Happy Anniversary Tommy & Claudia!



It's so hard to believe that four years ago these two stood and spoke their marriage vows to one another.  They have had four great years and we are so happy for them in their marriage and because this year.......

they're having a baby! 




My father in law said at our wedding that it is a wonderful thing to see your children happy!  He was so right.  

There was a lot of hustle and bustle in the months and weeks leading up to the actual wedding day, but everything was so beautiful and smiles were on every face!

I wanted to do something really special for their rehearsal dinner and give them something that would remind them of what marriage means.  I researched the rose colors and then wrote a little thing and framed it and had it on their table.  The flowers turned out beautiful!


When I first talked to the florist about doing multicolored roses, she tried to discourage me, saying I wouldn't like all those colors together.  But I held out because I needed those colors!

I'm sure even if you click the picture you can't read the card, so here is what it says....

Yellow with red tip.....................falling in love

White.................purity and worthiness
Yellow............................joy and friendship

Red............................ great romantic love and passion

Pink...............................appreciation

Orange......................................desire and enthusiasm
Coral...............................desire

Red and White together..............................unity.
This bouquet symbolizes marriage!  Falling in love which is the first step,
Pure and full of joy....friendship which is the core of any relationship,
the great romantic love and passion that drives the marriage,
appreciation for each other so necessary in life,
the desire and enthusiasm that you have for one another,
the unity in two flesh becoming one!
We give you this bouquet with our prayers that you have a lifetime of love and happiness!

We still pray for both that they will continue to love Christ first, then one another and of course this wonderful new baby boy to be born this summer!
Happy Anniversary and many, many more!

What a beautiful and perfect gift to give on their wedding day, so personal and heartfelt! Oh my, so they are starting out on another adventure soon, then? How exciting (and a wee bit scary), hope they had a truly memorable anniversary, filled with love and laughter.

They are an adorable couple and it's so exciting that they are expecting.

I loved your idea for the roses...so sweet and unique.

My time on the computer has been limited lately (and probably will be until after our daughter's wedding), but I've had fun catching up with you tonight.

Hugs!
