About my pretty flowers

Someone complimented the flowers at the top of my blog. They are cropped from a photo that I took of my daughter's wedding bouquet. I can't believe it's already been more than a's almost 2 since the big day!! We held the wedding and reception here at our home. Yep. You heard it right. Crazy huh? Well, when we first started looking at places and I heard how much they charge, just to use their garden, it dawned on me that this would be a way to get my house and yard spiffed up! And it worked!! And WE worked! We had a new deck put in, I'll post photos of that work of art! We fixed up all around the house, inside and out.

This is my husband and me with our precious princess....the Bride!

I love this photo. Our Nephew Sean took it. It was a beautiful day. This is the same spot that my husband and I got married. Of course, it wasn't so elaborate. Heck, we just got all dressed up and walked up there. Our friends and family all stood to watch. Things have certainly changed!

Another great photo by Sean. I just love this one. It looks so romantic. I still get teary.

The First Dance. My son Jesse took this photo. They were dancing on the new deck. If you like weddings and want to see more, I spent forever and a day creating a slideshow of the many photos that were taken by many people. I invite you to watch it if you like. Go to
My member name is isastephanie. If you want to watch the slide show you will have to download the player first, it will give you directions for this. I loved using this program. I can go back to the wedding anytime I want to!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. What a lovely wedding, Stephanie!!!

    Check out all the events going on on our blog and our friends'...sign up for a few if you'd like...we'd love to have you. (Listed in the right-hand column of our blog)


  2. Hi Stephanie! Oh your daughter looks so beautiful.(you look pretty too!) How special that she chose the same place as her parents to get married. I think it is far more romantic and special to have a ceremony at a special place with meaning rather than the every day route a lot of people take. Smart too to spend the money where you will have something to show for it and enjoy for years to come! Every time you sit on your deck you'll see her dancing!!! (I'm gonna cry soon!lol) My daughter I hope has a few more years before marriage but I know it comes quickly! Best Wishes and Congratulations to the newlyweds! Have a great weekend - Jeannette

  7. Hi Stephanie...Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I just returned from a niece's wedding...They had a moment of silence for those that were no longer with us (My Dad, who passed away in November was among those)...I didn't see it coming, and cried my eyes out!...Other than that, the wedding was lots of fun...Your daughter's wedding photos are so lovely...You live in such a beautiful place!...Take care, Katie
