Has a year flown by already?

Was it really only 365 days ago that we were running through the wedding ceremony, making sure everyone knew where to stand?

Was it really a whole year ago when the long countdown was finally over?!
--and here it was, the day before our wedding!

As I look back, I can't help but think of all our precious family and friends who blessed us in so many ways. They helped pull together so many details and truly supported us with their love, counsel, prayers, and excitement.

And yes -- we were excited, too!

After the rehearsal, the Beasley's had prepared a delightful supper and evening. What a precious time to sit around and reflect on what God had done to bring us to this very day!

Dan's Uncle Doug entertained us with a lively rendition of "Good Morning Life" that captured our excitement perfectly...

Good morning life!
Good morning sun how are your skies above?
It's great to be alive and in love!
Good morning life!
Good morning birds sing out your happy tunes --
Feels so good because I'll be seeing her soon!

Last night she said she loved me
What a pity to part
I slept with both eyes open waiting for today to start.

Good morning life!
Good morning world how are you happiness --
All at once I know what livin' can be.
Its' life, it's free, its someone waiting for me
Who'll someday be my wife!
Good morning life!

A year ago we were in a small town in snowy Nebraska...and this Texan was really excited about a glorious covenant made between two faithful friends of Christ :)

Bethany, I've been wanting to email with you discussing wedding photography and sister is getting married and we have been followers of you for a little over a year now and love your photography. My sister is having rather a small, simpler wedding, so cost would be a big part for her to consider about. We are from Alaska, and I'm not sure if you travel far to photograph?!!! Ever wanted to come here? It's such a beautiful state!!
Anyhow, I would love to hear from you so we can talk farther about this. is my email address. Thanks, and oh,I realized I didn't wish you a happy anniversary on this happy belated anniversary to you and your prince charming. <3
Blessings, Hannah Shields
