Wedding Wonders

Saturday, August 16th, 2008, Carrie became Mrs. Patrik Martinet. Though the day was toasty, the evening wedding was comfortable as the sun went down and the candles were lit. What a whirlwind of activity took place around here! So many friends and family members working together to make Patrik and Carrie’s day just what they wanted it to be. The following pictures capture some of the joy. Most of these photos were taken on an iphone. The “real” pictures are coming soon, but I wanted to share these with you as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day perfect. Friends and family painted fence, put up wedding tents, baked scrumptious cakes, prepared food, toted ice, ironed shirts, put jellybeans in little bags, arranged flowers and made corsages, planted flowers, ran errands, helped with hair and makeup, took the dogs to the kennel, and reminded us to enjoy every moment. We are blessed.
