Time for the wedding !

As many of you know, our plans changed this year as my youngest daughter was getting married to her sweetheart. They spent this past year planning, re-planning and making sure everything was set to perfection. Our job was to get there a month or so ahead of the wedding to tidy up any loose ends. Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how things can change overnight. Anyway, we arrived and set up camp. The kids had done an excellent job of getting everything in order. All we had to do was get the reception hall ready and take care of some small odds and ends. It turned out to be a fantastic wedding, the weatherman cooperated and gave us warm weather under beautiful blue skies.

First of all, the setting was fantastic. Overlooking the small lake at a private country club, the ceremony would begin late afternoon.

Looking out into the audience across the temporary altar. Most everyone in their places waiting for the parents and the bride. I get to bring her in~!

First things first though. I had to have a short conversation with the pastor to ensure I had my lines down. He said I'd have no trouble remembering them, when he asked, "Who gives this woman?"

Meanwhile, out in the lobby, Debi and Josh wait for some final instructions so everything will go smoothly. Josh looked handsome in his suit and tie, although he wasn't too fond of the bow tie. Debi is always beautiful !

Time to get to it !

It was a long walk but what a beautiful bride. 

Dad's pretty proud !

Wait! Before the ceremony can begin, the Maid of Honor has to make sure the bride's train is perfect.

OK! Go!

After the ceremony, it's time for the traditional kiss above the waterfall.

One final picture before the reception.
