A beautiful rustic wedding is on the blog today! Full of cowboy hats and boots, with lots of dreamy light and two extra special people to be celebrating! My brother in law and his new wife! This wedding is extra special as it marks the gaining of a new sister for me! The added bonus - my new niece and nephew, Kelsey and Kaden! Seriously, hearing "Aunt Brooke" for the first time was amazing! OK, obviously, this wedding is not all about me. It is however one of many amazing blessings for my family. We are so overjoyed to have Aubrey and her babies in our lives. I have always shared a close relationship with my brother in law, and I love her to pieces for making him so happy, for challenging him, and mostly for completing him. Ryan is a better man for having Aubrey in his life, and I know that he will treasure her for how precious she is to him. A lot of prayers have been prayed by my in laws for the women that would one day marry their sons. I'd like to think that now, all those prayers have come full circle. With Aubrey and Ryan's wedding, our little core family is complete, and I know that our amazing extended family feels the same way too! We love big around here. Shew, okay enough tears, on to the goods.
Aubrey and Ryan's ceremony was held at Mid City Christian Center in Bonita Springs Florida where my brother in law is one of the teachers for the new satellite college. Directly following, the reception was held at Koreshan State Park and Historic Site. Lots of fabulous rustic details were abound from mason jars and burlap to South Florida lending it's own dose of Southern charm with dreamy light and Spanish Moss covered trees. Guests dined on barbeque and had their fill of sweet tea. Surrounded by their closest friends and family the couple danced the night away, even under a few falling stars.
Please enjoy this extra special post and gallery, and another big CONGRATULATIONS to my awesome brother in law and new sister in law!!! LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH!
Quick shout out to my amazing Second Shooter - Steph Jones. If not for her, I would have been an absolute mess at this wedding! I love you so much girly! My Wedding P.I.C.!
