Wes & Susan | Joy and Jubilee

Posted on September 22nd, by Becca in Becca's life. 12 comments

Sometime last fall, we got a call from Mark’s dad, Wes, and he said, “Just in case you haven’t heard, I met a real sweet lady”.  We met Susan  a few months later and just loved seeing them so happy together.  Wes and Susan have found joy, freedom, companionship, and support in one another.

So in April, we took a trek to their hometown, Marathon, to be there to celebrate their union and have a party with practically everyone in that little town.  Everybody brought food, and we had a beautiful feast, celebrating God’s blessing of Wes and Susan to each other.  We love you so much!

Charlotte, Mark, and Aunt Haley

I remember these same father/ son dance moves from our wedding

Charlotte’s first chicken dance

The band they had play was called Pinche Gringos.  If you speak Spanish you will think it’s funny.

  1. Now that was what I call a super fun wedding, had all the important things, a bride, a groom and all the people who are special to them! They look so happy! Great job and thanks for sharing!

  2. That looks like a fun party! Every picture of Wes & Susan says, “the happy couple”.

    Oh, and Char doing the chicken dance is too cute!

  3. Oh MAN! I totally felt the love in that first dance picture (with the band in the background)!!! So sweet and intimate and heartfelt. And that Char is a DOLL!!!

  4. I love that in the photo of Char swinging between her dad and her aunt, Mark is holding a beer and a box of raisins in one hand.
