A SURPRISE BRIDE SHOWED UP FOR OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY

WELCOME TO OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY. I AM SO VERY GLAD YOU COULD DROP BY FOR A VISIT
TODAY AND I HOPE YOU WILL COME BACK. I SO ENJOY FRIENDS DROPPING BY: OLD AND NEW.
PLEASE STOP BY AND TELL OUR BEAUTIFUL HOSTESS, SUSAN, HELLO AT
WHILE THERE VISIT ALL THE PARTICIPANTS LISTED FOR OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY. YOU WILL
BE VERY BLESSED.






ON SATURDAY MY DADDY AND I ATTENDED A WEDDING FOR MY COUSIN, HELD AT THE
HOME OF HIS MOTHER...MY AUNT JEAN. AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE DATE ON THE PICTURES
I DID NOT CHANGE THE DATE ON MY CAMERA...I MUST CONFESS...IT WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT...I JUST
COULD NOT GET IT TO CHANGE DATES SO I JUST HIT OKAY SO I COULD TAKE THE PICTURES.



THIS IS MY AUNT JEAN. I COULD SAY 5,000 THINGS ABOUT HER ALL GOOD. SHE HAS BEEN
A WIFE AND HELP MATE TO MY UNCLE BILLY FOR 60 YEARS, AND IS A RETIRED SCHOOL
TEACHER BUT CONTINUES TO TEACH SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR PRE-TEEN GIRLS. MY
UNCLE BILLY IS 80 YEARS OLD AND IS STILL PASTORING A BAPTIST CHURCH. HE HAS
BEEN A PASTOR FOR OVER 50 YEARS AND IS VERY BOLD IN HIS WITNESS FOR CHRIST.
AUNT JEAN UP UNTIL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE GARDENER
AND CARETAKER OF HER BEAUTIFUL YARD. SHE NOW HAS A GARDENER AND SHE LIMITS HER
GARDENING TO POTS ON THE PATIO. I DID NOT PHOTOGRAPH THE WHOLE YARD IN-
CLUDING HER POOL AS OUR TIME WAS LIMITED WITH THE WEDDING TO BEGIN AT 7:00 PM.
I ALWAYS TOLD AUNT JEAN HER YARD AND PATIO NEEDED TO BE IN BETTER HOMES AND
GARDENS.





THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL IS MADE TO BE A POT SETTER...SHE IS SO VERY PRETTY





I LOVED THIS PICTURE BECAUSE OF THE RUSTIC TEXTURE OF THE BARN AND I DEARLY LOVED
THE PATINA OF THE ROOSTER AND HEN.....SHE SAID THEY NEEDED TO BE PAINTED....I SAID
NO...IT WOULD RUIN THEIR PATINA. I WOULD LOVE TO FIND A LITTLE COUPLE JUST LIKE THEM.
















I HAVE NEVER SEEN A LITTLE PIGLET IN A HAMMOCK BUT HE SURE WAS A CUTIE.

















SHE HAS VERY BEAUTIFUL ROSES OF EVERY COLOR...SO BEAUTIFUL









THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL BIRD NEST WE FOUND LAYING IN HER YARD THAT HAD BEEN
BLOWN OUT OF THE TREE....ALL THE SWEET FEATHERS...IT WAS VERY LONG...SHE TOLD ME
WHAT KIND IT WAS.....AN ORIOLE I THINK












THIS IS ONE OF 2 PATIOS AND SHE JUST PURCHASED THIS BEAUTIFUL LAWN FURNITURE AND
IT IS SO VERY PRETTY













WOW....A BRIDE IN THE YARD....WE SNUCK HER OUT THE FRONT DOOR SO WE COULD TAKE
PICTURES WITHOUT MY COUSIN SEEING HIS BRIDE IN HER GOWN. SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL
GIRL FROM THE PHILIPPINES.












CONGRATULATIONS BEAUTIFUL ELLEN AND MY HANDSOME COUSIN LARRY. MAY YOU ALWAYS
BE SURROUNDED BY THE LOVE OF THE LORD AND EACH OTHER.
OUR TIME HAS COME TO AN END FOR TODAY. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR STOPPING BY.
JENNIFER I AM PRAYING FOR YOU AS YOU AWAIT YOUR LAB RESULTS.
BLESSINGS AND SMILES
HUGS

  14. What a lovely yard, I really liked the little ornaments, they were placed just right, my favorite, the little girl sitting on the bucket. The bride and gown were both beautiful. Sounded like you really enjoyed yourself.

  16. I am so glad you were able to sneak the bride out for some photographs, those are the ones that she will especially cherish I know! What a beauty!

    The garden was the perfect setting for a bride! It does look as good as those featured in magazines. I'm with you, those chickens are aged to a perfect finish & are a perfect touch by the little barn.

    And I spy the cutest "tin man" out of old cans, too! Standing guard over a rosebush, it looks like!

    LOL - I just hit the "back" button when I photograph things, too. It pesters me about the date every time I turn it on! I can't get the date to "stick" so I just ignore it!!! I must be doing soemthing wrong with the camera but I don't care!
