Saying I DO By the Beautiful Blue

It was a beautiful wedding.
It really was.
The most interesting wedding
I've ever had the pleasure to
take part in.
I was "Just" the Step-Mom
of the bride but we all really
pitched in to make the
wedding happen.

 Here is the bride, happy,
 yet a little nervous...
heading toward the beach.

My Dear Hubs spent most of his
time the day of the wedding making
this "Chuppah" style arbor.
My two step daughters had
chopped down their own
selected pieces of bamboo
and carted it all the way
down to the beach.
(Which was 8 to 9 hours
away from where we live)

There was plenty of good hair
to go around...

Vows were made, rings were exchanged.

 And my Dear Bebe was one
of her flower girls.
She was told to keep the
petals in the basket
while we were waiting...
And ran down the beach
and the aisle without
letting them fly out
mistaking our earlier instruction
for what she was to do
during the wedding!
She stole the show for
She did a great job
because at the
end she was
coached to let the petals fly
and the wind picked them up
and blew right behind
the newly married couple
as they kissed.
It was perfect!

A fantastic day to be married!

  The happy couple
walked off into
the sunset...
And my dear hubs thinks
he made the bamboo
chuppah so well
that it is still standing there
What a wonderful memory we have
of helping this young
couple get their start in life.
Cheers and many blessings
for a lifetime of happiness!
Linking to Pink Saturday,
after all, we are talking
about a blushing bride!

No matter where you get married if you love someone. I think this was a great idea and looks like everything went well.
