New Beginnings

You might remember from a previous post I did about six months ago, where I showed pictures of when Bill and I visited my brother Danny’s new home in Cottonwood Arizona. We helped him hang pictures and get his kitchen in order and his new little home was just adorable, and perfect for him and his two dogs. The next two pictures are of that home in Cottonwood

While living there, Danny worked part-time at the local gym, where he met a lovely lady, Flo. Flo is a fabric artist, known in the community for her women’s apparel line featuring garments created from her own patterns. Flo’s website says “Flo chooses to work predominantly with lots of color and print, in light flowing fabrics to suit her imagination. For her fashion design and creating garments are an art form; the female form is the canvas and the medium is fabric. Flo also designs and creates Joyful Expression Flags, colorful flags used for dance performances and worship. One other of her artistic expressions By International Design, fabric sculptures on canvas.She also offers her seamstress skills for alterations to local residents”. Flo has a studio in her home and one in Sedona Arizona.

Fast forward to this past Saturday 4/25/2020. That’s the day Danny and Flo got married and started their “new beginnings”. The blending of lives of two very special people, who found each other, fell in love, and wanted to get married. They were going to get married in July, but since Bill and I were here taking a break for the month of April before we head to Colorado for the summer, Danny and Flo said they wanted to move their wedding date up so we could be there to share in their joy. Danny even asked Bill to be his best man.

We arrived at the new home Danny and Flo bought together (They both have their other homes up for sale), and found Danny relaxing in the living room. The wedding was very casual, and small, ten people total including the preachers, but it was absolutely beautiful.

Bill and Danny spent a few minutes bonding as we waited for other guests, and the preachers to arrive.

Flo, in the black dress, shared special moments with her best friend, Cindy. Cindy provided the cake and beautiful flowers to grace the table. Then Flo and Cindy went to one room to get ready while Danny went to another room to get himself ready.

When Danny returned in his wedding outfit, he and I shared a special moment as I pined his boutonniere on his shirt, and wished him all the happiness in the world.

Then Bill and Danny tried to get serious as we all made our way to the back deck of Danny and Flo’s home where the wedding ceremony would take place.

When all the guests were seated on the back deck, Flo made her way there. She was glowing and beautiful. As I mentioned, Flo is an artist, and fashion designer, and she is wearing one of her creations.

The music started playing, and Flo made her way to where Danny was waiting for her. The look of pure love on both of their faces.

They shared an emotional moment as they stood and just looked into each other’s eyes as the music continued to play.

They held tight to each other as the preacher read bible verses and led them through the ceremony.

Then Danny read his vows to Flo,

and we all cried.

Then Flo recited her vows to Danny,

and with the beautiful views from their deck as a backdrop,

Danny placed the ring on Flo’s finger, the preacher pronounced them man and wife,

and they sealed the deal with a kiss.

And with that, the preacher presented to us, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel G Vezie…

The wedding ring Danny gave to Flo is very special as it was once our Father’s, Mother’s wedding ring. Our grandparents were married over 60 years, our parents were married 57 years, and now this ring is a symbol of a long and happy marriage for Danny and Flo.

Lunch was served family style,

the cake was cut,

Danny and Flo fed each other some cake,

and we all toasted Danny and Flo wishing them health, happiness, and beautiful “new beginnings”. Love you both!

Stay Tuned!
