So anyway -
We were shuttled from the Beverly Willshire to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church for the ceremony.
The groom anxiously awaiting the appointed hour.
The bride's brothers - looking dapper.
Brian and I - looking wind blown.
We all went into the church and some seats had been saved for Brian and I. It turns out that we were sitting next to the pastor's wife - Debbie and her sister and brother in law Terry.
We chatted for about 10 minutes before the ceremony. As I was seated next to Terry, he and I made small talk for awhile. He told me about his three boys, where they went to college and what they were doing now, etc.
The church and all the flowers were gorgeous.
The bridesmaids were gorgeous.
The groomsmen were handsome.
The pastor/priest/whatever did an excellent job.
He was a very humble man and really focused on making the homily about the bride, the groom and God. I have seen many priests turn the homily into an opportunity just to hear themselves speak. But I was very impressed by his efforts to keep the service focused on the couple and God.
I will post more of the bride and groom when I am able to - but out of respect - I'll limit it.
My niece - the flower girl - with my sister in law and brother.
The "Get Away" car. Frank Gifford wouldn't get out of the way!
Kathy Lee should have gone over and gotten Frank so that I could have gotten a clear shot of the car!
When I have permission, I'll show you some more pics.
But you get the idea!
We watched the wedding montage DVD (shot in HD) last night (my neighbor brought it over) and once again, we were in awe. Words cannot describe the whole weekend!
We also had fun discussing how much everything cost and some of the private details of the weekend.
Seriously - the most fabulous wedding I have ever gone to or will ever go to.
