He finally found the girl of his dreams.
And we couldn't be happier.
All of that day was just so beautiful.
So many smiles all around. So many sweet, tender tears shed. Gratitude filling our hearts. Truly, a celebration.
Her sister and mother came from Wisconsin where she's from. We're all amazed that we again have more ties to this state. (Where two of my sisters live now.) They'll all be heading there next week to celebrate all over again.
After the temple marriage and pictures, our families congregated at Olive Garden for lunch. Then we gathered that evening in the canyon to party it up.
"Creating Team Ficklin"
Finally, the time came
all of us gathering,
some on one side, some on another
to send them off
on their way,
as husband and wife
through a tunnel of bubbles,
a tunnel of love,
off to their mountain-cabin nest,
to that hopeful and promising future that stands before them.
Every happiness, you two.
Today, tomorrow, and for many days to come.
