    What a joy it was to view the pictures of the couple’s special day! Seeing guests at the tables talking with one another and NOT looking at their phones was just the best! 🙂

    May grace and blessings be in your path †

    How did they get taking pictures. As i understand Amish do not like pictures taken of them and no mirrors.

      Charles, you might want to read the first two parts of this series, which will explain where this couple is in their journey. But in a broader scope, it is not exactly accurate to say that all Amish have an issue with their picture being taken. I was the photographer at this wedding, and was told repeatedly that it was okay to take whatever pictures I was inclined to. Furthermore, at every table that I went to I asked if it was okay to take a picture. Only one table had anyone that indicated they really didn’t wish for me to do so. And remember too, as the article above states, there were many folks there who were not Old Order Amish.

      The idea that the Amish take offense at their picture being taken is not nearly as universal as we are sometimes lead to believe. Each community (and sometimes, each person) varies.

    So good...

    Thank you I am so fascinated by the lives of these wonderful folk, and the simplicity of the wedding compared to the many thousands wasted on the weddings of other folks… These people manage to have a wedding full of love and commitment without a lot outside influence and with the help of all their community. How good is that????

    Cute pictures

    Interesting pictures of a diverse crew. I love some of the outfits. The pastel colors are especially elegant. I hope they all had a good celebration together. I wonder what the menu included. Looks like they were getting wild with Pepsi and flavored milk syrups.
