July was a busy, busy month---the 4th of July holiday and celebration, a family reunion, and then several couples came to Stonehurst Farm to have their celebrations of love and commitment to one another. Carl and I had such a wonderful time being a part of these special moments with the wonderful couples, their friends and families.
The first couple, Candace and Sam, met at their place of employment three years ago and became a couple a year later. They worked with me to select their readings and vows and it was a joyful morning on July 8th when they had their ceremony in the pergola.
July 16th was a special day at Stonehurst Farm for two precious couples. The first couple to say their nuptials that day were Carlene and Gabriel:
Shortly after Carlene and Gabriel's ceremony, Garrett, Ashley, and members of their family came to Stonehurst Farm to celebrate the love that Ashley and Garrett have for one another and for the precious baby girl on its way! Enjoy the photos of their celebration!
On July 18th, I had the privilege of meeting Heather, Isaac, and her family when they came to Stonehurst Farm to have their ceremony. This precious couple met while in middle school and obviously had cared for one another for several years. They requested to have the lyrics from the Randy Travis's song, "Forever and Ever, Amen" for one of their readings. And, that is what I wish for them as they proceed forward as a couple!
On July 22nd, Ronnie and Joanne came to Stonehurst Farm to have their ceremony performed in Georgia before going to South Carolina to have a celebration with their families! I found them to be a delightful pair and wish for them all the best.
On July 25th, I was happy to be a part of the special day for Crystal and James; they are just wonderful people! They are solid, down-to-earth, caring people, good parents. We enjoyed talking with them and their families immensely.
Sunday, July 31st, was very warm....but the love shared between Laura and Richard was warmer still and overflowed to their children and other family members! Laura's dress was lovely; Richard and the children were color-coordinated, all wearing various shades of pink! It was a beautiful site! Please take a few seconds to enjoy this couple's ceremony as you peruse the photos from Stonehurst Farm.
