Colorado Wedding


The wedding was lovely! We managed to get adequately dressed up, Kelli looked beautiful with her sweet baby bump, and the clouds drifted in the sky with hospitable covering, so we didn't melt. I rode down to Colorado Springs with Jeff, Kelli and Bryan. It was fun to be with "the kids" and Grandpa graciously stayed back at our house with Birdie and Bug.

A railroad magnate built this castle for his family and now it is the headquarters for The Navigators. Isn't it amazing?

Do you see April under the tree? She and Brad played the processional on violin and classical guitar. Brad was also a groomsman.

We sat in the back row with Aria. She slept in her car seat.

After the ceremony, the happy bride and groom walked through the green grass.


The dinner was pretty and Bryan and Kelli, Jeff, Brad and April, and Aria and I all sat together.







The red rocks make a miraculous backdrop.

A flower girl enjoys her cake.

And the happy couple smiles.

Oh, I pray that they begin and end each day in humility, realizing how small we are and how BIG God is. I pray they would try to out serve each other, count it a privilege to honor one another, and snuggle in bed every night, appreciating the blessing of partnership.

Sweet family memories. You all look so happy and joyful. You and Kelli look so pretty in your go-to-meetin' clothes.

Did I see "Jack in the Beanstalk" on the table? Can you tell us more?

Lovely smiling faces, beautiful couple, what a wonderful day! I remember when we met our pastor to plan our wedding, his advice (and it was the only advice we got!) was 'never go to sleep on an argument' - solid advice and I think we have always tried to keep to it.

Good Morning...I found you via your comment on magsmcc's blog. I love Colorado and have place in Breckenridge. Where in Colorado are you? Great pictures!

Pom Pom said...

Hi Mary!
We're in Denver. Yes, Colorado is FULL of loveliness. Breckenridge is a fantastic place all year long, isn't it?
Jody, the wedding had a story book theme, thus the books on the tables. The party favors were frogs wearing crowns - book marks! It was cute!

Oh my goodness, Pom Pom...... I needed to read these wise words today. How beautiful! I want to remember them forever.... oh how I forget. "Oh, I pray that they begin and end each day in humility, realizing how small we are and how BIG God is. I pray they would try to out serve each other, count it a privilege to honor one another, and snuggle in bed every night, appreciating the blessing of partnership."
You're beautiful (inside & out)! What a blessing. Thank you.
