Does anyone else think that if the hangar wasn't there the empty dress/shoe pic made it look like a bride had been raptured?

Do many people like the photos where Christopher focuses only on one person and all the others are unfocused? Those attendants meant a lot to the couple, so why blur their faces? And I would be pissed if I were one of the blurred; I took time to pose and then Chrissy Poo blurs my face?!! Looking back, they are the exact same photos he uses at every wedding. The couple knew what to expect, I suppose. Hopefully he is cheap.

Yup. I am certain that many Midwest fundy maidens of a certain age are doodling "Mrs. Taylor Bontrager" in the margins of their Abeka workbooks.

I would rather be blurred than some of the HD pics of people at very unflattering angles.  I know photogs can only do so much to make people look good, but he seems to go out of his way to get awkward and unflattering shots.

Wait, what's the age gap on this couple? In most of the pics he looks old enough to be her dad.

I think her hairstyle makes her look young. We don't know how she old is. He seems to be in twenties.

He's 27, and I don't know how old she is, she has no social media. Her mom is friends with most of the Hales, but I'm not really finding much on her, either. She's the younger sister and they don't exactly live near the church where the wedding was. I find this entire situation to be very odd. 

Tbh, I think Sarah Maxwell might have looked at Noah as a possible match for Mary, but the family history was probably too much for Stevehova.

Noah is now living in Bethel, which, imo, is going to be really hard on the newlyweds. Especially since they had to have been long distance. I can't even imagine meeting a guy, courting, visiting his family in another state, then getting married and moving to a community that isn't even on the road system, with a ton of new challenges and cultural changes on top of all the weird purity stuff that Abby was likely raised with.

Nah, I think he just isn't aging gracefully in the slightest. I would have guessed he was in his 40s at least.

I thought the same after seeing the first pic.  I don't know photography so if the lighting or what but that first pic is really harsh and he does look at least mid-40s.

Yuck, those pictures - the one with the woman prepping food with her long hair dangling down 🤢

And maybe BEC, but dude, groom, either shave or let it grow out. You look like Fred Flinstsone.

ETA: glanced at the thumbnails of Christopher’s other recentish work, and someone SERIOUSLY named their kid Job? And some poor funds maiden actually married him? I’d be afraid to 😆

The (male)Hales all have some genetics that make them look way old. Probably the traumatic childhood, too. Even the one who just graduated high school looks older than some of his older sisters. Noah has also been living off the road system (not off-grid) which means he's likely not been getting the daily recommended doses of fruits and vegetables.

Oh wow, somehow I missed that these were those Hales. I’m so glad they escaped, although it is too bad it was to another fundy family (the Buckinghams?)

Job is also a Hale. Papa Pilgrim and his wife whose name I can't remember were the weirdest combination of hippie Alaska fundies.

I think the photography package is Chris's wedding gift to the happy couple.

There is another Hale couple in Bethel-Job & Bethany (?). Christopher did their wedding last year just before flying to see his immunocompromised wife. The couple caused a bit of an uproar at election time as I guess he's on the election commission & he parked his tRump flag adorned truck in front of the polling station & hung tRump signs.

Anyway, the new Hale couple won't be alone in Bethel.

That was him? I remember when that happened but the news either didn't report his name when I read the article or I didn't make the connection. Not surprised. Joshua Hale and Sharia Buckingham are friends of a friend and they are hardcore Trump supporters.

That’s horrible!!  Their is a car by me that is still covered with Trump flags. I though by now the car owner would have taken them off but that didn’t happen.

This took me out! But if that money was reasonably invested (and wasn't just parked in a savings account) he's got a tidy sum.

Now Elizabeth is being spotlighted on the instagram. They did this with all of their children a few years ago. Now it looks like they are only doing it with the 4 kids at home. I don’t think it’s them trying to marry them off. I think it’s them bragging yet again. I’m always amazed by how much the Bontragers brag. Considering Becky and Marlin grew up in families that frowned on that sort of thing.

I couldn't help but feel sick when I saw the new post featuring Elizabeth. I get the feeling that Marlin and Becky are "husband hunting" for her. She turns 18 in December. I wouldn't be surprised if this time either 2022 or 2023 she is either engaged, married, or starting her own family. Marlin and Becky seem determined to marry their children off as soon as they can.

I think Allison's new baby will knock her off her high horse. Everything is very cerebral and ideological for her right now: mariage, body image, femininity, family... Nothing like a real baby and lack of sleep to bring you right back to reality. 

Allison is in for a rude awakening once the little one arrives. She seems to have entered marriage due to her parents pressuring her to find a husband and now is having a baby. When I look at photos of Allison and Jeremiah, Allison is all smiles and Jeremiah seems to be forcing a smile. Add a baby (and more children) into the mix, those two are in for a wild ride filled with a we-are-leaning-on-God-and-Jesus-to-help-us-get-through-a-hard-time for the rest of their lives or unless they call it quits.

Anyone noticed the nephews Elisabeth holds in the pictures are all male? 

She has 6 nephews and only 2 nieces. And the nieces belong to Carson and Lina. Who do not make that many appearances on the blog. Their kids make more appearances than they do though. That’s probably why we see so many grandsons on the blog.

Nephews are male by definition.

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
       
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      I’ve had to evacuate due to all the aggressive wildfires,  Mr Kool is evacuated to the hospital because of his non mobility, hopefully they find him a bed in the local care home.  Fire sucks.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
      Picture included for something cool to look at.
