Sorry for my history-nerdiness (usually I leave that to my husband, Nathan, who LOVES history), but I couldn't resist capturing the fascinating information contained in this church! This document, which was found in the church sanctuary, gives the birth and death dates of the church's founding members. Check it out...1775 and 1777!! WOAH!
Original stained glass
Here are a couple of Kris's "old, new, borrowed, and blue. " Her something old were the handkerchiefs which were from her grandmother. Her something new was her gorgeous dress. :-) Her something borrowed were these gloves from her sweet friend Sally. I cry every time I think about this sweet gesture because Sally is a true friend...she loaned Kris these gloves since she could not be there with her on her wedding day so that she could "hold her hand" through the day. Isn't that one of the sweetest things you've ever heard?!?!?! Finally, her something blue was her garder which her grandmother hand-made.
Here is Kris's bouquet. It was so perfect! It was precious and petit just like her!
Here she is with her Mom and Dad. Grandma and Grandpa are so sweet! Yeah for new grandparents!!!!
The happy couple

Yummy wedding and birthday cake (You may not remember, but it was my Dad's birthday as well as their wedding day!) What a great birthday gift! Here is another picture that I thought was so sweet. You can see mother and daughter holding hands so sweetly there in the middle of the picture. I am so thankful for the people in this picture. Family is such a blessing!
And...last, but certainly not least...more new family. These are my new cousins! I haven't met them yet, but Kris loves them dearly, so we do as well. This is Megan, Katie, Joey, Zach, and Tyler.
We love you Dad and Kris! We are so thankful for you both and were blessed to share in your day! I can't wait for you to get to Arkansas!!!!
