Deborah's Wedding!!!

The actual wedding.  Probably the thing I have the least pictures of.  But it was lovely.  The ceremony was amazing.  Deborah & Stephen's Young Life director Rodney did the ceremony.  He did an excellent job.  He made it evident that their relationship with Christ is why they are together and how their marriage will work.  The bride and groom and their parents served communion to everyone and I loved that. 

The reception was beautiful.  My mom's friend Tanya did a most of the decorating and it turned out amazing.  It was just what Deborah wanted and it was awesome.  I wish I had more pictures, but I'll post a link to the photographer's pictures whenever they are up.

Deborah's Wedding - Race to the Altar

The day of Deborah's wedding a couple of her friends put on a 5k "Race to the Altar".  It's become a tradition when one of them gets married.  It was felt great to get some exercise in on the day of the wedding.  We had brunch afterward and there were awards.  It was a great start to a wonderful day!

Deborah's Wedding Week - Friday

Friday is kind of a blur.  My aunt and great aunt threw a wonderful bridesmaid's luncheon.  Once we got back to the hotel it was time to change clothes and get ready to head to the rehearsal.  We rehearsed and then headed to the dinner.  It was a great day before the wedding.

Deborah's Wedding Week - Thursday

Deborah got married this last weekend and I am so excited to blog all my pictures.  There are a lot.  So I am going to have to break it out a little bit.  We got to Austin Wednesday night really late.  Thursday morning we had brunch and then hit the ground running putting room bags for out of town guests together, working on last minute details, getting pedicures and having dinner with family that lives in Austin. 

 Jeff & NolaAnn (aunt & uncle) stuffing the room bags.

 Lots and lots of bags.
