Our Wedding: The Ceremony and Family
It seems incongruous to keep blogging in the face of the Sandy Hook tragedy, but it also seems disingenuous to pretend that my silence has a greater meaning. So I’m going to blog, and I’m going to be grateful for all I have, and I’m going to hope for action in the form of stricter gun control and more access to mental health care.
For now, let’s focus on the blogging part. I’m picking up where I left off with my wedding posts–this week I’m featuring the ceremony and a few shots of our families that were taken directly after the ceremony.
My parents and I, beginning our walk down the aisle. I love my dad’s bowtie.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day for an outdoor ceremony.
Hooray! We are married now!
My sister (and maid of honor) and I. My sister is wearing the same dress she wore for her own wedding in May, but dyed and shortened. Genius!
Our wedding party–Joe’s cousin Adam was his Best Man
Joe’s side of the family–The Gallagher-Hynick-Himmelsbach contingent
My dad recently bought a used Jaguar. It’s hunter green and really, really loud, but it got me to the ceremony in high style. Joe and I are enjoying our first of our signature cocktails–a margarita. (We also had Dark n’ Stormies).
I’ve got one more post planned to wrap up the wedding series, with the details from our reception and cocktail hour.
Stay safe out there, friends.
