While these two love-birds were smiling/kissing/looking at one another…
the wedding party was having fun passing the time by 
jammin’ with Joel on the ukulele and singing! That boy can PLAY!

The location for the reception was beautiful!

Everyone ate a delicious meal of Smoked BBQ pork sandwiches!

Caleb(best man) and Anna (maid of honor) started off the speeches and then several of the wedding party and some family and friends also spoke and shared stories.

Instead of the traditional “bride throws the bouquet”
thing and all the single girls awkwardly get out there to try and catch it… : ) 
they made up a big bouquet out of the extra flowers and presented it to the
couple who had been married the longest…

That was the last we saw of them for three weeks…their honeymoon destination was the beautiful mountains and cabins of Colorado!

Mr. Ferraro gave a charge to John-Clay – But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called. Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit ye like men, be strong. And wield the shield of faith and the sword of the spirit with the honor due the princess you are about to receive and the King whom ye serve. And may He say unto you one day, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Here’s pictures from the start of the big day! I’m going to let the
pictures do most of the talking…so enjoy!

Maggie had fun doodling till everyone else showed up to get ready.

They used an old heirloom Bible to hold the rings…It was really cool! And…old.
i-7Q39PGP-X3

Once everyone got to the Church, there was a whole lot of make up, curling irons, bobby pins, last minute ironing…etc.

J-C and Sarah decided to wait till the ceremony to see each other…

…and because the guys were just down the hall getting ready there was always a bunch of guarding the halls and doors making sure they didn’t see
each other  :)

Instead of having cake, Dustin and Hannah had the fabulous idea of having an ice-cream bar and root-beer floats. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

The whole wedding was just amazing! It was a very good day with precious memories we will treasure forever! Dustin and Hannah’s goal was for Christ to be glorified and I definitely believe that He was.

…to be continued… =) until then, I’ll leave you with these verses. Be encouraged and look to Jesus!

“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.” Ps. 62:5-6
