A Country Wedding


A wedding day centered on the Lord.....
 
My mama's wedding day. Her wedding was small, but sweet. JUST THE WAY SHE WANTED IT!!! The only planners were us.... the bride and grooms family.... making it an extra special day.... that my mom was not expecting at all!
 
The couple married in the beautiful state of Montana, referred to as God's country by most of its' residents.... The groom built this cross for the bride to be married in front of. This is also where the couple shared their first dance together. (As pictured above) The cross is simple.... perfect for a Godly country wedding!

The entrance to their wedding was this! An old weathered pallet with an arrow pointing toward the aisle and their names and wedding date all made out of red duct tape! This was put together by family members of the bride :)
The aisle was a family affair! We all pitched in to put this together out of old birch tree stumps that were lined up to make the aisle. We then scattered red, white, and pink rose petals everywhere. Some of the stumps had flower arrangements randomly placed on them. These were made of red roses and baby's breath. The flowers were placed inside of mason jars.
 
Instead of carrying a boquet down the aisle, my mom wanted to make it more Christ centered, so she carried her bible and had flowers wrapped around it. It was way more beautiful than a boquet ever would have been! && best of all it showed that her desire going into her new marriage was for it to be Christ centered! The bible is pictured here on top of one of the tree stumps that was used as a seat for the guests. The stumps were covered in burlap sack and tied down with ribbon... (making it a true country wedding)

I HAVE FOUND THE ONE WHOM MY SOUL LOVES.... SONG OF SOLOMON 3:4
 
 
The reception:
The groom, Keith, wrapped lights around the tree trunks... so that the area would be lit up since dinner took place at night. Baloons were hung off of the trees for extra decoration && a JUST MARRIED sign hung above the bride and grooms seats!
 
...and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. Mark 10:8-9

  4. A country wedding,how nice. I just found your website today and I read it and cried. How beautiful that you found your soul mate. I was married for many years but I can't say he was my soul mate. GOD has certainty blessed both of you and I for one am so happy that you found each other and most of all that you both love the LORD and that you have re-directed your life down a different path for his glory. I have never been to Montana but I bet its beautiful there. I moved to Missouri last May and this country has lots of hills, lakes and farmland. A Sunday drive can be breathtaking. I have txtd a few people with your info on your book and also gave them your website to check out, hopefully they will do so. They are both young, one is 21 unmarried and she is a runway model and the other is married and expecting her first in September, and is my adopted niece. I think they will both enjoy your website and see that lives can be turned around with GOD's help. Bless you and keep up the good work. I'm old enough to be your grandma. I have 2 grown daughters and 5 grandkids.
