My Niece's Wedding

I finally got some photos back from my niece Misty's wedding last September.  It was a glorious event and I'm go glad Sterling and I were able to attend.  Mark and Misty are the couple that went on the year long journey last year touring the U.S. and then flying over to New Zealand, Thailand, India and several other countries before heading back home.  They went only with what they could "carry" and travel with. They are true minimalists and toured these countries with only essentials they carried in their backpacks.  Mark is a prolific writer and documented their entire journey, along with photos.  If you are interested in reading about their experiences (which were amazing to say the least), go here:  http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/mistyandmark/1/1272521126/tpod.html. You will see a bar midway on the page that you can click that says "trip start" and "trip end" and if you click anywhere on the bar it will show the location map and take you to that day's entry. 

Anyway, back to this post.  Here are a few photos from their wedding, which took place on a working farm up in Minnesota (near Rochester). The first photo is of my daughter, son-in-law and grandson. LOVE the chickens following them around. Jonas had a blast chasing after them. The next three photos are of the wedding couple ... don't they just ooze romance and commitment??!!  And Misty brought her wedding dress all the way back from India.  She was such a beautiful bride!  The last photo is a family pic of those of us from Nebraska that were able to attend this wonderful celebration.

Hi Ann thank you for visiting my blog and making such lovely comments! As you can see I took you up on your offer to stroll in your blog and loved it!
Love all the food in between your beautiful projects and I checked out the Hero Arts vid to see about layering stamping:) It's lovely to look at all your family photos, not something I think to do on mine and that photo of Ireland looks like my husband Jim's home in Wicklow. I managed to snare him before he returned home and we live in London
