We had a blast at Josh and Ann's wedding!
Everything went so smoothly and all of the planning paid off (grateful).
Here is a list of some of my 'grateful' moments from the weekend.
-Everyone experienced safe travel (We had family and friends coming from ALL over for this wedding. Josh's best man, Peter and his wife Sarah, experienced a tired blow out in IA and we're thankful they made it safe and sound.)
-The weather was gorgeous all weekend. We were able to do outdoor pictures on Saturday like Ann wanted!
-The photographer was SO kind, flexible, easy-going and pleasant to be around. Seriously - if you have been around the opposite kind of photographer you know how annoying they can be ... Joe was fabulous and really added to the whole day with his personality!
-The actual ceremony really was a testimony to God's faithfulness and love in both Ann and Josh's lives. My Dad did a great job and I think everyone was touched by how personal his 'charge' to them as a couple was ... so special!
-E-man was able to get a good nap thanks to Josh and Ann being flexible with when E showed up for pictures and Angela watching him while the rest of the family was doing pictures.
-E-man made it down the aisle, running, winging the ring-bearer pillow around, did a little jump and roar at the end of the aisle, ran to the guy who was bringing him to the nursery and clapped for himself - so in turn - everyone clapped for him - it was so funny and he did great in his tuxedo.
-We had so many special friends from PA and family members travel long distances to support our family. It was really fun to see them all and celebrate with them. I think they all enjoyed watching
E-man dance the night away :) ...
All in all, this past weekend was so fun and we are so happy for Josh and Ann Ridder! :)
