Our dear friends, Annie and Marcus, got married on July 7th. We thought we’d have babies by then and not be able to make it, but it all worked out! Despite some rain right up until time for the ceremony, everything worked out well for a beautiful wedding at Red Rocks Trading Post.

Since there’s no way I’m going to make posts about all of these things, here are some other highlights from 2012. We did move in 2012, but I’ll actually make a post about that!

Here’s a round-up of some fun from Brittney’s wedding in June. It was such a privilege to be the matron of honor. Everything was beautiful, especially Brittney, and besides the intense heat, things pretty much went off without a hitch. We are SO happy for Brittney and Dupree…we just wish they would go for the fellowship in Denver!

While in Nashville, we had the pleasure of attending my old roommate Mandy’s wedding in Gallatin. Mandy spent countless hours making countless items for the wedding. Now I wish I had taken pictures of some of her details! You can check them out on her blog if you want to bask in your own laziness and lack of craftiness…seriously…Mandy is a crafting machine. Here are a few pictures we took on the big day.

Not only because I harvested these on Tuesday:

and these today:

but because it’s our 5th anniversary! That’s right – 5 years ago today, we began our most incredible journey together. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long, but then again it’s hard to believe it’s only been that long. Either way, it’s wonderful. I thank God every day that I found such an amazing best friend and husband. I can’t wait for the next 5!

Last weekend was full of festivities around Mark and Joanna’s wedding. Mark and Joel were friends all through college and lived together for a while, and now they work together. We were so very excited for Mark when he found Joanna!

The wedding was at Parish Presbyterian Church in Franklin, and the reception was at the Cannery Ballroom downtown. Joanna’s family all played for a while at the reception, followed by much (and some very interesting!) dancing by all of us.

Here’s one more picture I stole from Ayesha’s facebook. See more of our pictures at our website. As you can see, it was a lovely wedding! 3067_586258032088_4704297_34890783_6091641_n Peta satelit dunia .

I’m a little late posting, but Justin and Lacy’s lovely wedding was January 10. They were so generous to invite us to the rehearsal dinner, and we had a wonderful time! Unfortunately, this is the only picture we took – the friends at our table.

On Saturday, the ceremony was beautiful. Clearly they have no lack of people who love them, as it was standing room only!

Finally, the reception was perfect. It was a large crowd, so the Country Music Hall of Fame was a great space.

We had a lot of fun dancing, and then we sent them off from freezing Nashville to sunny FL! Here’s a super cute picture of their exit that I stole from someone I don’t know on facebook…

As you can see, it was a bit windy, but I don’t think they noticed! Tenopardgyse . Peta satelit dunia .
