Areana and Timmy's Wedding
(Saturday June 23, 2012)
t's a beautiful
afternoon for Areana and Timmy's wedding. The sun's shining, there's a
pleasant breeze and wonderful music to set the mood. The chairs are
filling up... Bride's family and friends on the left and Groom's on the
right with immediate family in the front rows. Some time left for visiting
and photos before the ceremony.
Timmy's great Uncle Dick with his daughter Marilyn.
He will be 102 years of age in August.
Cheryl's holding Dave and Nancy's sweet grand
Areana's mother Linda with grandfather Armin
who's almost 90 years of age.
The wedding has begun...Here come the father and
mother of the Groom...Tim and Margie.
...to the front where minister John Mills and Timmy are waiting.
Next are the bride's maids and best men in the
The little ring bearer, and his brother....
Timmy's best man Brent receives the ring.
And finally...the cute lil' flower girl.
But where's the bride and her father? Everybody's
looking across the field...and waiting.
After some time they come riding up on horseback,
dismount and with arms entwined they walk down the isle to where the
minister and others in the
wedding are waiting. (We learn later that the reason they took so long
was because Areana's skittish horse bucked her off. She was okay, but they
had to brush the dust and weeds off her gown. Then she mounted her dad's
horse and completed the ride).
Behind them is a special communion table. Each wrote
a little ceremony expressing their love and vows to one another, before
minister pronounces them man and wife.
...And midst the cheers and clapping the attendant's
Mr. and Mrs. DeMartini. After a few more photos
everyone walks down to the dining area for a tri-tip steak and chicken
dinner. Areana and Timmy have their special table where everyone can stop and
wish them much happiness.

The DJ does a great job.
Time to call it a day...It was one of the most
beautiful, spiritual, and fun weddings we've ever witnessed. A wonderful
reminder of what marriage is all about. Thank you everyone for all you did
to make it special. We wish Timmy and Areana a marvelous and joyous life
