Stephen Hainline & Sarah Criss's Wedding

Two weeks ago we had the blessing of attending and helping out with Stephen and Sarah's wedding.
We ( the Bryan family) were in charge of RSVP's, and orchestrating the reception.
A week or so before the wedding we went and started collecting supplies such as, 45 bottles of ginger ale, 4 cases of pineapple juice, 20 cans of frozen lemonade, 20 cans of frozen orange juice. And that's just for the punch:) Well I'm not going to bore you with the rest of the details.

Here are some photos I got of the wedding.
Our living room completely full of wedding stuff!
Thanks Mrs. Ciolek for loaning us nearly all the stuff we needed, you were a life saver:)

Stephen: "Wow, like what you did to the car"

The young lady that caught the bouquet was very happy

And finely they drove away.

The wedding went wonderfully. I pray that the new couple will continue to grow up loving each other in the love and adoration of the Lord and raise up Godly sons and daughters to be faithful believers that will serve the Lord their God.
