Happy Is The Bride That The Sun Shines On

The date was set over a year ago. September 14, 2013: Brad and Laura’s wedding day. Motor Man and I were honored when they accepted our offer to be married in our yard.

(Brad’s mom and I met in 1978, and have been good friends since then. I wish I could say that we were just children at the time, but that would be stretching the truth quite a bit.)

The weather could not have been more perfect for a wedding.


The flower girl could not have been more adorable…

…nor the bride more beautiful.

Right on cue, Bride and Groom swans showed up in time for the post-wedding photo op.

The ring bearer and flower girl stopped for a second in front of our 1932 Ford. I happened to be in the right place at the right time to snap a cute picture.

The newlyweds’ first dance.

Bubbles as a send-off…
