Worth a thousand words

Picture this:
A garden, lush with blooming flowers of all colors, arranged in symmetrical squares neatly intersected with walkways. Green grass surrounding you, trees overhead. In the distance--rolling grass and then the ocean stretching as far as you can see. Framed in an archway of stone: a bride, in a dress of homemade lace, clinging tightly to her father's hand....
This actually happened. This moment that is forever etched in my memory. I wish I had a picture of it, but seeing as how I was one of the bridesmaids, watching this moment happen through my watery eyes I didn't capture it.

The day began with the ladies spending a day at the spa. There might be better ways to spend a sunny Saturday than with some wonderful women getting pampered and enjoying the sunshine in between treatments but I sure can't think of any!

The boys enjoyed the sun in their own way: playing wiffle ball and bocci.

After a ride on the limo bus:

We arrived at the wedding location: Harkness Memorial Park.

We went to our bridal suite where we proceeded to keep the bride calm, finish getting our make up done by Lisa from Trish McEvoy, get dressed, and, of course, drink some champagne.

The evening ended with a fantastic party, including a very special dance by the bride and groom and an even better speech by the best men. New friends were made, old ones reaquainted and everyone had a great time.

Congratulations Beth and Scott. I love you both.

PS--More pictures to follow as soon as I figure out why Ms. Blog refuses to publish my photos.....
