Just a quick post on our fabulous day Saturday at my daughters wedding. Oh my word, it was wonderful in every way and I can't believe the time went by soo fast.
I'll have more to say in the weeks to come but for today I'll just say this.
The weather was gorgeous, the kind of days that happen in New England only about 10 times per year; dry, sunny, warm, flowers in bloom...gorgeous.
Our family was all there, but it was sad that no-one from Ivan's family could be there. It was great to have everyone come out for the event. We only wish that Ivan's mother and brothers could have been there.
But we did pick up about 50 'extra' guests at the beach. No one really expected June 7th to be 80 degrees, sunny and a perfect beach day, but when that's how the day turned out, most of the North Shore arrived on Good Harbor Beach and didn't leave for dinner time. I love this shot of the guys arriving and the beach volleyball game going on behind them as they walked to the ceremony spot.
It was fun having the entire beach community hear our Pastor's message about God's love and marriage. Who knew that he would have the opportunity to preach the gospel on Good Harbor Beach? He was great. I loved his message.
And how fun was it that Sarah and Ivan asked my mom and peter to play music for the ceremony. They did such a nice job playing soft instrumental songs for the prelude, procession and recession. The accordian worked great on the beach. Peter had the mike on the guitar and my mom's accordian music blended perfectly. How great is it that she can still play that baby at 77 years old. You go girl!
