The Big Wedding: Introducing Katelyn and Drew Oostra

Posted By on April 14, 2013

KD_bwNoraIMG_0903RoseNoraIMG_0841The day was perfect for Katelyn and Drew’s wedding and the evening before was equally as nice for the rehearsal … and the most appreciated rehearsal dinner, hosted by the Oostra’s at Jags. I can’t speak highly enough of Barb and Randy … and Drew’s two brother’s Carson and TylerCarsonDrewTyler_WeddingPart (right); Katelyn is very blessed to have them as family.

The women (Brenda, Barb and Katelyn) planned a wonderful wedding along with a little help from their guys. Each of us was assigned a few tasks and rose to the occasion. Katelyn and Drew were very pleased and thankful for everything and everyone.


As a father, I couldn’t have been happier to walk my precious Katelyn down the aisle and have her exchange marriage vows with Drew. Their testimony and commitment to each other in front of family and friends was everything parents could ever ask from their children.

Since the “professional photos” are not available yet, I’ll used the technology at hand to include a few photos from family and friends with smartphones who used the Wedding Party App, Facebook or shared their cloud-based photo albums with me (thanks Nora). The collection of candid photos are indeed a treat!
