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.)
