Deana and James got married!

Deanna and Jake were married on May 26th in the lovely city of La Crosse at the International gardens in  Riverside park. The park is only a few yard from the edge of the water and a winding path leads you through flower beds designed with different culture and histories in mind; there is a lovely Japanese garden with Shinto lanterns and smooth stone benches, a Chinese garden with a water fountain of stacked stones, and a very amusing Norwegian garden with sculptures of trolls and Billy goats, like in the old children’s story of the ‘ Three Billy goats gruff’.

In the center is a large gazebo with the old-fashioned millwork and wooden trim that is so hard to find these days; it’s a perfect and romantic setting for a spring wedding. It was the perfect setting for Deana and Jake, and I was very happy to have been a part of their special day.

The colors for the day were Robin’s Egg Blue and silver, and Deana showed excellent judgment in securing small bouquets of silk flowers and silver ribbons at the many corners of the octagonal gazebo as part of the decorations. The effect was festive but not over the top, and very pretty, like the location.


With their family and friends gathered around them, our couple said their vows and were united. I always get a little misty at weddings, and I hope that never changes—but I could wish the weather had been a little warmer. Misty guests are sweet, misty skies, not so much. Still the weather didn’t dampen anything but a few leaves; everyone’s spirits were pretty high, thank you very much!

And get a look at the carriage Deana and James left the ceremony in—these two know how to do romantic right!


So to Deana and James, we here at heartfelt ministries wish every blessing and happiness! Way to go!
