So proud of this photo of my beautiful Family!!!
Bonnie planned and we put this wedding together in only a few short weeks.  She had a vision of what she wanted - family-oriented, simple affair with black, white and silver.  She and I did the flowers. Each of her attendants selected their own dresses.  Ansleigh and Trayden looked adorable.  Matt's niece was the Flower Girl and his nephews were ringbearers.  Bonnie's friend, Stacy, did all the photos.  Matt's sister, Ashley, made both cakes.  It was truly a Family Affair!

I want to send out a SPECIAL THANKS to our Friends who went the extra mile and helped with setting up and cleaning up - Kim, Jacqueline, Barbara and John and Bethany!  Ben and Sam, my sweet boys, helped their Sister on her special day with loving hearts - kudos to you, guys!  And, Rudy, you did an awesome ceremony and kept Matt calm. 

Matt and Bonnie, my heart is filled with love and best wishes for you as you begin this new chapter in your lives.  May you always find strength and joy in Christ who guides you - and each other!


  1. What a wonderful wedding it looked to be and the bride and groom, everyone looked beautiful. You, the proud Mom were radiant.

    Thanks for sharing this special day in your family's life.

  2. Love, love the pictures! Stacy did a good job on them. Such a beautiful bride... just like the mother of the bride. I think everyone was fighting back tears with Bonnie's emotional vows exchange - so very sweet! Thank you for letting witness this blessed event!

  3. How absolutely beautiful and so special!!! The pictures are wonderful and they look so happy! You have a gorgeous family there and are looking pretty awesome yourself, Ms. Janie!!!
