A Celebration

Hello, Dear Ones! I thought I would stop with all of my Falling around and share with you the great celebration we had last weekend. We drove to Maryland to attend the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. Precious' sister and her hubby's renewal of vows at their church.
 They attend a beautiful little church. Now my sister-in-law, Kathy (affectionately called Sissa), worked very hard to make this day very memorable. It was such a beautiful day. Shh...the ceremony is about to begin.
 We're all ready to be cued in for our entrances.
The soloist as she sang 'Ave Maria'. She had the most beautiful voice.
 The Priest, Bob, my brother-in-law, his best man and his three sons as the groomsmen.
Here come the bridesmaids...Sheridan.
 Mimi and she made all of the cupcakes, cookies and the wedding cake.
 The matron of honor, Kathy, Bob's sister.
 Very special to have two little ring bearers, Adrian who is the grandson of Sissa and Bob and then Lucas the grandson of Kathy, the matron of honor.
Just to show you the ring bearer pillows. They were prettier in person and I made them. You know how talented I am.
Then the most beautiful little flower girl in the world - my little Carter. You know how important it is to hold your mouth just so and then you can hold the flower basket perfectly! :) I have to brag on her sweet little dress as I made it and it turned out so pretty. She was so proud of herself.
 This photo was from a phone and isn't as clear but I wanted to show you her 'wedding hair'. We put it up in a french twist and added a flower.
 My little darling. How I love her.
 Mr. Precious was very proud to walk his sister down the aisle. Now I hope she won't shoot me but I have to brag on her. You would never believe how old/young she is. She is 75! Can you believe it? She is just beautiful and looked so pretty in her famous wedding dress.
A kiss on the cheek and the renewal of vows begun.
 The renewed couple!
 There was a little reception in the church. Look at those beautiful cupcakes.
 A little snap with our little Campie.
 The bride's maid, Mimi, on the left made the goodies. 
Now this is so very exciting. Do you see the lovely lady on the right? Well, she has been reading my blog for years and years and I finally got to meet her! This was so special and when we were talking she said, "There's Mr. Precious!" So Carol if you're reading this - HI!!!!
 Our daughter, Angela and Carter. We didn't get one picture of our son-in-law. Campie started cutting up so much he was taken back to the hotel. I guess little boys will be little 3 year old boys.
Then it was on to the restaurant for a nice time of introductions and stories...not to mention - food!
Mr. Precious was the emcee with the mostest!

 The ladies of the bridal party.
The guys of the wedding party.
 The most beautiful little flower girl in the world. Carter told her mother before she was called up, "When Bubba introduces me, everyone will know my name!" Yes, she calls her grandfather Bubba!
 Introducing the handsome little ring bearers. These little guys hit it off and had a great time.
 Here are two of the sons from the renewed ones. The one on the left is giving the toast to his mom and dad.
 Cutting the beautiful cake. Look at Sissa's tiara! When she came out with it on Carter ran up to her and I think she thought Sissa would give it to her! You know girls and jewels!
 At the end we were entertained by the renewed grooms cousin.
 Renewed love.
One more snap as we left the restaurant. What a beautiful day and we're so proud of Sissa and Bob and getting to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with them.

  16. How sweet, you all looked so good, lovely bridesmaids dresses little Carter's dress was very pretty, you sure can sew. Your little Campie is getting handsomer all the time. The couple looked so happy. Beautiful church, didn't look that big from the outside photo.

  17. Shelia,
    What a beautiful renewal ceremony, dear friend!
    The first photo of the three of you. . ."Mr. Precious",
    Little Carter and You is adorable!
    Thank you for sharing this lovely day in your life!

  18. Wow that was so sweet! I love the little church they renewed their vows in and everyone looked so pretty. That was so sweet of Mr. Precious walking his sister down the aisle! Carter is such a darling and her dress was precious! Poor little camp probably ran out of patience for all of it! I still remember my grandparents doing this in the late 60's. My grandmother made her dress in a satin gold with a gold lace jacket similar to how yours were for your bridesmaid outfits. Your sister in-law looks wonderful and so does her husband. Looks like it was all fun!

  19. Oh my gosh, I remember my grandparents 50th anniversary in 1968 too! How beautiful is the church, gowns and cakes! What a testimony of marriage and family coming together to celebrate the renewing of the Golden vows for the couple:).
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful occasion, Kathleen in Az

  32. Hi Shelia, what a special time for the happy couple celebrating 50 years together. They are a lovely couple. How gorgeous you look in that beautiful dress. Your hubby is very dapper in his tux and you two also make such a handsome couple. Little Carter is a doll in the dress you made. Your talents are amazing and everything you touch turns to gorgeous. Love all the pics you shared and had to smile when you said your grandson had to be taken out!! Typically little boy. How pretty your daughter is. Just like her pretty mother!! Thanks for sharing this special time. Blessing. xo

  33. What a beautiful celebration. I'm so glad you and your hubby and Carter could be part of it. The church has such character. I loved seeing it all.
