The Wedding Pictures

When we got to the Church to set up for the wedding,
my son, James, was there with his family.
Tiago and Tiffany looked so adorable and were so excited
to be there. They ended up being the only grandkids there,
so it was extra special to have them.

Everyone pitched in to help get things set up and decorated.

My cousin ,Ellen and my sister-in-law, Renee really worked
hard to get everything looking just right.

I hadn't had time to do my hair yet and we only had about an hour until the time for the wedding - so I asked Renee, at the last minute, if she would finish decorating the cake for me by putting the roses and babiesbreath on it. She is a fabulous artist and Interior Decorator and so even though she doesn't do cakes, I knew she would do a fabulous job. And, of course, she did!!
Thank you, Thank You, one and ALL !!!!!
Doesn't everything look nice!!!! Everyone got their flowers and things were ready
- but my hair wasn't finished yet!

Mike was ready! Here he is with my Mom and Dad,
Bert and Carma Garner.

Meanwhile, I'm in the bathroom getting my hair done!
I knew exactly how I wanted it to look,
but I couldn't do it by myself.
My sister Ellen, had never done such a thing before,
but with a few tips from my cousin, Ellen,
she did a Fabulous job!!!!
I really appreciate everything she did for me and for my wedding!

My hair has never looked so elegant before!!!

And so finally, everything and everyone was ready!
The ceremony was sweet and simple.
My Dad and Mike's brother, Dan, were the witnesses.

The Kiss!
It's Official Now!!!!

Here we are - the new Mr. and Mrs. Micheal Walker.
Bishop Crouch, who married us, is off to the side.

We were (and ARE) Very Happy !!!!

We had a little party afterwards to celebrate.
Cutting the cake.
It was homemade carrot cake, very yummy, and yes, I made it.

Doesn't it look good!!!!

I was soooooo brave!
(We were both very nice to each other!)

Layne and Renee sang "The Circle of our Love"
They both have such gorgeous voices!!!!

My cousin, Ellen, me and my sister, Ellen.
I'm in an Ellen Sandwich!!!
Both of them have been such a huge help and support to me.
I am so lucky to have them in my life!
Mike with his brother, Dan.
Dan was the only one from Mike's family who was able
to attend the wedding,
due to some last minute emergencies,
so we really appreciated them being there for Mike!

She came all the way from Phoenix to be there.
