10 years ago, a shy preteen walked into our church with her parents for the first time.  Over the past decade, our two families have been through a lot together. 

Friday night, she got married and Dan and I got to be the Officiators of the wedding.  So very cool to be a part of that special day. 

Luke (8) and Zoe (6) got to be the Ring Bearer and Flower Girl. And I don't want to embarrass Luke but he was so cute.  A couple of days before the wedding I said something about him being the "Ring Bearer" and he got very upset and I couldn't figure out why.  He said he thought he was supposed to be the "Ring Bear" ... not sure what THAT job is but it made me laugh and realize I need to enunciate better.

I didn't get emotional during the whole thing until I saw Luke walk down the aisle.  He looked so grown up as he headed down that aisle straight to me and I flashed forward to his wedding. 

But what really got me was Zoe ... she was wearing a white wedding dress.  And my oh my!  My heart stopped.  And then Dan made a comment about it too and I had to just tune it all out for a second so I could do my duty of the wedding ceremony. 

Here are a few of our pictures from the wedding.  (Promise to send more when we get the "real" pictures.)
