Wedding Weekend

And so...with two weddings this weekend, "wedding season" officially comes to an end -- at least for us! We had a very full Saturday, full of love and "I do's"!!

:: Wedding #1: Jamie and Matt -- Jamie used to work at FDLIC with us part-time while she was still in college, and now that she is graduated and her man got a job elsewhere, they have since moved to a different city. We miss her a lot, she was very bubbly and outgoing! It was great to see her marry her sweetheart on Saturday. Her wedding was very traditional/old school, which surprised me. I expected it to be very modern and sassy! The ceremony was held in a Methodist chapel, and they included a song and the unity candle. The vows were traditional. Her dress was beautiful but not what I expected for her either! Her color was Tiffany blue. We sat with three coworkers -- Allison (from my team), her mom Susan, and her friend Bec. We did not attend the reception, since we had to make our way to wedding #2!

Jamie is always laughing -- so I love this one of her giggling during the ceremony!
:: Wedding #2 -- Vanessa and Caleb -- Vanessa is on my team at work; she is one of my very talented graphic designers! She and Caleb have been dating for a few years, and a few of those were spent long distance while he was being a missionary in Africa! So, it was a very happy day to see them finally getting married.

Vanessa is from the Philippines and is quite lovely -- very slim, with gorgeous curly dark hair. Their wedding was modern and she had a lot of beautiful details. They included some Philippine traditions as well, which was neat to see. Their wedding was at a place called The Grove, which is out in the county. The ceremony was outside and the reception was inside/outside there on the same property. They served Philippine finger foods, and had a small cake to cut (and cupcakes for everyone else). She was beautiful in a very simple, elegant dress with a purple sash, and Caleb wore a traditional Philippine white shirt.

Vanessa loves to paint and do hand lettering...she made this Welcome sign that was on the entrance.

The chairs had fans handmade in the Philippines -- they were the favors, with the program attached
The arch where they stood was gorgeous with purple flowers of all different shade,
and little glass globes of different sizes...the sun made them all sparkly! We were requested
to not take any photos during the ceremony, soooo...
Their wedding cake, for cutting

Congratulations to both couples! May God bless their marriages with endless love, friendship, patience and grace!!
