A picture is worth a thousand words...Wedding!

Once again, another important event in my life...our wedding!  It goes without saying, but it was a beautiful day, and I have so much to write about, but not enough time, nor room.  So instead, I resort to photographs.  These have been taken by a variety of people and compiled together for this post.  Photo credits go to (but are not limited to): Mom Hewitt, Mom Miller, and Grandma Meigs!

The details....On May 11, 2013 at 1:00 in the afternoon, I, Rebekah, married my best friend, Daniel Miller.  We were married in Ira, Vermont, at the church I grew up in.  Here are a 'few' pictures that have captured the special weekend!

The Rehearsal

 L to R: Becca left large shoes to fill as best friend when I went to college.  Kari was the answer to pray in filling those shoes.  Sarah is my blood sister and blessed beyond words to have her in my life.

 I have always been a Daddy's girl, and able to talk with Dad.  He has taught me so much throughout the years, and has a strong, yet gentle way about him.  He will always be my first love.

The Rehearsal Dinner
 My in-laws put on a beautiful rehearsal dinner hosted at my brother and sister-in-law's home.  We had a baked potato bar with brownie sundaes for dessert.  My goal was to have an extended time down there to focus on relaxing and spending time together...they helped us reach that goal!

In-between Time
This group of ladies is irreplaceable.

Kari's sister, Kiki, did the girls' hair...we were so pleased with the results!

Dad's first look at the bride!

 There is not much more classy then a minivan to go to your wedding in!  Love it!  My sister served as an awesome Maid of Honor!

Before Ceremony
The new families!

 Oh I do love my groom!

 Being an uncle is such fun...

 I had some ideas of how I wanted things decorated, but they were undeveloped.  My friend, Hannah, came up and I put her in charge of decorations.  She worked her magic, and very simply and tastefully decorated the church and reception tent.  It exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds.

Sorry, but it is blurry.  For our guestbook, we did a photo book that people signed throughout our engagement pictures.  It already sits in our home on display!
We are thankful for the heritage we have in godly marriages.

 Instead of unity sand or a unity candle, Daniel and I did communion just the two of us.  As Before the Throne of God played, Daniel and I together united our lives before the Lord as we remembered His ultimate example of love.  We were able to pray together and before us and God, commit our marriage to Him.  This was such a special time!

Maid of Honor!

We do still need our moms!

Our bridal party: L to R, Becca ( childhood friend of bride), Kari (college friend of bride), Sarah (sister of bride), us!, Andy (college friend of groom), and Alden (college friend of groom).

...being an aunt is such fun!

They tell us being a Grandma is such fun too!

The Ceremony
Daniel and I wanted a way to involve our guests in worshiping our Lord on this special day.  My eldest brother, Scott, led us in singing Be Thou My Vision.

The kiss!

Reception Time
We were honored to have my Grandma Hewitt in attendance   She is failing in health quickly, but we had been prepping her all week with extra naps, and prayers.  Praise the Lord, she was able to be in attendance!   Before Grandpa passed away, they had been married 61 years, again, what a heritage we have!

Scott had been complaining that we weren't feeding him a 'real' meal.  So, in humor, we provided him with a banquet TV dinner.

Sarah's MOH speech was so special.  She talked of the memories we have with our "half" movie date nights, when I would (never fail) fall asleep soon into the movie.

My mom made and decorated the cake...yep, she's amazing!

And we're off....happily married as Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Miller!

We now reside in the Charlotte, NC area where Daniel works (as an airplane mechanic) and I have a job for the summer as a teacher in a summer day camp!  We are settling in well and loving married life.  We covet your continued prayers.
