Hi! Winnie Griggs here. Three weeks ago we had one of those milestone events happen in our family – my youngest daughter got married. Although there were the requisite number of bumps in the road as far as executing ‘the plan’ for the wedding, the ceremony itself was absolutely beautiful. As the proud mother of the bride, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the big day with you.
These first two are before-and-after shots of the bridesmaids
Here’s a shot of me and my husband with the bride. Remember me mentioning there were a few bumps in the road? You can see the evidence of one of those ‘bumps’ in this shot. Just before the wedding, I had an allergic reaction to either my make-up or hair spray or both. As a result, my right eye was swollen almost shut for the whole ceremony and reception. Needless to say, I tried to duck out of as many photos as possible!
Here is a shot of all four of my children just before the ceremony started.
The next two are of my husband escorting the bride down the aisle. I especially like the second shot – the two bridesmaids visible over my husband’s shoulder are our other two daughters and to the right of the bride are me and my mother.
And here’s the happy couple!
Here’s one last shot to show you the cake
I hope you enjoyed this little peak into what was a very special day for our family.
And to celebrate the release this month of Second Chance Hero, the sixth book in my Texas Grooms series, I will be giving a copy to one person who leaves a comment on this post today.
SECOND CHANCE HERO
Winning the Widow’s Heart
To help his dying sister, Nate Cooper once broke the law and paid a heavy price for his actions. Now the ex-con turned saddler hopes for a quiet life and new beginning in Turnabout, Texas. Being declared a hero for saving a child’s life, however, leaves Nate feeling like a fraud.
Since the violent death of her husband, single mom Verity Leggett has attempted to lead a safe life, avoiding danger and excitement at all costs. And her daughter’s handsome rescuer Mr. Cooper seems like a perfectly responsible man, one she can finally rely on.
When his secrets come to light, however, will Verity be able to get over his past and see Nate for the caring man he’s become?
