If you can imagine a couple more beautiful than this scenery, than you have imagined Kelly and Michael Maves! It was so much fun to be a part of their wedding day at Camp Red Cloud. I think one of my favorite decorative touches was the aisle that the staff at Camp Red Cloud had covered in a blanket of yellow aspen leaves for Kelly to walk down on. Gorgeous doesn't even begin to describe it. Enough said...here are a few shots of the florals. All the photos are courtesy of Steve Ramirez and Fifth Gear Protrait Designs
Kelly's dress was gorgeous and the petals on the front of the dress looked like quaking aspen leaves!
My best story is the one where I tell you that I got to marry the guy I met at age 13 while on vacation at a Dude and Guest Ranch in Colorado! He is the absolute best friend a girl could have to do life with!
I am sold out crazy about Jesus and loving people well. My man is an undercover cowboy/outdoorsman living in suburbia (his Africa). We have 3 of the most beautiful children that we did not hatch but have the honor & privilege of teaching each how to fly. I am passionate about a million things, but my top five are:
1)Discipling my three littlest disciples that live right under my roof really well so that they grow to know, to love, & to obey their Heavenly Father.
2.) Unity in the body of Christ & among individual believers.
2.) Adoption. It's how God has designed our family & how He's built each of us into His family.
3.) Child Sponsorship that works to release children from the cycle of physical, generational, & spiritual poverty.
4.) Giving women a vision for friendship which loves generously, pours grace freely, bites it's tongue frequently, speaks the truth in love, & sees other women as allies and not competitors.
