wedding day

Jen and Lars
October 2nd 2010

If I pictured a beautiful day for a wedding
this day would have surpassed it.
It had rained so many days before
but on this day the clouds parted and the
angels sang.

I thought long and hard about how I wanted to write this
post but in the end I decided the best way was to let the
pictures speak for themselves.
I have never cried at a wedding before
but I did at this one.
When two people so right for each other
marry it's really a sight to behold.


I also laughed.

I know you join me in wishing them
all the happiness the world
has to offer.

Love to you all!

and love to you too Carole!!
How wonderful these images are... just beautiful memories.. I said it in the last post.. this girl is just stunning and what a gorgeous bride she made... Stunning girl.. stunning dress!!!

did that boy just dump the flower petals..??/ hahaha... never work with children or animals.. Love the the little pumpkins.. and love that shot of the bride walking along holding her dress... must have been a wonderful day!!

The music's not playing at my end... maybe a good thing though as I've noticed blogs with music use up all my downloads... i'm such a party pooper... soon I won't have to worry about all that..

Ok... Lovely wedding Carole.. so glad you enjoyed the day.. the weather looks like it was perfect!!

Hi Carole, you sentimental old thing, you !!!!
What a wonderful day . Jen looked so beautiful and, I'm not just saying this but, I think that her dress is one of the most beautiful that I have seen in a long while ( apart from my daughter-in-law's, of course !!) Our son got married in October and it is such a lovely time for a wedding. I love those little white pumpkins, the setting is perfect and the food looks delicious.
They look so happy ....oh, and I love the compass and the sentiment....what a great idea. Bridesmaids look lovely and the whole day...PERFECT. I do love weddings but haven't been to one for a while.
Your photographs are brilliant and are fond memories of a wonderful day....oh dear, it's got me crying now !!!! XXXX

What a beautiful wedding and the attention to details was over the top Fab U Lous! There's almost too much to comment on...almost! The bubbles, the lovely bride, her dress (adore the skirt on it), the children playing around the skirt, the food...oh my! Both cakes knocked my socks off and that little house...adorable!
I love most of all seeing the love in the new couple's eyes.
Debbie said...

Carole, I have to say that your photos of this beautiful wedding are the best I have ever seen. You captured it all. I love all of the detail they put into it. The kids are adorable. Gorgeous!!!!!!

Blessings to the happy couple. It looks like it was a magical day. I know they will appreciate these shots even if you didn't slither in the grass like the hired photographer. : D

I love the images you captured. You captured the magic.

The compass favors were perfection! ..oh and Paula's birdies! How special are they....

No wonder you were so misty..

That looks like such a special wedding Carole, your photos are gorgeous! I am soooo sentimental that I have to tell you the picture of the groom and his mother brought tears to my eyes, really so sweet. I love the compass idea, really all of it looked so special.

I also want to tell you that I got my Jeanne d' arc today and I can't wait to be able to sit down a get lost in all of the beauty of it! Thank you for the treats as well, that ribbon is gorgeous, can't wait to use it! You are so special, thank you! Theresa xoxo

Thank You Carol,
I am Lars' mother, and as I view these photos I have tears running down my face as I see these precious moments of the happiest day I can remember. The day was filled with emotion from beginning to end.......and many guests were as tearful as I was. Having Jen & Dakota join my small-but-mighty Norwegian a dream come true for Lars, Tova and me. As I look forward to joining Ginny & Joe and our new expanded family.....we will enjoy the times of our lives, as we celebrate the future with such love, hope and joy. My cup runneth over.........Munga Tusen Tuk.......jeanne
