Last week, a young man from our church got married in an outdoor, by-the-water ceremony. The bride’s pastor did the ceremony so were able to relax and enjoy the beauty of the day without any responsibilities.
And what a beautiful day it was.
The ceremony was held at a private home in Manteo called Meekins Anchorage. It is over 200 years old.
We enjoyed walking from the street to the house on this anchor-festooned driveway.
As we came around the corner of the house . . .
we saw the Croatan Sound spread out before us.
I loved the seating sign.
Here are the parents of the groom. Jeff is a church Board Member and works for the sheriff’s department; Crystal is on part-time staff at church, working with the children.
The groom sharing a smile with his dad. (Ben is in the Coast Guard.)
Here are a few more photos of the surroundings. (Click on any photo to see it full size.)
Ben and Savanah are moving to Groton, Connecticut almost immediately so there will be many adjustments for them to make as newlyweds in a new state and a new culture. We appreciate Ben’s service to our country and we appreciate the sacrifices Savanah will make, as well.
Our very best to them both.
our family took advantage of the surroundings to nab a few of our own photos.
This is my “standing and pondering” pose.
Sarah eventually rescued me from it.
I love hanging out with this wonderful man o’ mine.
A classic pose with Steve and Sarah.
As we were leaving, we spotted this cool butterfly chair and Sarah couldn’t resist some dramatic poses.
This butterfly girl of ours is getting ready to fly away again as she heads back to Regent University this Sunday. She will turn twenty-two on August 23 which just reminds me all over again that my little girl is no longer a little girl!
In my next post, I will let you know about an out-of-town adventure she is having this week so be sure to check back in.
What about you? When you got married, did you live in the area where you married, or did you move somewhere else within the first few months?
Thrift stores, fuzzy socks
and conversing with my Yorkie
are all on the list of things I love.
