Art and Miquette's Wedding!

We have been waiting for this day for almost two years- the big wedding day of our dear friends, Art and Miquette. It was a tender, joyful event.
The Palm is an apartment building in Petionville.
Beautiful cake

The kiss!
Man and wife
I love the tradition of the bride and groom coming back after the ceremony to dismiss the guests row by row. Is that a common Haitian tradition? It meant lots of kisses for the bride and groom. Here, Miquette hugs Art's mama.
The bridesmaids were Cherline and Farah, Miquette's sisters, and Daniele, a close friend who also works at Quisqueya.
Girls from the Banks' orphanage
Ben with Miquette's brother Dan
Us with the McMahons!
Did I mention Ben was the MC for the evening? We might have gotten a little silly with the mic.
What a delightful evening. We are so happy, so very happy, for Art and Miquette. Did I mention they are our next door neighbors now?! Lucky us.

Father God, I ask you to bless this brand new marriage. These two people love you so very much and are an example for many of the Way- a life following you. I pray that you would lead them on a wild adventure of life fully abandoned to you. And also, lots of beautiful babies :)

  1. Congratulations to the newly marrieds! Art would not remember but we have met, when he was teaching at the high school that my daughters were attending, CVCA. May the Lord richly bless them as they start on this fabulous journey.
