Once Upon A Time
If I could copy and paste every moment of Chelsea & Derek’s day and place it here. I would.
Because then I could enjoy it a bit more, too!
I don’t remember a lot from the day, but I’m positive Chelsea and Derek are honeymooning it up in Florida with visions of their fairytale wedding still dancing in their heads.
"Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." Psalms 127:1 Praise God from whom all blessings flow. The day dawned, the flowers bloomed, the bride waited on her groom, the families prayed and rejoiced in what God created and intended us to ... the marriage celebration.
God bless you both as you begin to serve Him, together.

Weddings are just way too short. They should start at like 7am in the morning. Can you imagine the awesome shots, straight out of camera, one could capture at that time of day? Think Bridges Of Madison County photography.
Then a lovely, leisurely brunch, including mimosa’s and parisian croissants.
Followed by EVERYONE napping.
After naps, wedding party could wander to 3rd and 4th locations in their horse-drawn carriages, trolly’s and limo’s.
Inspirational ceremony at around 4ish.
Cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvres in early evening, including the speciality dances.
A late candlelight and conversational dinner.
Then the dance floor opens and the crowd goes crazy.
Pizza and/or Cheeseburger sliders at say, midnight.
Last call around 1 or 2am.
It’s all got me thinking now, what it would be like to pull out of the driveway for a wedding. Hmmmmmm.

And they all lived happily ever after.
