An Event of a Lifetime

I like it when an email comes in from Shutterfly saying “your memories from this week last year…” Looking back usually evokes many joyful emotions and I am reminded of God’s blessings in my life. Physical reminders of God’s faithfulness in the past can remind us to trust Him now and in the future. The photos from my daughter’s wedding recently arrived. I am going to savor the moment now and in years to come.

The Elegant Nature Wedding

I’m not surprised my daughter’s priority was to get married outside in a beautiful nature setting. We eventual chose scenic Spanish Hills Country Club for the site of the wedding and reception.

Unique Floral Designs took expert care with the florals and helping to interpret our vision.

Each member of the bridal party shined!  I’m proud of these wonderful young adults. The bridesmaids were pleased that they were able to select their own individual style gown from the same Mulberry color palette at Azazie.

Party Time

One of the best things we did was to add an extra hour to the reception time. It gave people time to dance and relish the moment. Our DJ, Nicholas Whitzler – Impressions San Diego, was a marvelous MC and he kept the hits coming! Another good idea was purchasing flip flops at the Dollar Store, so the ladies could kick off their heels. We had a box full and they were all used.

The wedding cake from Viktor Benes Bakery received many compliments. We went with the strawberry cream filling. Delicious!

 

 

 

With all our loved ones around us, the evening couldn’t have been any better.

It is a wondrous time for our family, we recently celebrated my daughter, Lindsay’s wedding shower and now the BIG day is here.

It almost seems like yesterday when my daughter was born. A magical day filled with expectation and hope for my healthy baby girl’s future. Lindsay was strong from the start. On Lindsay’s first day, when her dad watched her in the hospital nursery, he was astonished when she did a push up, lifted herself up with straight arms and looked around the room.

To this day Lindsay has a great outlook and perspective. Her positive, ‘can do’ attitude helped her land the Senior Global Brand Manager position at Lionsgate Entertainment, home entertainment division. And now she has recently been promoted to that position at 21st Century Fox.

I am proud to say that My daughter has grown into a strong, beautiful, intelligent and kind woman who has gracefully come into her own. And she has found the perfect partner along the way.

When I see Ben & Lindsay together, my heart is filled with contentment and joy knowing she has found a loving partner she will share her life with. They are perfect for one another And I cannot thank God enough that they were able to find each other.

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” – Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

I am not losing a daughter, I’m gaining a son tomorrow!! May they have a long, happy and healthy life!

With Gratitude, Linda
