone pictures from John and Chelsy’s wedding, along with the story + timeline of the day.
Now, it’s time to share the real pictures! Laura did an excellent job, and her smiling, joyful presence was a huge blessing.
Enjoy a peek into the day.
Amazing the day had arrived for John to become a married man.
Anna and Chelsy
Mary and Chelsy
Chelsy and me
Lots of bridesmaids!
Love this one.
The entire wedding party.
Dad and Mom with the new couple
The time had arrived, and John walked Mom down the aisle.
If you’ll notice, Danny didn’t make it in the group. He ended up coming out with Christopher on stage.My favorite part of the ceremony might just have been when Mr. Bontrager asked my younger siblings to step forward. You see, if it hadn’t been for Dad and Mom’s change of heart regarding children, those lives wouldn’t be here. Including, no wedding for John and Chelsy. A very tender moment.
As you can see, there were so many people to fit into a relatively small space for the reception. But people managed!
I thought the coffee station clever and inviting.
Taco soup for dinner!
Some in the bridal party shared during the reception, and then they opened it up for others.
Those in the kitchen worked hard!
The new couple with Christopher and Anna Marie’s family.
Joseph, Jesse, and a few others braved the cold (as in 0 degrees!) to decorate John’s truck. They did a stunning job.
That inflatable was really grand.
After the send-off, John and Chelsy came back, they did a private family goodbye. Such a special time!
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”

John & Chelsy had a beautiful wedding!
Beautiful. Where did they go on their honeymoon?
Looks like a very Christ centered wedding, beautiful. Chelsy’s ring is very unique, did John design it?
Yes, John designed the ring! He worked hard on the design and incorporated some elements that were important to him. It turned out gorgeous!
Oh I didn’t know we were gonna get to see more pictures! What a pleasant surprise! I love Chelsie’s dress. And how she played John a song on the piano during the wedding. I think I’ll do that when I get married! I love Chelsie’s ring and the bridesmaid dresses and the inflatable in the truck and that picture of John and Chelsie in the snow. OK my comments to long, but I love weddings!
So happy you enjoyed the pictures! Actually, Chelsy accompanied two congregational songs. 🙂 Yes, her ring is gorgeous!
The wedding was simply beautiful. I did watch the live stream! I love barefoot brides!! And the ring entrance was cool, however, Chelsy forgetting her vows was the best!! Love how she is able to laugh at herself! The inflatable was funny too!
So glad you enjoyed it! Yep. Forgetting her vows added quite the little sparkle! 🙂
Loving all the wedding photos!
What a beautiful day to remember.
Sending our love.
