Kim and her mother, just after Kim put on her gown
Kim’s family home in Maryland
September 2, 2006
Kim and John had a gorgeous wedding at Kim’s family’s farm in rural Maryland. Unfortunately the tropical storm Ernesto decided to make an appearance! The weather didn’t dampen their spirits, though, because both Kim and John were in great moods all day.
Mike has known John for years–he is a good friend of one of Mike’s best friends. We met Kim for the first time earlier this year, at a wedding in Key West. The four of us hit it off immediately! Kim and John are a wonderful couple, and it makes me smile to see that they are so happy together. We all hope to be able to return to Key West next year and spend more time together. In the meanwhile, I hope they are having an amazing time on their honeymoon in Australia!
The rain cast soft light throughout the farm.
The rain didn’t keep Kim from grinning ear to ear!
Her bridesmaids were excited, too.
Meanwhile, John and his friends were getting ready at his house.
It was raining so hard!
Kim’s mother helped her into her gown.
She looked gorgeous, and so happy!
With her sister
The little flower girl, Morgan, was ready, too.
Unfortunately she put her shoes on the wrong feet.
The guys arrived by limo! Here John is doing a happy dance upon arrival.
John was looking great!
With his dad
While the guys were having their picture taken, a group of guests arrived via Nascar limo. It was hilarious.
Finally we gathered for the start of the ceremony. After several days of rain, the sky started to clear just minutes before the ceremony, revealing the beginning of a gorgeous sunset.
