I love attending weddings. So when Jesse invited me to his best friend’s wedding in El Paso, I thought it was a pretty big deal. I managed to take the time off and get a plane ticket, and we were off.
I had never met Jesse’s best friend before, so this was pretty exciting. The wedding took place in the backyard of the bride’s sister and it was so beautiful and intimate. It was a small wedding, but Jesus’ presence was definitely there. The pastor talked about these two beautiful people becoming one, raising a family together and always being each other’s partners, no matter what.
I didn’t even know these folks and I was crying.
And the weather could not be more perfect. It was scorching hot all day, but once it was time for the ceremony, it cooled down. Thankfully.
Here are some gems from the beautiful shindig:
Super cute and last-minute centerpieces made by the families.
The groom, T., with his (and mine) best man.
The bride’s son and niece walking down the aisle. Two families becoming one!
My honey in charge of the rings.

The best wedding date, ever.
