A Perfect Bride for a Picture Perfect Christmastide Wedding

My niece, Ashley Morgan Rogers was married on Saturday,
December 20, 2008, to Asa Frank Glass. The wedding was perfect.
These photos were taken by Ashley's cousin, Jamie Brokus.

Candid Shot!

And the Lord said, "Let there be CAKE"! And there was cake. And the Lord saw that it was good. And He did imprint it with the "Fleur de Lis", Ashley's favorite symbol. And the People Did Eat! :-)

Love is in the Air

I had meant to post this photo back in October during breeding season but I forgot to upload it. This is Wintertime Blues and SheltrgPines Morgan le Fey whispering "sweet nothings" in each other's ears!

The Old Barn

The Old Barn

The logs are warped and weathered
Heaving in the cold West wind,
Rain beats down on the sagging roof,
Yet the barn still stands,
Stubborn, resisting the elements,
Waiting for support, a helping hand.

The horses' name plates still hang
Precariously by rusty nails - Mayda, Major,
You can hear their hooves pounding, echoing,
Listen and hear the cow mooing
Contentedly in their stalls
A bit of hay is here and there.
Left from another time.

Cut, dried, peeled, by loving hands
The old barn stands proud,
A symbol of strength and endurance,
Still at the mercy of nature's whims.
Waiting for caring loving hands to nurse her wounds
And make her well again.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now the weather seems to be telling us
Christmas cannot be far off with the Second Sunday in Advent quickly
approaching. I snapped a few snow photos today.
