A Wedding in the Family

A Wedding in the Family

So my blogs have been a little slow during June.

Why?

Because our son got married!

Although this blog appears on a marketing business website, I think it’s important to see the other side of business people. After all, we are intrigued by celebrities both on film and in business. I personally want to know more about Richard Branson’s Necker Island. (Actually, I don’t want to know more, I just want to go there!)

The same goes in small businesses too.  We want to know the person behind the business.

Weddings are a milestone in a parent’s life. I didn’t really realize that until this last month. It’s the final letting go. We will always be here for our children, but it’s in a different role once they are married. I was surprised how emotional we both were.

Anyways, if you are still reading, here are a few snippets from the wedding.

 

Relatives and friends came from the US, UK and RSA which was fabulous. We rented a house together and hung out there – talked, ate, drank wine, swam, played games, horseback riding, wine tasting, . Great extended family times.

The wedding was at Ponte Winery, Temecula. Gorgeous location. Great staff. Highly recommend.

And the ceremony was amazing with beautiful vows, strong message and God centered.

Reception was so much fun, with a great speech from the best man (our other son). Lots of dancing, fun games and a good time was had by all. (Games made by Glen Atkinson).

Most of all, we are so thankful to God that our son, Matthew, married Amber. She is such a great fit for him and he for her.  She fits in so well into our family and we love hers! What a blessing when your children find great partners for life!

Now it’s back to reality after all the celebrations. Roll on the weekly blog.
