I mentioned in the last blog about my son’s upcoming wedding, so I thought I’d better share some pictures this time around. I’ll admit, back in May when Kait and JP took us out to the ranch where they intended to wed, I didn’t quite get the vision. This is what I saw.
Kait said she’d ride a horse from the trees over there, around the pond over to the oak tree, and the wedding would continue from there. JP said they’d rent a big tent and place it over to the right of the ancient oak for the reception.
I looked. I squinted, trying to see their vision. Well, all of my doubts got blown away last Saturday when every single beautiful detail, including clear but nippy weather, fell into place.
Let’s start with the pictures from the rehearsal dinner Friday night and move on to some pre wedding shots, then the vows and the reception.
Me just about ready to leave the hotel
J.P. waiting for the bride, and yes, the groom wore boots (does that sound like a romance book title or what? LOL). Proud Mom and Pop waiting in the nippy afternoon for the festivities to begin.
The Bride making her gorgeous entrance to the sound of haunting Celtic violins. So, so beautiful.
The vows and kiss.
The fun begins!
The music and dancing were great, and the Mother-Son dance was the most I got to talk to my son all day! The tent was cozy and warm, and the food was excellent southern style. Yum!
The happy couple tried to keep costs down and Kait worked like a fiend on every little detail, and together they pulled off their magical night without going into horrible debt. Now they save for a real honeymoon. Fingers crossed it will happen next year.
I hope you enjoyed the photos of the big day! All I can say was it was magical. So remember, when you’re squinting and trying to see someone else’s vision, have faith all will work out.
Until next time, make it a great one!
