Then they ran into the yard to prepare for Trey's arrival.
Trey ran in searching the crowd for Deborah.
Trey and Deborah ran to meet each other.
Their first kiss.
Their first hug.
The purity and innocence of it all is beautiful.

I tried to get the boys to smile, but I was told later that it was a solemn event and they weren't supposed to. :)
The little boys thought sunglasses and earbuds would go well with their suits. So, I started calling them the FGSS (Flower Girl Secret Service).

The farm was the perfect setting for the wedding.

Orin and Chantel sang a beautiful rendition of, "When God Made You"
Trey and Deborah mixing the salt in the salt covenant. Once mixed it can't be separated, signifying that the covenant can never be broken.
