Simply a Perfect Weekend. The wedding of Callen and Houston Holmes!

Where do I begin?
I've been trying to decide what to say and what pictures to post for a while now.
Not having Internet or phone service for the last 5 days I guess was a good thing?
Well, it did keep me off the computer and focused on more important things.

The Wedding.

My goodness.  I have just so many people to thank I don't know where to start.
We had so many friends who helped us from Barbara and Jessica who did ALL the flowers, to another Jessica who lent us her beautiful singing voice, to Connie and Elizabeth who hosted the most beautiful luncheon I've ever attended.
And then all the husbands who lent a hand when they could have been doing more enjoyable things.
Wayne, Bill, Daniel, Jordan,  I mean y'all, I just can't tell you how humbled I am to have the most amazing friends that a girl could ask.

And THEN our friends and family who trekked through miles of back country only to wind up at one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Gorham's Bluff

It's this little known gem hidden up in North Alabama.

Finally, when you look at these beautiful pictures, just know that my oldest daughter Jordan planned this entire wedding for her sister and new brother-in-law from start to finish.
She did the most amazing job without complaining, taking time away from her kids and husband.
And thank you Eric for putting up with all of this for 6 months!!! you rock!

You know usually you send out a certain number of invites expecting about 50% of people to come!
We literally had an 80% turnout!!! Y'all.  We just are so happy so many people came to support and pray over Callen and Houston!
Lets get started!!!  Grab your cuppa joe cause I've got a ton of pics.

It started like this...

now, Gregory and Houston were fraternity brothers before C and H met.  So here starts the "toasts".
Some of the funniest things I've ever heard!

 Friends Brittany and Catherine reading C and H's Facebook messages to each other when they were "thinking" about going out.
 it was hilarious!

 the bonfire after the dinner!

Houston's little brother Hunter put together the most beautiful video!

The Beautiful Bridesmaid's luncheon!

The amazing Lisa Moore worked with me to help me paint this beautiful rendition of the back of Callen!

on to the special event!!!
We had my dress redesigned for Callen!

Callen read her journal all day while being pampered.

We are just so thrilled that Houston is now a part of our family!  We love this guy and his wonderful family to death!!!
Thank you again to everyone involved in our wonderful weekend!

have a great day y'all!
