Nick and Jillian Get Married

Nick is Bill's oldest and our second oldest. He and his lovely bride, Jillian were married Saturday.

Friday evening was the rehearsal dinner where the wedding party and family from both "sides" got to know each other and enjoy a yummy dinner.  Not surprising, the wedding party met at the venue afterwards to rehearse our "parts" for Saturday.

An evening wedding, in November, outside.  And the weather is as perfect as the setting. 

Photos are taken before the ceremony to take advantage of the light.

The ceremony also starts nearly on time - wow!

The wedding party is lining up and we see a weird light in the night sky. At first it's a helicopter, then it isn't. Information the next day references a test rocket in San Diego - but on Saturday night it's a UFO with wedding wishes.




Later in the evening I suspect there was a landing.....
It is a beautiful, sweet and personal wedding. I don't take photos as I want to be present for this delightful moment. With the whole wedding party shod in Converse you know we all had a good time :-)

Dinner is very good, the cake beautiful and tasty, and the DJ had the dance floor rockin' all night.

We are so happy for the new couple - and we got great in-laws in the deal too! Looking forward to seeing everyone for Thanksgiving.

  8. Oh, good! I've lost one lens cap, and never use the one I bought as a replacement. But I do always use a lens hood, which protects the lens and also helps with glare.
