The festivities started with a shower for the bride on Thursday. When the women of my family arrived, we got this glimpse of the bride peeking out at us from the hotel. It is one of my favorite moments and set the stage for so many wonderful interactions between the two families and all of the guests.
the Clam Cannery in Port Townsend. This was the setting!!
Port Townsend. They will eventually build a home here.
Here is a glimpse at the preparations:
made for a great backdrop for pictures of the groomsmen, groom and our family before the wedding. Their wedding had a slight prohibition/twenties theme.
The pictures do not covey the depth of pride I felt at the way our son and daughter-in-law planned this wedding, including the service. It was beautiful and poignant. Something unique that they did was to have the officiant share with all of us what it was about their partner that made them certain he or she would be the one for life. In addition, they found a way to thank all the parents for their role in creating a partner who they so loved. We are so very happy that they found each other. Life is good.
Thank-you for reading. Have a great weekend and stay strong in your journey to better health!
