My Uncle Johnny dancing with his beautiful daughter, Katie.
Beautiful bride Katie with her handsome Captain, Sean!
The cake was done by a local bakery. Katie had asked me to do her cake, and I was excited to do so. But I have had such trouble with my foot, that I had to decline. And it turns out that was a good thing, since my Mom's accident, I have been busy helping her this past week too, so it was good that I wasn't doing it after all. It was pretty, and delicious!
My two nephews Tim and Joe (Mark's boys) with little Clairey Berry.
Katie dancing with her son Jonathon. I boo-hooed through the whole thing. It was a beautiful song by Celine Dion, and I am sure she must have written it for her son. It was so touching! Oh, hey...there is my little brother in the background again!
Guess who caught the bride's bouquet???? Why Nana of course!!!!
There's Gamma dancing with Gennifer and Clairey Berry.
Can you say "CONGA LINE?!!"
Clairey was out there shaking what her Mama gave her!!!
I got the biggest kick out of watching Hannah dance. She LOVED it!! Here she is getting tossed up in the air by her Daddy.
And here she is dancing with her little friend Chloe.
Here are Gennifer and Jake and Hannah and Claire.
And lastly, this is the almost finished picture that Katie was having done of the wedding party taking place. I had seen this lady at my daughter Erika's best friend's wedding back in April. I so loved the idea. I got her card and web site and told Katie about her. Katie loved it and she commisioned her to do their wedding. AND, she gave them 50% off for being in the military. She does a wonderful job. Her name is Karen, and we are going to have her do Erika and Jeremy's wedding too. In this painting, I am in the lower right hand corner of the picture, the one with the black camera strap around my neck! My Mom is in it, in the wheelchair, and Nana and Uncle Johnny and Sue, of course Katie and Sean dancing.....it is just a beautiful keepsake for a perfect day to remember.
It was a beautiful garden wedding! Thank you Katie for letting us share your special day!!! Much happiness to you both-always!
PS Erika and Jeremy and Noah couldn't come. Jeremy worked, and Noah was sick, and I guess Drew was hiding, because I didn't seem to get any photos of him either.
