This is Kelly posting! I am excited to share this special wedding of my sister and her husband Richard! It has been wonderful to get to see these two get to know each other and get married and their families join together. The ironic thing is that Richard grew up just down the hill from our family. In fact this Thanksgiving, we were looking at old little league photos and saw that he and my brother were on the same little league team. I even babysat for Richard when he was young, and we all rode the same school bus. Fast forward a whole lot of years and Kim and Richard got reacquainted when Kim started attending his church. Their boys enjoyed playing together. Richard’s son Cody is a great big brother to Kim’s boys Jaxon and Kaden.
They had a small wedding and reception in the middle of nowhere with some close family and friends. It was a beautiful place, but I literally do mean in the middle of nowhere at least 10 miles way back on gravel roads in the Goodman Forest. I went out there early to decorate and got lost finding my way back. I passed the same lake twice and a whole lot of deer. I was taking my car on a dirt road with ruts deeper then my Honda has ever seen. I had visions of missing the wedding entirely, but I eventually happily made it out of the forest.
The wedding was a beautiful fall day, and the rain stopped just in time for the ceremony to be outside. The log cabin where the reception took place overlooked this gorgeous river and falls.
