A Weekend of Wedded Bliss

Clustered into a crystal bowl Joe and I received as a wedding gift, a dozen white roses add a little loveliness to his parents' house, where guests gathered to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary.

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend honoring Joe's parents on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary. The celebration included dinner by the pool Friday night at their lakeside home with out-of-town guests; an elegant plated dinner for 60 at the country club Saturday night; and a poolside barbecue Sunday after church for lingering friends and family.

The weekend provided a sentimental look back at 50 years in the Lester family. It was a celebration of love and faithfulness, and I was so thankful to play a part in honoring this special couple.

I have so many creative ideas to share from the weekend. Between my sister-in-law Emily, a wedding and event planner in New York City, and my sister-in-law, Shannon, an artist with unmatched creative flair, no detail was overlooked throughout the weekend. Thankfully, my photographer brother, Nathan, was on hand Saturday night to capture images from our special evening. So I look forward to sharing details of our celebration all week!
