A Norwegian Summer Wedding

One of the last things I did on my trip to Norway was attending a wedding. God must have a special place in his heart for the couple who got married. He blessed them with a fantastic summer day squeezed into the coldest and rainiest summer in Norway for years. 

The young couple was already civil-married and wanted also the blessing of the church. The groom is my husband’s nephew and already had a little son with his princess. For my husband, the event was a nice occasion to meet family members he had not seen for decades. It was nice being surrounded by over a hundred festive people. The ceremony was touching and got a special boost of the nice summer weather.
