The End of Summer, The End of the Month and Oh So Busy!

The calendar is just about ready to flip over to a new month! August has been a busy month and a happy month. On Saturday, Jimmy and I were invited to celebrate the marriage of Anna and Mike.
Anna is one of Gina's long time friends and everyone was excited about this wedding. The weather was perfect for an outside event at Anna's parent's home along the Sandy River.

Everything was ready to go! The groom and his parents were discussing picture wishes with the photographer. The clock was ticking and it was almost time to begin.

The officiator was decked out in his royal purple attire...all smiles and waiting for the nervous couple.

Our SIL Eric played a special tune as the wedding party was ready. I love this photo of Mike and his parents...everyone is smiling. I love weddings.

All set? Oh no, we had to wait for a jet to fly over! It was really funny. Anna has a fantastic sense of humor and mouthed her vows while we waited for the plane. Such style and class Anna girl!

Time to be serious and exchange vows...very sweet.

 The bride's mother and father.

Let the fun begin!

Gina and her papa. Of course we were all remembering Eric and Gina's wedding~almost two years ago.That's hard to believe!

Have you ever seen a dinosaur wedding cake before? That's Anna...

As Jimmy and I walked back to our car, I looked up at this beautiful canopy of Douglas Fir trees. I had to pause for a moment. As I stood there admiring such beauty, I just had to say a little prayer that God would bless this newly married couple and that He would grant them a very happy marriage.

What a lovely outdoor wedding! I'm glad the weather cooperated for the sweet couple. I have never seen a dinasaur wedding cake before. I have a niece who would love it!
I perused your previous tea post too and enjoyed it so much. I have also read the Mitford series and really enjoyed it! A lovely post, Linda. Thanks for your visit and have a beautiful day.
