A Beautiful Wedding: My Nephew Got Married!

It has been a busy last two weeks for us around here at the Fuentes home. One of the things that kept us busy was that my nephew got married. He is the first son to get married on my husband's sister side so it was really exciting to see them tie the knot!



I am really proud of my nephew, he  is a very godly young man and seeks to please the Lord in all that he does. He is such a blessing and it is an encouragement to see the younger generation following the Lord. He was so happy to be marrying the love of his life and I am so glad that he is starting a new chapter and I am praying the Lord blesses them immensely.


 Another nephew of mine carry a "Here come the Bride" sign as he walked down the aisle. I wish that we had taken our camera but we were in a rush to get out the door and no one grabbed it. You know how that can be in a big family that is trying to get somewhere one time! So these are mostly pictures from our phones!



This was the beautiful wedding cake, we were seated pretty much right in front of it and the bridal party. I am a big fan of flowers on cakes. I love roses, peonies, and every other type of flower you can think of.


If you look closely above you will see that the spotlight under the cake stand was a heart shape. After they cut the cake and had the dance you could see it more clearly especially if you look at the top picture in this post.


This was their wedding favor that was put on all the tables for us to take home. They chose a chocolate Hersey's bar wrapped with a picture from their engagement photo shoot.  Below you can see what was written on the back--what a great and simple idea!



"I am my Beloved's and my Beloved is Mine"--Song of Soloman 6:3

Isn't that sweet? Yes, these are definitely the ingredients to a successful marriage! Love, Respect, Honesty, Trust, Loyalty, Faith--all 100%.  I'll take these types of servings any day!



Since I don't usually share many pictures of me on the blog, I thought I would share a few this time around. Here I am above with my oldest son Stephen and Bella (I think she was a little anxious with all the people there).


Here is one of Steve and I. My daughter curled my hair that day so that I would look different, I usually don't wear it down either I usually always have it up in a Lilla Rose clip! I don't really like having hair in my face, can anyone relate?

(Psst--by the way, they are having a special sale for Mother's day that I promise to share at the end of this post. )



These are all my older children sitting at the table waiting for the fun to begin! My husband had the baby so she is not in this one.



Here I am with Joshua and the twins, Josiah, and Christian (yes, I know, they don't look anything alike--but I promise they really are twins!).


The night was tons of fun with lots dancing and catching up with old friends and family. My nephew took his new bride to Hawaii for their honeymoon and we were so glad to share in a small part of it all!



I hope you enjoyed looking at some of pictures!




Oh yes, and I did promise to share the Lilla Rose Mother's Day sale I mentioned above.

Thanks for sharing - I always like seeing pictures of modest Christian weddings. And it's neat to see your picture, too - totally different than I would have pictured you to be, isn't that always the way! :-)

Thank you for sharing. Where can I purchase the wedding favors? The Hershey's chocolate bar is a sweet way to share The Word.
