We were so blessed to be part of the beautiful wedding celebration of my dear friend, Beth Serven. It was such an honor to witness Jon and Beth as they said their vows and made a covenant together. The wedding feast was delicious, the whole reception was full of love, laughter, tears and joy. Thank you so much for inviting us and congratulations, you two! :)

Music outside to welcome the guests.

Check this is figuring out how to take pictures with her iPhone! :)

Nathan Clark George and his family were there and provided music during the reception.

Beth and her father.

All smiles.

The vows.

Beth and her mom.

Have you ever seen such happiness written so beautifully on a face?

Nice tie, Jonathan. :)

William crashed during the reception.

There God's people gathered, young and old, red and yellow, black and white, and by their dancing constructed the very throne of God. He watched and rejoiced as His children, without guile or pretense, expressed their praise and gratitude with the Virginia Reel and the Pattycake Polka. ~ R.C. Sproul, Jr

Until next time!


  1. It was wonderful to see and visit with you ladies at the wedding!

    Jessica E.

  2. And others of us spent the day writing papers on marketing and teenage driving fatalities...

  3. Dad and Mom got an iphone??

    I saw the Wedding via internet, and saw you guys in the video! Wish we could have been there!

    Love you!!

  4. Great shots as usual, Tiffany. I love the one of your Mom with the ddoouubbllee image of your sister.

  5. Tiffany,
    How wonderful that you attended Beth Serven's wedding!! The Serven's seem like a lovely family. I have never met them, but have visited their wonderful blog several times! ;) What a JOY to witness such a beautiful covenant marriage. ;)I enjoyed watching their "wedding video" on line.... I think I saw your family on the that right?! Hope you are having a fabulous day!!

    Love in Christ,

  6. Jessica,

    Yes, it was lovely to see y'all and we're so excited about the bread baking to get it on the calendar. :)


    Two words for you... Drink kombucha.


    Yup, mom and dad both have iPhones...they'll be Mac fans before you know it! :) Dad said that you said that you saw us. :) 'Twas a lovely day and I wish you could've been there too! Love ya!

    Mr. H.,

    Thanks. It was nice to be able to use the telephoto lens since we weren't very close to the front of the church. :) I took that one mostly for BFH as an update. :)


    The Serven's are a really delightful family and we've enjoyed getting to know them over the years! Glad you were able to watch the wedding online! Yes, we were on the left and about an hour early. :)

  7. Drink kombucha? Wow. I didn't realize that you were capable of such amazingly deep thinking when responding to me.

    Does kombucha make you happy? Is it intoxicating? Does it make you even more depressed than normal? Does it make you suffer from an overwhelming urge to wedding-crash some people's wedding (duh) in St Louis? Does it cure a head cold? Is it worth it's weight in gold? Silver? Paperweights? Will the Czech Republic take it as currency? Do cows give sweeter milk and meat if you keep them on a strict kombucha diet? Do they have kombucha in Narnia? Middle Earth? Pekin? Can it cure strep throat and SARS? Can it survive on Mars (or Pekin)?

    Note: If you give me a two word answer that doesn't make sense, I will do my best to make it even more unclear, random, and vague. Ditto to Ben.

    The duh was meant to accentuate the double positive in the sentence. Or, whatever that was. No offense.

  8. Jeremy,

    Yes, I have that effect on people sometimes.

    Kombucha has been known to makes people veeeeery happy, see this guy here has it posed in a family picture ( so it must be true. Is has like 2% alcohol and clears the mind, therefore it probably works as an anit-depressant. I've never had the urge to crash a wedding, so it must not have side-effects like that. The elves probably drank kombucha along with that wafer bread. Somebody else says that "kombucha is a delicious, effervescent wonder drink that has for thousands of years conferred its wonderful benefits on all who drink it: good health, great longevity, inner serenity and incisive mental clarity. "

    Is it good for many things such as your liver, it's a natural cleansing agent, used to boost the immune system and a proven prophylactic against cancer and other degenerative diseases. More importantly, it's a delightful cure for a hot tastes delicious and is most refreshing. As long as the aliens on Mars and Pekin take care of their mushroom, it should be just fine...just don't put the mushroom down your'll never stop growing. :)

    Oh, and I have four words for you (see, it's doubled!)... Drink lots of kombucha.

  9. It looks like it was a lovely wedding :)

    I noticed you linked our magazine, thank you! May I send you an issue?

    Have a very blessed weekend, I saw that you said you were getting ready for a trip! :) In Him, ~*~Jessica~*~

  10. Do you get arrested for drinking kombucha while driving? Walking? Snowboarding? Can I waive inner serenity if I drink kombucha? Are the aliens in Pekin legal? How bout Mars? Can kombucha be used as an anti-perspirant? Can you gargle it? Chew on it? Spit it over 20 feet? Use it as a flamethrower? Clean old violins with it? Is it good for parties? Classes? Making an angry marketing professor happy at me again? Will it get me an A in accounting? B? C? D? R? Is kombucha cute? Cuter than my minivan? My violin? My Face? Can kombucha double as ipecac? Is it a hit at brew night? Is it Ben-Ezra approved? Dies it rank up with bacon vodka? Regular vodka? Rotten potatoes?

  11. Jessoca.

    Yes, it was a beautiful wedding! So glad we were able to be a part of it! :)

    Oh! I'd LOVE a copy of the magazine! My friend, Elissa Pickel said she had an article coming out in one of the issues! I am so excited for her! Thanks so much!


    I have six words for you (I like counting by two's can't you tell? ;))...Drink Kombucha and find out yourself!

  12. Yes, Jeremy, kombucha is Ben-Ezra approved. Ask Seth about his kombucha sometime. Or ask Crystal, if you want to hear kombucha scobies talked about as though they are dear children. :-)

  13. Hey Tiff, how are you??

    It does look like a beautiful wedding! They're always so lovely... :)

  14. No.

    (I think I won this round...)

  15. Wonderful! I'll have one in the mail for you tomorrow :)

    Ah, Elissa must be Heather Pickel's daughter then, she did have an article! They did a pretty project on crafted recipe tins :)

  16. Thanks, Raquel! You're such a dear! :)

    Hey Tiph-darling!!! I'm doing just fine! How are you? Oh, I can't believe how long it's been since we've see y'all...sure you don't wanna come up for a visit? :) Yes, weddings are very lovely. Love ya!


    No. I always win, but you'd never admit that, and if you were to admit that I'd be afraid. Very afraid. :)


    Thanks! Yes, that's her and they are both so wonderful! I'm looking forward to reading it! :)
