Hey! Anybody remember when I sat on that bench and crocheted the towels for the wedding couple? Well, I finished them and Richard and I attended the wedding this past weekend in the North Georgia mountains and it was beautiful!
We stayed in Hiawassee and Richard took a photo of the view from our room...
Our son, Christopher was in the wedding as one of the groomsmen and he and his girlfriend looked fantastic all dressed up.
I wish I could show you photos of the wedding couple and all the pretty bridesmaids! The wedding was beside a beautiful mountain stream and it was all so lovely and green. The colors that were chosen for the bridesmaids and groomsmen were really perfect for an outdoor wedding. I wish I could show you the bridesmaids dresses. If I tell you that they looked like Grecian goddesses, does that give you an idea of the simple elegance of their gowns?
There are so many things that I want to say about this past weekend, we were very busy and we did a lot!
One quick thing, the music that the couple chose for the...what do you call it, the song that is played after the wedding ceremony is over and everyone is leaving? The song that they chose was from the movie, "UP"...it is called "Married Life". A nice touch, I think.
(I love the clip I found for you here, it is on a classical guitar. Hope you like it too.)
Oh! And as the couple exchanged wedding rings, my eye was caught by the clouds quickly moving across the sky. To my amazement, two of the clouds formed into a cross. (The couple are very strong in their Christian faith and this was remarked upon by the Pastor who performed the ceremony.)
I raised my camera to take a photo but I was unable to get the shot of the cloud. Now, would you have mentioned this to anyone since you had no proof of it? I wondered if I should...but I did anyway, I told the Groom's Mom and Dad, and I was able to tell the Groom also. It was such an amazing thing... I have looked at clouds for years and years and never have seen that certain shape, not ever.
Would you have kept it to yourself? Just wondering...
Remember I prayed for the couple at the Monastery as I finished up the kitchen towels for them, so for me, it was as if God was showing me that he had heard my prayers for this young couple. God bless them!
