Heather and Ben Tied the Knot!

Its Wednesday and I am very excited cause I have something very exciting to share with you all today. Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/. Let's all step into her blog and see what fantastic outdoor pictures she is sharing with us and then check out all the other participants' posts.

As I have said, we just came from FL. to visit the kids but most importantly, to attend my stepdaughter's wedding. It was an outdoor ceremony and the setting was gorgeous! It was held in a Bed and Breakfast Inn called Town Manor in Auburndale, FL. And we had a wonderful brunch afterwards. I will share the indoors later for Pink Saturday.
This is really a beautiful setting so please feel free to click to enlarge.

2 of our grandkids, AJ (my side) and Noah (John's side)

Another grandkid, Zoe, who was the flower girl. She was so funny because she dumped all the flowers from her basket at the beginning of the aisle and then sprinted all the way to the front and fell. Luckily she landed on soft grass so she did not get hurt.
It was very simple but elegant. The bride, John's youngest daughter, was beautiful. The one on her right is her sister, John's oldest. He only has 2 kids, both girls, as you can see.
Can you guess who these are? :-)
and that's me with my daughter, Rochelle.
The newly married couple were taken for a short ride in an antique convertible.
and there they go!
Thank you so much for sharing this lovely time with us. I hope you enjoyed the pictures

Christine, I was less than 15 miles from you last weekend! I was in Central Florida for a baptism! Can you believe it? That is a gorgeous setting and such a pretty wedding. Nice setting on the lake. I'm not familiar with that B&B, but I am going to have to check it out. I'm so glad things went well. Loved seeing all the lovely pictures.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

Christina...what a wonderful day! I love the pic of Zoe...it almost looks like a painting the way the light is playing across the bricks. I truly thought it was a painting at first! The bride is beautiful and the groom quite handsome...what a lovely couple! Happy Outdoor Wednesday! Susan
