I have just come back from my niece Jennifer's wedding, in Michigan. My sister and I drove out there from New York, missing the big nor'easter last weekend, and had beautiful weather the whole time we were in MI. Of course the bride is lovely. Here she is being escorted to the altar by my brother, her father
She was preceded by the flower girl, my great-niece Madeline, who didn't quite understand her function, and needed help from her father:
The ceremony was outside, as you can see, under a tent, on a farm in Ann Arbor called Cobblehill Farm. There was a petting zoo with a friendly goat, a horse and assorted chickens and roosters, who didn't interfere at all with the wedding. Afterward the vows
there was the reception line. Don't you love her dress and the bouquet? Perfect for fall. And the headpiece is from another etsian!
That handsome lucky young man is her new husband, back from Iraq for a whole year. They live in Hawaii now, where he is stationed. He just looks too young to be an officer in the US Army!
Ah, what a lovely day it was, and a wonderful party!
