Javier and Evangeline's Wedding

This past weekend we attended the beautiful and God-honoring wedding of Javier and Evangeline.

The front of the church

A radiant bride

The had candle light lanterns along the whole aisle

Bride and Groom

Instead of having all bridemaids, she had the "five wise virgins" who held lamps (with oil)--as in the parable Jesus taught of the five wise virgins.

The reception hall, so beautifully decorated and very Christmassy (sp?).

Lighted trees behind the buffet table

Emily and her friend Annie Kate

The "groom's cake"--a three-layer cake that was moist, rich with caramel in between with chocolate frosting and drizzled with caramel. Delectable!

Bride and groom hands

They are the sweetest and most fun couple, laughing heartily with their guests.

When Evangeline went to visit some friends (and ended up meeting Javier) she learned how to contra dance (line dancing). Ever since then she's loved it and definitely wanted it at her wedding. Everybody was more than happy to oblige.

Evangeline and her Dad.

Carter and I. Sorry it's blurry but it was a dark room. This is one line of people, and there was awhole other line dancing next to us. Almost everyone in the room danced. Definitely had my 30 minutes of cardio!
