This wedding of our youngest daughter, adds another link to the chain that is our family. Marriage is the foundation of family ... and I cannot help but think about the weddings and the families that came together to make THIS wedding possible.
John Harvey Carothers and Celinda Elizabeth (Lizzie) Armstrong
Wedding Day, 1903
(Our daughter will have my Great Grandmother's wedding ring tied to her bouquet, as her 'something old')
Fannie Viola Carothers and Garland Aubrey Floyd
The Husband's Parents
My own wedding.
I have many of photos of wedding preparations so far, and I expect to take many more in the next few days. There is so much happening, and so much to record, and I want to share it all.
We have what looks like a circus tent in our pasture, where the reception will take place.
The pavilion under the pecan tree will be the most beautiful ceremony site.
There are buckets and buckets of flowers sitting on the deck waiting to become arrangements later today.
Don't let me forget to show you the ring-bearer pillows I made.
... and, of course, there's the DRESS!!
This wedding brings together our daughter and a wonderful young man ... and it has brought our entire family together to celebrate ... and celebrate it, we shall.
