A November Wedding

.

The bride is shy, so pics of the most beautiful woman will not be shown, but I can show you some of the fun we had today.

Here is Michael, escorting Ashlee to the reception at a lovely Inn in old town.





We were the happy participants in posh surroundings.





It was a balmy 63 degree day with lots of sun.













Sportin' Spiffies.





This is also where are going caroling before the Christmas ball.





It was a Catholic wedding, and the priest was from Ghana. What a beautiful accent he had!





Cake.





Fluted glasses.





I played with the candles in cracked glass while visiting...





Even the bathrooms were gorgeous.





Yeah, I know. But I clean bathrooms for extra income.... They don't look like this. LOL

I loved how the light from the chandeliers played through the glass with which we toasted the bride and groom. (Kat, I'm thinking of you with my perfect grammar.)









so in love are we two
that we don't know what to do
so in love (so in love)
in a world of our own (so in love)
as we walk by the sea together
under stars twinkling high above
so in love are we two
no one else but me and you
so in love (so in love)
so much in love (so in love)
so in love (so in love)
so much in love (so in love)...





A little live music, specially performed for the newlyweds...





My guy...





Let the dancing begin! First the grownups tripped the light fantastic to a selection of disco numbers. They seemed to remember how to shake it quite well. But I did not get there quick enough to photograph them. When they were through, the younger generation took possession of the territory.

Something about dance floors and children...













Jeremy is sitting this one out, but he asked me to dance later.









We are spoiled by having our very own, experienced DJ, IN THE HOUSE! (Ok, I admit, I'm not so good at that.)





My favorite, well one of them anyway, part of the day was when the guys all lined up and danced to "My Girl" for the ladies. Each one of them stepped out and gave a solo dance during the song. Thanks, guys. We LOVED it!













I think they deserved this, don't you?





Taking a breather





While Michael and Kasie step out into a waltz, and a couple of little ones make a game of darting between them every chance they got.





The food was so good, I didn't notice the centerpieces when we were feasting.





Heading up to the rooftop.









I'm beginning to think these boys are in the running to outshine the girls...





Here are a few...





Michael entertained some of the younger ones with his hat.









Nice view from up here.













Michael and Josiah, a little break dancing...









Whoops. That floor doesn't have a lot of give to it...





Time to go...













And make sure Ashlee gets home safely....





A nearly perfect day...





Stopping to smell the roses...





The chariot awaits...





It was great. Somebody ought to get married at least once a month.

  8. Faith, you always seem to have something going on..you and Michael sure do stay busy! Enjoyed the pics, the city looks quite historic!

    By the way, the baking soda worked GREAT on the algae! Jan and I made a paste, scrubbed it on the liner and viola, off it came! Now it's sparkling clean!! Thanks for the advice!

  9. Linda,

    At first when I heard the bride was going to wear purple, I was having a hard time picturing it, but the whole color scheme turned out really nicely.
