It was the end of January in Illinois and the weekend before
had delivered an ice storm that covered the area.
But what a difference a week can make!
January 21 was beautiful … the rain had cleared away …
no snow … the sun was out … and it was WEDDING DAY.
No one needed a coat!
Jacklynn and Devin had a most amazing ceremony that involved family,
pastors, church members, friends from past and present …
Jacklynn’s dress was made by her grandmother, decorations (including
looooong walls of lighted tulle) were created by family and friends …
and twin brother was home from service in Alaska.
Morning of the ceremony with a wedding start of ‘2’,
Grandpa was in the auditorium building an extra step to the platform,
labor of love for granddaughter.
There may (will) be the brief moments of ‘nerves’ and the last minute unexpected
surprises or hiccups, but a wedding day is also … always … one whole entire day
full of grace and ‘caring’ lavished on one special couple.
I’ll never tire of them:
