Wedding!

The darling couple, Jasmine and Wes McElhany...
My cousin David's son, Wes, got married yesterday! Wes is Aunt Helen Ruth's* oldest grandchild. He just got his master's degree in architecture at Texas Tech and his bride just got her degree, also. They both have good jobs and will live in Lubbock. They were married at the Grace Evangelical Free Church in Lucas (just east of Allen). It was a beautiful ceremony. The one solo piece they had sung was the one solo piece we had sung at our wedding 31 years ago by Aunt Helen Ruth - "Great is Thy Faithfulness". That was amazing. (Oh, a friend of Wes and Jasmine's sang it yesterday. It was beautiful.)

Here's the wedding from my vantage point...
The reception was wonderful...

Here are Steve's wife, Lori, (yes, the Carmacks have a 'Steve and Lorie', also), cousin Carol and her husband Dale...
Here are beauties, Sydney (Brian's daughter) and Bethany (Steve's daughter)...
And you know these people...

*Aunt Helen Ruth will always be Aunt Helen Ruth to me. Most people know her by just 'Helen'... but those aren't the ones who really know her.
(She's my dad's little sister, and only sibling.)

I can't believe I didn't get a picture of her yesterday.

How fun -- what a beautiful couple. Much happiness and good wishes to them... It's been too long since I've been to a wedding.
