Destiny's Wedding 5-4-2017

Family began arriving for Destiny and Michael's wedding late Monday night (5-1). Dad and Barbara arrived in town about 10:30PM. Wayne and Kelley about 2AM.

We had lunch together at the house Tuesday. I love this picture of Dad with Kennedy.

I didn't get a lot of pictures as I still wasn't functioning 100%.

The wedding was Thursday, May 4th at the Lonestar Mansion in Burleson. It is a beautiful place!

They aren't turned on yet but you may notice something purple in the left corner of this photo.

Destiny is a Stars Wars fan. And the theme of the wedding had Stars Wars throughout. This is a light saber and they were used for decoration.

Now the next couple of pictures make me choke up!

The wedding party came outside for some pictures and we got a few minutes with Addison.

It was a little bit of an ordeal as there were several buttons and loops!

I took a short video of the photography using a drone to get a group shot of the wedding party. I hadn't seen that done before! You can see that here.

It was a little chilly with the wind so Vanessa borrowed the light jacket I brought.

The wedding cake (not traditional) was made by Whitney.

  1. Beautiful wedding! Love the bride's dress!

  2. Very nice photos! What a beautiful couple! I loved the cake.
    For some reason this didn't show up in my E-mails so went directly to your blog today after talking to Nancy.

    1. Thank you! Yes they are! I'm not sure why it didn't show up in your email. Probably just a fluke deal!
