After much anticipation, we attend the wedding
of our niece Ashley, to her sweetheart, Rob.
Aren't they precious?
They met in college and had a long courtship-
Ashley is the beautiful daughter of my husband's brother
The guests await....
Daughter Heather gives us a smile.
We traveled from Seattle to Boston
with 3 of my 4 children and their spouses to attend.
The groom awaits....
The lovely Mother of the Bride
escorted by the Bride's older brother.
One of six beautiful bride's maids.
The adorable ring bearer streaks by!
The beautiful Bride on the arm of a proud Father.
So hard to give her away.....
but with his blessing to a good man.
She hands her bouquet to the maid of honor.
She faces her groom.
Vows are spoken...
Sealed with a kiss.
The Happy Couple greet their guests.
We arrive at the reception.
A beautiful venue.
A glimpse from the entry.
Delicious nibbles while we wait.
A lovely memorial table for those attending in spirit.
We choose our place card from the few remaining....
Shall we take a peek at the reception room?
I use my 'Paparazzi' credentials to get the first peek :)
A beautiful chandelier and draped ceiling
over the Bride and Groom's table.
A place of honor...
Windows overlooking the golf course.
A delectable corner.
Plenty of room for dancing!
My two sons and lovely wives pose in the paneled lobby.
My daughter and husband.
We find our seat.
Best Man toast...
Preparing to cut the beautiful cake...
I share a dance with my Ramblin' Man.
We pose in the hilarious photo booth.
I am the one with the heart shaped sunglasses
surrounded by family.
We all dance the night away!
We step outside for some fresh air
and to enjoy the beautiful architecture.
I see you!
All too soon this wonderful night was over.

It was a beautiful wedding
and we are so glad we came.
We wish our young couple all the best that life has to offer.
And as the full moon rises over Boston Harbor,
With heavy hearts we say goodbye.
With one last glimpse of the city of Boston,
silhouetted against a glorious sky,
we head for home with a heart full of precious memories.
Thank you for joining me, Dear Friends.
I'm so glad you could come along!
