Getting back to normal

now that the big day has past.  I want to say thanks to all that sent well wishes and prayers our way.  We had a beautiful day for the wedding.  Couldn’t have ask for a better day.  We were truly blessed.

the happy couple The newlyweds!  Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Menser

All the family arrived the middle of last week, and from that moment on, we were extremely busy getting ready for the big day.  Hair and nail appts, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  Lots of good food, and catching up with family.  For the rehearsal dinner, my son wanted a backyard barbeque but since we didn’t know how to plan for the weather we decided to rent a venue to host the festivities.  We had our rehearsal dinner at a sports bar and grill, with all the backyard barbeque fare.  Simply yummy.  Anyone that knows my son, knows he is a die hard sports fan, so this was very appropriate for him. Complete with a tribute to his favorite team.

On the big day, the morning started off rather weepy for me.  I was extremely emotional, lots of tears as I reflected back on my son’s childhood and the man he has become.  I am so proud of who he is.  Such a gem!

Well that is a sneak peek into our day….please feel free to stop by the photo album and view the pictures (link below).  We took over 500 ourselves, but I’ve posted around 70 or so.

I wish the new Mr. and Mrs. all the love and blessings in the world. 

I have posted wedding pictures at my FB….so even if you aren’t on FB you should be able to view them at

Really should start my day but wanted to share some of our big day with you….hope all have a blessed day.

Hi Cindy;

What a blessed perfect day for the good looking newlyweds and of course their families. You all looked happy and wonderful. From one mom to another, I know the feeling of emptying the nest one by one. ;) Have a lovely day my friend. See you on FB. Hugs
