I’m still daydreaming, remembering my beautiful sister and her stunning wedding! We returned home late last night, and while the unpacking needs to continue and we still have to get ourselves in order, I spent time looking through pictures this morning…

I have no idea how I’ll sort through all of them and properly blog about it, but these are a few of my favorites… I JUST CAN’T STOP SMILING.

When there is a lovely wedding, it is a beautiful thing.
When there is a lovely wedding with the Spirit of Jesus flowing out of every single aspect, it is impacting and joy explodes!

I am so proud of them, of the Jesus they radiate.
They wanted to show a picture of Christ returning for His pure, beautiful bride, and that is exactly what was shown.
It was evident not only in the beautifulness of the wedding, but in the spirit that both of them had even in preparation.

Here are a few teaser pictures from the rainbow wedding, the boho-chic, rain-day, Jesus-glorifying wedding! :)

    Your website is so inspiring! I am a friend of Mary and Ruth and found your blog through them. I have 2 daughters, Rachel – 16 and Kaitlyn – 13, they are beautiful inside and out. I am so inspired because of wedding pictures most of all. I love how all 4 of you and your sisters had beautiful, creative, fun, yet modest weddings. My girls love looking at your pictures and feeling validated in their clothing choices, and choosing to be modest. Thank you!

      It WAS the most unique wedding ever ~ it was SO SO FUN!! I only have a few hundred more pictures. Ha! My camera was like another appendage that day, and my brother shot the few bridal party pictures. It was my last sister to be married, and I wanted lots of pictures! :)

      Awww, you are so sweet to think of us! It was a huge change of plans – the entire wedding was rearranged – but it turned out so very beautifully!

      And, I’ve been trying to comment on your latest post for some time and it will not let me comment! Not sure what’s wrong with my account, but I LOVED it! xoxo

    i really like their funky style together. thanks for the eye candy- loved looking even though i don’t know them. ha

      I think I may agree with you, even though I’m prejudiced and she’s my sister – but she was absolutely stunning! And yes, funky style is so right. The groomsman outfits were the best! And the décor was so funky and fun.
