The Giessen Wedding
Who knew...Bella goes bonkers for horses. I thought that huge head would freak her out, but it only created a level of elation that we've rarely seen in her. The squeal she shrieked over the farmland was incredible, and it's so much fun to see a little human experience something for the first time. An awesome experience.
Speaking of awesome. Casey and Sara's wedding was one for the history books.

The setting: a wonderfully warm summer afternoon. The skies: a baby blue canvas bubbling with orange cumulus clouds. The weather: precarious, with flickers of lightning and a rain-cooled breeze teasing the event. The couple: radiant.
This wedding was cool. Really cool. Located on the Hanks family farm, a field was cleared between horses and goats for the wedding. Who else would create hand-crafted pallet walls with antique windows, an old fireplace and mantle, and of course, a formal chandelier presiding over the ceremony? A unique, beautiful wedding to match a uniquely beautiful couple. God's blessings on the newest Giessen's. Here are some highlights:
