On September 5 my youngest daughter got married. I'd like to share some of the pictures and memories from the wonderful day.
Shannon did a awesome job of of planning and putting together the wedding. In addition to helping raise a very active little boy who turned four the weekend before the wedding Shannon is starting law school and she worked full time up to two weeks before the wedding. I am in awe of all that she accomplished. It was truly perfect.
Here are Shannon, My Dad, and and me before we left the hotel for Lover's Point in Pacific Grove where the wedding was held.
And here are Shannon and her attendants.
The ring bearer and flower girl waiting for the wedding to start. I always worry a bit when kids are in a wedding but they each took the job very seriously and did an excellent job.
My oldest daughter Allison escorted me to my seat.
My grandson Aidan was the ring bearer
And here is the wedding party waiting for the bride.
The ceremony was beautiful. The minister read letters that Shan and Bill wrote to each other specially for the wedding about why they love each other. He talked about all it takes to make a marriage. I was so happy to have it all be so special.
The wedding included a sand ceremony. Aidan, Bill, and Shan poured sand together symbolizing their family.
The recessional music was the theme from Rocky. It was great! Everyone cheered including the casual spectators who happened to be spending Sunday afternoon in the park.
I don't think they could have picked a more perfect place for a wedding.
When we got to the reception Aidan took a nap in Lauren's lap. Notice that he has his favorite stuffed dog under his arm.
Then at the reception Aidan was ready to party. He said the grace before the meal and even gave a toast. The party was fun I think everyone including the kids had a great time.
I'd especially like to thank Rose, Sylvia, and Roger for all these great pictures!
