Tim Junior's wedding



Last Friday we had the honour of being invited to a wedding.
We've known the groom his whole life and his parents Tim and Flo have been our very dear friends since they married shortly after we did.


Their sweet grandchildren led the procession.


From my seat at the back...
I snapped a few unprofessional photos but you can see how beautiful it all was.


They poured their unity sand..
and created a unique design.


Alissa was a beautiful bride and her dress was lovely on her.


I have always admired Flo's mom in law.
She is as sweet as they come.
Still always with a smile and a cheerful greeting.


We chatted after the ceremony for a long time with friends we don't see often anymore.
Weddings are so special for the parents.
It is not often we have the chance to properly celebrate our adult children with our friends.



The flower-girl left her basket for us to admire after the ceremony.



We also enjoyed having a visit with Charlotte who is the now famous face of Lepp Farm Market where Mennonite Girls do our cooking classes.
(coming up again December 4th..stay tuned for our Christmas Class)


Charlotte and Flo became walking partners when Tim and Flo moved to the farm next to Rob and Charlotte.
They already knew each other from high school and have since shared the lives of their children growing up and I'm sure have solved many of the world's problems during their weekly walks.



Tim's grandparents.
Such a blessing to their family.



The reception was at Whonnock Lake Community Centre.
It was such a beautiful setting and I loved seeing some of our friends walking down towards the water.
They didn't realize how picturesque they were.


and..
I passed my camera to a friend.





Tim and Flo..
you raised a very fine and handsome son.
We are so happy for him and for you and pray that they will be blessed as they begin their life as man and wife.

  2. It looks like the young couple had a perfect day. Your 'unprofessional' photos are beautiful. You will soon be in demand as a wedding photographer!
    I will be in Abbotsford on Dec 4th so will try my hardest to get on the list for that class. What fun!

  12. Lovely photos, Lovella!!! I'm so sorry I didn't 'officially' meet you at the wedding, because I was RIGHT there, but didn't know who you were. :( I know my sister Marge talked to you.(I'm Flo's oldest sis)
    But it was such a blessing for me to be able to be there for Tim's wedding. Family is a great blessing.

  14. In lovely fashion, you captured this wedding so that I almost felt a part of it. The colors, the flowers, and the location made it look like pages from a magazine. You are right, weddings do have a way of bringing friends and family together, and we always leave them feeling like we caught up with everyone. What a memorable occasion for all of you! Love the picture of you two by the lake!
