We traveled south about two hours through the Hill Country of Texas and saw a spectacular display of God's beauty with all the wonderful wildflowers! Pictures cannot capture the beauty!!
We were so blessed to be able to stay in a restored 1900 Farm House on the resort where the wedding was held. Mike and I shared the house with our two oldest daughters and their husbands and it was wonderful!
If you want to see more wonderful professional photos of this beautiful resort go here.
It was a new experience for me being the "mother of the groom", but I was so blessed this weekend. My oldest daughter and her husband were indispensable in the assistance for the rehearsal dinner! They helped make arrangements and then helped decorate. It was a wonderful evening, at a wonderful place, with a wonderful view of the river, with absolutely wonderful people!! Then all the kids made "un-decorating" a breeze!! Then our kids played chauffeur to us the rest of the weekend and drove us where ever we needed to be! Boy I was pampered!
I made my son's favorite chocolate cake for the event and since have found out that many friends and family call it their favorite now!
The beautiful Bride to be and her father!
The grandmother of the bride, my youngest daughter, Mollie, my second daughter, Mandie and her husband, Bobby!
This beautiful hankie was a gift to me from Lyn and it reads:
"Doniene, thank you for raising the man of my dreams. Lyn April 7, 2012"
You got it! The tears started rolling Friday night and pretty much went on all weekend! Now you see why I think my DIL is so very special!
The last photo for today is of Mike's boutonniere and my corsage. They are so beautiful!
I will post a few pictures of the actual wedding when I get them! Until then, Blessings to Ya'll!!!!
