Family Wedding at RiverMist

Family weddings are the just sweetest. There is so much excitement when young children are involved in a wedding ceremony. And what a wonderful way for Natasha and Jason to start their married life.
Natasha is accompanied by her lovely flower girls.
Holding hands. A perfect start.
We included the Ceremony of the Red Thread for Jason and Natasha's wedding.
According to this legend, at birth the gods tie an invisible silken red thread around the ankles of a man and a woman destined to be husband and wife. As the years pass, the thread grows shorter and shorter, until finally they are united. 
The red cord was tied around their ring fingers as Jason and Natasha made their vows.
 The cord was removed.
And replaced with a wedding ring encircled with red band.
Natasha and Jason made special promises to their children.
The girls received a necklace, a symbolic reminder of the promises made.
 Family Circle.
It's true.... One Big Happy Family.
More kissing, oh no!!
Jason is a lucky man. Three women to love.
No doubt who is the favorite.
 And always will be.

A Destiny of Souls - Virginia and Todd Are Married

Destiny is a mysterious thing. No matter what you do or where you go, you can’t avoid it. And, no matter how hard you try, even putting forth your greatest effort, you can’t force it to happen before its time. Virginia and Todd's wedding was a celebration of the destiny of two souls.
My Love--Linda Lee Elrod
When I met you, I had no idea how much my life was about to be changed..
but then, how could I have known?

A love like ours happens once in a lifetime.
You were a miracle to me,
the one who was everything I had ever dreamed of,
the one I thought existed only in my imagination.

And when you came into my life,
I realized that what I had always thought was happiness
 couldn't compare to the joy loving you brought me.

You are a part of everything I think and do and feel,
and with you by my side, I believe that anything is possible.
(this day) gives me a chance to thank you for the miracle of you...
you are, and always will be, the love of my life.
 Almighty God, bless these rings, symbols of faithfulness and unbroken love. May Todd and Virginia always be true to each other, may they be one in heart and mind, may they be united in love forever.  
One quick photo with the newlyweds.
Many happy times ahead for the new Mr. and Mrs.
