Wedding pictures!

"Their descendants will be known among the peoples, and all who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed."  Isaiah 61:9
This is the verse that God gave to both of us when we were still single, before we even met! We praise God for His amazing goodeness!

Presenting....Mr. & Mrs. Milhomem!

July 5, 2008 at aproximately 6:15pm I officially became Mrs. Merlyn Jones Braun Milhomem!!, 
It was one of the most wonderful days of our lives. It is a wonderful thing t
o marry your best friend!! 
The wedding was at my home...everything was beautiful...just perfect. We had people from several states, and even friends from South
 Africa and United States come to be with us! My brother Johnny and his wife Krista came to be with us from L.A. (it was the first time they met Mario), two of my roomates from college were there (Jessica and Cherollyne), my childhood friend Raquel, and even a new friend who came from L.A. to teach English at the YWAM base was there (Louisa). Relatives that I had not seen in more than a decade were there too. It was so much excitement in one day I couldn't stop the end of the day my cheeks were sore!!
Looking back it seems like a blur...all I remember was Mario's face as I walked down the aisle shaking and smiling. I thought I was going to be the one crying, but Mario surprised me as he was the one who cried when he saw me! It was so cute!
My dad was the one who married us...I think that's why I felt so calm and in a way it felt "unreal" like I wasn't really getting married....and then suddenly my dad
pronounced us "man and wife" and we were off....
It happens so quickly...but that was just the beginning. I have been married about 2 weeks now! It's a wonderful thing be be married...a wonderful thing indeed!
