This will be an everlasting love...

The only thing I tried to take a picture of during the service was the bride and groom exit.
Emma chose "This Will Be an Everlasting Love" to be played as they walked out.
You know, we always have a romantic comedy on the mind...

So I tried to film it on my phone and completely failed.  
Fortunately Emma's friend Melanie shot the following on her phone and sent it to me.
I love it so much!!!

After the service Zach Caddy went out back with the wedding party to take pictures.

I've been told he accidentally told James to kiss KATIE.

Notice Melinda

Everyone's expressions are priceless.

This is one fine photo.
Emma is looking at her friend Tyrone, I can tell. :o)

Pretty light in the balcony.

More kissing?



One week ago.

Still going strong.

James chose this song by John Legend for their first dance.

Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her oh no
I'll write a song I've thought about it for far too long

But I've never had someone to sing about until I met her

Each day gets better
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody understands me like she

Now that I know what true love means, I just hope she stays with me
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her
She wants to breathe,

She wants to be where the grass is green

She wants to know how love's supposed to be
She wants it better,
I want to let her know she belongs right here with me
She's heard it all but I'll make her see
I'll make her fall, make her believe
I'll promise her that I'll never leave
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her
I just had to write a song about her

Tell her I don't wanna live without her

Tell her I would build my world around her
Deeper and deeper, sweeter and sweeter
I'll never leave her alone
Where do we go, who knows?

But each day gets better, I just can't let her go

Oh no Each kiss gets sweeter I just can't leave her, no

Thank you for sharing this happy time with me.

    Thank you so much for sharing- the photos are just wonderful. Those ones taken in the balcony with the beautiful light, oh my! They look so happy and so connected as a couple. Emma was a stunning bride. So happy for your whole family...and a new little granddaughter as a bonus!

  10. Thank you for sharing these photos with us! These are just beautiful. The girls' pink sparkly shoes are perfect! I laughed out loud at the photographer's mistake which made me think of one of the funniest moments I've ever experienced in a wedding. My daughter's friend and liturgical dance instructor, Sarah, had her wedding officiated by her pastor dad. Rebekah and three other girls danced down the side aisles (outdoor wedding) before the bride and her dad danced down the aisle to Evan Earwicker's Dance With Me. So that was unusual and beautiful. Then during the vows, Sarah's dad called her Rachel which is her younger sister. He didn't catch it at first, but Sarah's face and the laughter that ensued was priceless. Her dad recovered, but barely. ;) I actually have it all on tape and pull it out every now and then to watch it.
