Then I decorated it by covering the benches as best I could with white table cloths. We placed a round table in the middle with a table cloth over it and a small square coffee table sized table just underneath the round table. The groom's father helped us secure this structure and build the cupcake stands for us too. Aren't they cool? Then I added flowers and greenery all around to create an outdoorsy kind of feel.
This next photo is just another view with my friend Bev loading up the stands and wood slices with cupcakes. What do you think?
My Mom made this awesome book for the happy couple. My Mom is the artistic one in our family. In fact, she was an art major in college and does so many amazing things. So, when she does these things we are always amazed. Below is the book she made...
And the blank pages she put in the book for guests to sign.
Then these photos are a few taken from the reception.
This was the letters on the stage of the couple's last name.
This is the groom with a few of his buddies.
The view from one side of the cultural hall
One of the 10 tables. Each one was different.
We have more photos and I'll share those later. We received a letter from our missionary last week before the wedding that I need to share. Here's that letter.
This week was awesome!!! Conference was great we had some people who have been show up to the church for a few sessions and we work with them, which was excellent. We had an amazing miracle last Friday.
We were going to a lesson with one of our progressing investigators Jxxxxx who is 16. When we got to his house his sister answered the door and told us Jxxxxx was in the shower so we told her
we would be back in a little bit. We decided to do some Tracting in
the area. Oh yeah and we were also with a priest in the ward. We
knocked on several doors with no answer but then we saw this guy just
sitting on some stairs leading up to his door we talked to him about
the Book of Mormon and the restoration and it went pretty good. Then
we asked if we could say a prayer with him before we left, he said
yes. I asked him if there was a specific thing he needed to have us
pray about. He broke out crying and told us about all these terrible
things he had going on at the moment and just completely opened up to
us. We said a prayer and told him we were going to come back to visit
him and he said of course. We always talk about how missionaries are
not here to be a persons friend but instead are here to teach the
gospel, but I think that when we're doing our job right people see us
as that true friend.
Well anyways hopefully everything made sense in that story. Hope
all of you are doing well. Byeeeeeeee.
