Wedding Day to remember. . . . . .

What can I say other than the day was one of the happiest ever. . . . .for me, 
our family, new friends, many of whom had traveled far.
It drizzled some, but of course the Brits didn't mind!
The bride was drop dead gorgeous, her attendants incredibly lovely.
Venue was amazing, food delicious, wedding cake scrumptious, 
liquid refreshments plentiful.
The age group was phenomenal - five months to ninety - and everybody danced!

The biggest surprise of all, making this wedding truly a whirlwind affair, 
Cassie and Richard, determined to do it right, had taken ballroom dancing lessons! 
Their first dance was a real dance, a perfect foxtrot with several dips, no trips, 
and much concentration.
One guest held up a 10 points sign, applause was deafening.
All I can say is, it was a beautiful wedding, everyone was very happy, and 
we all had a wonderful time celebrating the newly married couple.


  1. Mary, Congratulations to the newlyweds. The wedding sounds perfect. Thanks for sharing your beautiful event! Happy New Year! Bonnie!

  2. I am so pleased that everything went off so well and you all had a great time. Thank you for sharing the lovely photos, I am sure there will be more later.

  3. Oh this looks so lovely Mary! Congratulations to the newlyweds, a perfect way to start 2015! xx

  4. What a lovely day - days like this remain with us forever.

  5. Congratulations to the young couple. May their life together be filled with happiness.
    For the middle of winter everyone seems to be dressed very lightly.

    1. Louise, some drizzle but not cold - even at the end of the celebration at midnight, when we made an arbor of sparklers in the garden for the newlyweds to run through, it was quite humid. Then we drove home (45 mins.) in thick fog!
      Cooler weather coming here soon though, Jan/Feb/Mar usually - and I'm ready for some snow! New Year's Eve will be down to freezing I hear.
      Have a happy one - Mary

We had the time of our lives, and if we could go back and do it all again -- I wouldn't change a SINGLE thing.
