God’s Beauty : 30 Years and Counting!!!!

Today is a very special day for me…..it is my 30th Anniversary!  I have been married to the most amazing man…Norris Cole! The past 30 years have been filled with so many blessing and continue to over fill my life with joy, excitement and fun!  To think that at the young age of 20 and 19, that we could even start to imagine what our lives journey as husband and wife would be, is beyond words!  We have been blessed with four AMAZING children, Joanna, Cameron, Tucker and Anna Beth and the most WONDERFUL son-in-law, Tanner King, that we consider our own!  Work that has allowed us to meet so many incredible people and friend and family that are the BEST!   All I know is that I would say “I DO” over and over again with this perfect man for me!!!!!

Back in March, we were approaching our number 700th wedding here at The Plantation House.  My daughter, Joanna, had a wonderful idea that was impromptu….why not renew “Our Vows” and be the 700th!  Well that is exactly what we did! I got to say “I DO” all over again!  It was the sweetest wedding ever!

Here are a few pictures of that day!

Getting ready for the big moment! Made a bouquet from left over flowers from the wedding the night before:)

My oldest daughter was my “Matron of Honor”:)

Norris getting ready! We didn’t see each other before:) So exciting, just like the first time:)

Tanner performed the ceremony!

Our talented and amazing “one guest” Millie Skidmore….she was our photographer and videographer:) Thank you Millie!!!!

Here we go……

Norris’ vows…”You complete me”:)

This was the sweetest and the most fun wedding and reception ever! I can’t wait to say “I DO” again to this amazing man on my 50th:)
