The Wedding–August 20, 2011

Jim’s daughter, Robin Meacham, and Paul Crabb joined their lives and families in a beautiful ceremony at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Colorado Springs at 3:00 on a warm Saturday afternoon.

When they were both in elementary school, Paul was my son Josh’s best friend. Robin spent every other weekend with us and that’s when she got to know Paul. They’ve been friends for a long time! We are proud and happy to welcome Paul as an “official” member of the family!

In the days leading up to the wedding…

Robin’s personal shower was given by my sister Ann at her house. Below are Marilia (my niece), Robin, Tashi (Marilia’s daughter) and Berta (my cousin).

My sister, Ann, and I got out our sewing machines a few days before the wedding and made some table decorations for the reception:
