The Wedding practice

We held our practice fairly early the morning of the wedding day as some of those involved came in from out of town and didn't get here very early Friday night. The day dawned clear, sunny and beautiful, although it was a little cool that early in the morning (9am.)

This first photo shows the guys walking from the clubhouse toward the gazebo where the service would be held. Our park is a senior manufactured home park and it is beautifully maintained. They are from front to rear, my sons M and B, my brother L, Pat's grandson B and me. The part of the clubhouse behind us is the indoor swimming pool which most of the kids would probably rather have been in than out here doing this practice.

Here is our Priest, V, getting the ladies and Pat's escort lined up, talking about spacing, etc. They came from Pat's house and walked up this pathway to the opposite side of the gazebo from where we guys came from. We had my two grand daughters, ages 6 and 10, as flower girls and they did a great job.

Pat was escorted by her older grandson, M.

We all made it to the gazebo and are receiving directions from V as to who stands where, who moves when and to where, etc.

Getting more directions.

It was all finished and Pat & I were walking away toward the clubhouse for the reception. Wait, this was just the practice but it sounded good to maybe just go ahead and sign all the papers and consider it a done deal. Except that we had a lot of guests coming in just a few hours to participate with us.

I'll finish a third post with wedding photos in a few days, that will cover the reception and the amazing cake that Pat's daughter, P, ordered for us. I've never seen anything quite like it. Now I must get back to sorting and packing things. I have to get this house finished.....

Some great shots Dick, I'm sure glad the day dawned sunny and clear for you. Can't wait to see the rest!
Great photo's and the blue sky made to order Look forward to the next lot of photo's..
I enjoyed the pictures of the rehearsal, Dick. :-)

I'm looking forward to the rest of the photos, but you'd better get busy getting that house cleaned out. You know you can't try out the new motorhome until you get the house taken care of, LOL! ;D

Have a wonderful weekend, Dick!

Love and hugs,
