At 8:30 a.m. on October 14 Honey, the Girls and I loaded into Johnny Cash, travelled an hour to get out of The Mitten, headed across Ohio and went about two inches into Pennsylvania, to attend the wedding put on by our Dear Friends, The Hostlers! Armed with the necessary items to beautify ourselves, including, but not limited to, party clothing, shoes, makeup, jewelry and all of the other ingredients needed to look presentable! Because at 4:00, NURSE LAUREN WAS GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!
Our hotel room about 5 seconds after arrival. Mousey makes her presence known.
Oh yes she does.
We did all the beautifying and loaded back into The Man in Black, which I have to say performed admirably and was most comfortable! It was a beautiful day, perfect for a much anticipated wedding!
We had a little time after arriving so Honey and I worked on our selfie taking, we are getting incrementally better.
Mousey and I were armed with the program and our tissues.
First down the aisle were Rae-Babe’s lovely parents, Pete and Dixie, looking grand in their finery!
Then Rae Babe and Jon-a-fin. Parents of the bride, looking good and holding it together!
Awesome Autumn, living up to her moniker!
And there she is! Nurse Lauren and her Daddy-o, looking beautimous!
Lauren and her William, only God could have arranged their love story! He’s from Minnesota, she’s from Michigan, they met through her vlog, and now they are getting hitched! One of their favorite hash tags was #iloveus, you can’t tell at all 🙂
It was her dream to get married by the same pastor who married her parents in the same church, and she did!
They wrote their own vows and I loved what they said.
The way the pastor clasped their hands spoke to me.
Oh yeah, first married kiss ❤
Mr and Mrs Brown!
This was one of my favorite pictures! Well done!
While the wedding party took their pictures indoors, we took some of our own outdoors. You never want to miss an opportunity when folks are looking all fine and fancy! Love our Girlies!
A proud Honey and his daughters.
Then we welcomed the new married couple to the reception! Another fave!
Awesome Autumn gave a wonderful maid of honor speech! Touching, funny, delightful. As did Jon-a-fin and the groom’s father.
There they are, The DeHostwaeler Girls!!!
There was popcorn, candy and pop in bottles!
We rang the little bells to make them kiss, it worked well!
They had a lot of sweet touches. You were supposed to take a Polaroid and tape it into a scrap book and write words of wisdom. We did that and then took another as a keepsake! They also had a Bible with lined margins that you could underline a favorite verse and write them a little note.
They had a sparkler sendoff!
On their way to Bahamas!
It was a wonderful day and God was at the front and center. Our best wishes, much love and many happy years together for the newlyweds!
