Preparations

We're here in beautiful Orlando, Florida in the midst of a myriad of last minute wedding preparations. Its been such a special week thus far as we've enjoyed time with Kori, family, and friends. But while there's been plenty of visiting, laughing, and storytelling, our hands have also been quite busy. Here's just a preview of some of the projects we've been working on:


Cutting ribbon

Assembling programs

Making a white satin vest for the ring bearer.

Shopping at Sams for lots of cream cheese...


...and gathering spring-form pans.

For the rehearsal dinner, we're serving 7 different kinds of cheesecake.

Can anyone say, "Mmmmmm"!!?!

We're thrilled to have our friend, Anna, here helping with the preparations.


And as the preparations continue, the anticipation is building: Grandpa and Grandma Hager are here. Last night Andrew arrived. We leave to pick up Dan and Bethany from the airport soon and Josiah, Abi, and Joanna are enroute.

We're looking forward to a very special weekend ahead! Thank you all for your prayers. We look forward to sharing pictures and reports soon.

May the Lord be glorified!
