Pastor gossip

Noah & Monica sign their marriage license

Jeff & Samantha got me my favorite book!

Sylvia's daughter Eleanor (and her friend) made the bride & groom crayon drawings of their ceremony as wedding gifts

Me & Kraig

Boo ya kaa! (whatever that means) Jason, Grace, and Kraig

Me, Jase, Sean

Grace & Bonnie (she was SUCH a trooper!)

Our late-night private party (our Night Cap, if you will)
There's stuff missing, of course, but this party took four pages to show, and FOR CHRIST'S SAKE PEOPLE you got FOUR PAGES for a party.

Oh, and can I just say? Less than 6 hours before the party, the full week of rain stopped, then less than 16 hours after the party ended, it started raining again.
Thank you Baby Jesus.
