Joel and Nanda's Wedding Day

July 5, 2012
"By day the Lord directs His love,
at night His song is with me--
a prayer to the God of my life." Psalm 42:8

We are so thankful to have attended the wedding
of my brother Joel to his beautiful wife, Nanda.

Here are a few snapshots from the day:
The groom picks up his bride at her parent's home
 the morning of the wedding.

Greeting each other for the first time. Look at that beautiful woman in red!

They're back! The bridal couple returns to her parent's home,
after getting photos taken. We all welcome them with cheers and enjoy a relaxed time of coffee and lunch before heading to the city hall for the official ceremony. 

Here they are!

In honour of Joel and Nanda's love for veggie gardens,
her family decorated this arbour with fresh veggies!

Riding the bus that took all of us day guests wherever we needed to go!

It is now official!

Karlyn can't speak Dutch, and Esther doesn't know much English,
but they still had fun together! 

Then it was time for the church service, where the rest of the guests joined us.
Here's Joel, watching his bride walk down the aisle with her father.

Although we couldn't understand all of the church service, it was still beautiful to witness
these two commit their lives to the Lord and to each other.
The worship was very beautiful too.

We are so thankful to have the opportunity to share this special day with with Joel and Nanda.
They're a great couple!
May the Lord give them many happy years together!
