a picture's worth a million words...

or is it a million pictures are worth....oh forget it!

The wedding was absolutely beautiful. I couldn't decide which pictures to post, since I have over 400 pictures and I like so many of them. I decided to choose a few of my favorites from the church and post them tonight. Tomorrow I will post the reception and party pictures (FYI: There might have been alcohol involved at the reception. If so, I am now apologizing for any pictures that may look like we were having just a little too much fun!). Enjoy!

Tito and Gloria, may God always be the center of your marriage and may you be blessed abundantly for a lifetime. We love you both so very much!

Getting ready to leave to church. I just love AJ's little face here! By the way, my sweet Kai had a temp of almost 102 in this picture.

This is my favorite of all the pics! I am truly, truly blessed and give God all the glory for pouring down upon me such an amazing 'Bouquet of Blessings'.

Your family is SO beautiful!

You need to get a couple baseball bats and maybe a loaded gun! You're gonna need it for the guys that are going to be chasing your Amanda. She's gorgeous!

And Anna-Grace's shoes are adorable! Where did you ever find those?

I hope all the people in your family are blessed with healing soon! I'll keep them in my prayers!

Oh my oh my oh my - what a beautiful family - lots of love - lots of joy - yeah just a whole big bunch of Blessings going on there! Couldn't be happier for you guys - and as for an adult beverage - what was Christ's first miracle again....and wasn't it an exceptional vintage? I'll have to give you 'my spin' on that story sometime!

hugs - aus and co.

Ohilda, the pictures are all beautiful. We love having a son-in-love and a daughter-in-love....they are just such wonderful blessings to our family...

I have to say, I think my favorite shot captured is AJ looking at AnnaGrace....his little feet are on top of each other and the look is just like he absolutely adores AnnaGrace - I think it could win a contest!

They are all beautiful and Kai - what a trooper with a fever - poor little guy!!

Hugs from Colorado!

OK, your son is absolutely beaming!!!! What a smile on that boy's face, Ohilda. It is precious. I am curious to hear what you were feeling as your baby boy was now becoming someone's husband. I often wonder what will be going through my head.
