I'm saved this time by my nephew's wedding. He and his lovely bride tied the knot on May 17. Blue Mason jars, heirloom flowers, and burlap made for a vintage theme amid a beautiful farm setting. One thing that the photos don't show is that the temperature was barely 50 degrees and everyone was freezing during the outdoor ceremony! Thank goodness the reception was indoors, where everyone was much more comfortable.
On the left is the groom's childhood next-door neighbor. She's posing with my oldest sister.
This is my sister and her husband, parents of the groom.
The maid of honor was striking. Thankfully you can't see any goosebumps!
Once the ceremony was over, wedding guests relaxed with cocktails (and got warm!)
while waiting for the bridal party to finish with photos. This is my husband with
my cousin's wife.
During cocktails, guests were invited to pose for silly photos using a variety of props,
including boas, goofy hats, crazy glasses, etc. This is my aunt. She might not like it if I told
you how old she is. Let's just say she was 11 years younger than I am now when
I was born...in 1960. Can you do the math?
My nephew, the groom, watches while his bride dances with her father.
And the bride watches as her new husband dances with his mother.
Their magical wedding ended with a sparkler send-off.
I'd never seen that done before. It was quite a sight.
Not only are the months flying by, so are the years. This handsome young groom was born just five months before my own wedding, 29 years ago.
