Blessings galore - my son's wedding!

How did my son grow up so fast? - something we parents often ask ourselves. I had a brand new reason to ask myself this question recently as my mind actually flashed back to my son's birth. He's always made me so proud as his mother. At Justin's wedding reception just a little over a week ago, I gave a short toast. One thing I mentioned was that I was not only proud of Justin because he was my son, but because of the human being that he is. I love him so! He chose a beautiful bride to spend the rest of his life with. I'll share just a few photos now and will come back soon to share some more.

With bride and groom and hubby at an informal photo session at a beautiful rustic location chosen for memorable photos (professional photos coming later). Notice the hat! There's a tall feather on it too, but hard to see here. The newlyweds had chosen a 1920's theme for their wedding day. I wore the hat for a while and then took it off since I am not used to wearing one - I could only stand it for just so long!

    The dress was tricky to find and I found the hat at an out-of-state vintage clothing shop.
