The Wedding

I've been telling you that my youngest son was getting married.  Well, on Saturday, May 16, 2015, he wed the love of his life, Krystal, in Stillwater, OK.

our family
 Both my husband, and our other son, Christopher, were groomsmen.  The wedding was small, but very sweet.  My favorite part was my son, saying a prayer with his bride to be, before the wedding.

What a great way to start a marriage, by including God from the very start.

Here are a couple more pictures of the happy couple.

The happy couple loved the wedding quilt that I had made them.

Yep, it's large enough

 What a great gift.

The signature quilt was a great hit, too!  I think everyone there signed it.

Thanks Carla for the great idea!

The rains waited until the reception was over, thank goodness.  We didn't have to deal with all of the flooding in Oklahoma.

Now to get back to some stitching.....


  1. Awe how great the prayer before the wedding, the pictures of him and the quilt, the signature quilt, and the happy couple, and family. May they have a lifetime of happiness, and joy!

  2. Such sweet pictures. Love the quilt. Congratulations to the couple. Wishing them much happiness.

  3. Congratulations to your son and his bride, as well as you all! It looks like it was a wonderful ceremony and reception! They are so blessed to receive the quilt you made for them, as well as the signature quilt which will be, no doubt, an heirloom! Glad you all had a safe trip there and escaped the flooding!

  4. How truly perfect. I love the pictures and seeing the quilt so happily received. Great job Mom!

  5. Happy loving couple, beautiful wedding blessed by God. Quilt is gorgeous. How lucky to have an appreciative daughter-in-law.

  6. Beautiful photos! Love the gift from your new daughter-in-love :)

  7. Congratulations. Your son must be very special, and it's good to see a couple starting out on the right foot (unless God build the house...) Wonderful! Your daughter in law must be a real peach because that necklace was a winner. Loved the quilt. I know you're happy and probably a little tired. Congratulations on a job well done....a wonderful son!

  8. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the photos. I think you have gained a very special daughter-in-law; that necklace says a lot. And the quilts are gorgeous. Glad all went well. ~Jeanne

  9. Wonderful! Blessings to all!

  10. Congratulations! And congratulations to your son and bride. That's so sweet of your daughter-in-law giving you such a beautiful necklace-such a kind heart. Your quilt is gorgeous.

  11. Beautiful quilts and a wonderful wedding, AND the weather held off; can you ask for more than that? Thanks for sharing the stories and pictures. So sweet.
    (The day we got married the temps came down into the 70s when the previous part of the summer was all in the 90s... a great relief to all our guests in their fancy clothes, and to us, too. Sometimes that will happen.)

  12. Looks like a beautiful wedding. Love the fact that they said a prayer together and she must be a sweetheart to give you such a beautiful and touching necklace!

  13. Congratulations to the newlyweds and to you...your daughter-in-law is very thoughtful. Loved her gift to you. The wedding quilts are beautiful and will surely be cherished and treasured.

  16. Cheryl, I loved this post. I love that you included the prayer in your story. Your son is a nice looking young man and his wife is beautiful. The quilt you made them is so fun and beautiful - front and back!
