Matthew & Rosetta's Wedding

On the last weekend in April, Matthew and Rosetta pledged themselves to each other for the rest of their lives.  God gave a gift of perfect springtime weather and the whole day was a beautiful celebration!  I couldn’t stop smiling!  I love weddings and they’re even better when you’re getting a new sister-in-law in the deal. J  (Matthew is my Little-Brother-in-Law.)

The whole day showed their style and personalities with a casual, fun atmosphere, and rustic country beauty.  Their were lots of gorgeous flowers done by Tim Lehigh, the groom's father. 


After all the excitement of getting ready was finished, Matt and Rosy had a special moment planned when he would see his lovely bride in her gown for the first time.  They had chosen a weathered barn in a field near the bride’s home.  Watching her walk through the field to her man was beautiful scene!

We took photos of the couple in fields and woods and then met the wedding party and headed for a little rundown town nearby for some shots of the whole group.
Once again, my photography “assistant” was Mandy, and I really don’t give her enough credit.  She gets some great shots, but more than that, she keeps my marbles from rolling away and the screws of my brain tightened in the craziness of wedding photos!  She’s awesome!  We have a great time together.

This 1971 Plymouth Duster belonged to Matt’s dad.  It’s still in the family -now my husband Nathan owns it. (Nathan is that handsome best man. J)

During the ceremony Mandy took over with help from a friend, Beth.  I enjoyed the vows with the rest of the family!

The reception was a picnic with plenty of delicious food and guests sitting on hay bales.  There were hamburgers and hotdogs right off the grill with all the fixin’s, homemade buns, potato salad, baked beans and kettle cooked chips.

The bride donned her Brady jersey to pose with her uncle for a quick snapshot to demonstrate their great football rivalry!

You’d probably die laughing too if your brother put on his glasses, and the band randomly started singing
 “Why do you love me?
Why do you need me?
Always and forever”
with the perfect imitation of Kip.  You have to be a fan of Napoleon Dynamite or at least be familiar with it to really appreciate this. J

Our little family.

There were no bubbles, rice or flower petals thrown at the bride and groom.  How about Cap’n Crunch for some fun?!
Some of the wedding party had put colorful paper hearts in the stacks of Matthew’s truck.  It made a great show when the couple left the reception!

God bless you Matthew and Rosy!  I’m glad He has brought you together and that you’re part of my life!
