Mount Hebron Presbyterian Church

These photos are from last December 29th when my daughter got married in this church. Not many churches allow non-members to use their facilities for weddings as we found out.  Sarah and William were members of a Presbyterian church that meets in a neighborhood center - not big enough for the wedding they planned.  Fortunately Mount Hebron is very open to others using their lovely modern sanctuary so that's where we gathered on a Monday morning, yes Monday, in December.  We followed the ceremony with a brunch at the Howard County Conservancy.

Here's William relaxing on the piano before finishing his dressing.

The church was still decorated for Christmas.

This old stone building on the church grounds dates to pre-Revolutionary times.  It's used for meetings now and for the bride's party dressing room.

Here's the lovely couple with Dan and I.

That is a beautiful photo of the four of you. Your daughter looked amazing. Hard to believe that was a year ago.

Hy Marcia !
Unique is the church.

Lisca said...

Yes, that certainly is a beautiful church. Your daughter was very fortunate to have been able to use it.
Someone else commented on the red. Because of the poinsettias and Christmas decorations, red could be worn and it looks very festive.
It's nice you posted a photo of you and your DH. Now I can envisage the person behind the photo.
Besides, I'm the new kid on the block in the meme, so it's nice to 'meet' you.
Your daughter and S-i-L will be celebrating their first anniversary soon.
Greetings from Spain,
