Window into a Wedding

Aged brick pathways
through overgrown hedges.
James Monroe greets you at the end.
We are, after all, at his farm.

An enormous welcoming gazebo
all set for a reception--
twinkle lights, twigs, tulle
and trees everywhere.

flowers in bottles hanging from the rafters

a romantic lover's nook

and this view.
oh my.
A gorgeous setting for such an important event.
The exchanging of the most sacred promises:
for better for worse
for richer for poorer
in sickness and in health
till death do we part.

Beautiful pictures. I know that weddings are difficult for you. And I admire your courage as you attend the weddings of your friends.
I love you Karen and I'm thinking of you and praying for you.

That is one of the most beautiful wedding settings I've ever seen! It's gracious and humble and elegant, all at once. Thank you for letting us "crash" and see the beauty through your eyes.
