The wedding reception & The Cake
These photos will start out with the reception line as our guests entered the clubhouse where our reception was held.
There were a lot of friends and family who came, some coming quite a distance to be here with us. These are long time friends of Pat's who have now been introduced to me.
This photo combines new friends and old friends. I am shaking hands with my next door neighbor in the park, D, who I've known about three years since he and his wife, B, moved to the same park where I live. He also took some of the photos we are enjoying from our wedding day. There is also a couple that I've known since 1969, along with their youngest grand daughter who is the same age as my youngest who was one of our flower girls. D & J are the God Parents to my youngest son, M.
I am about to shake hands with the Red Hatter who is now the Queen of the Little Mountain Red Hatters while Pat is greeting S with her husband B behind her. They are members of our church, St. Paul's Episcopal here in Mt. Vernon. Pat's grandson, B, who was our ring bearer, is between S & B in the background.
Here is our Priest, Vicki, who not only performed our service but met with us many times before the service to help in so many ways. Thank you, Vicki!
Pat is an Elvis Presley fan. She has always been a fan of Elvis' and has quite a few things in her collection. When her younger daughter heard that we were getting married and going to have a wedding, she said she wanted to take care of ordering the cake. About all we knew about it was that it would be Elvis themed and included raspberry filling.
Here is that cake! It was wonderful.
Pat and I are posed behind the cake in one of the traditional photos that you just have to have in your collection.
I am including this photo just because I like it. I think we were kind of trying to decide where to cut into the cake and how we would go about it.
Okay, we probably broke tradition by cutting the top layer. I guess it is supposed to be taken home and frozen to be eaten on the first anniversary. The cake was very good but we are both trying to watch what calories we eat and unfortunately cake, even very good cake, isn't on that list. So I guess it is okay that the top layer was eaten on the wedding day.
We had agreed ahead of time that we would not smear cake over each other's face and we held to that promise. Here I am feeding Pat her piece of our wedding cake.
And here is Pat feeding me my piece of the cake.
There will be a few more photos from the wedding in the next few days but right now I have to get back to putting things away. I have made an awful mess in the middle of Pat's computer room with boxes of my "stuff." I told her tonight that I thought I only had another 18 to 20 car loads of my stuff to bring over. She said she might move out of her own house. Good thing I was just pulling her leg. A little.
Thankew, thankew verrmuch. ;-)
I didn't keep the top layer from my wedding cake either, Dick. For one thing every crumb was eaten and for another, I really didn't want year-old cake for my first anniversary. It must not have been a bad omen because we've been married for almost 22 years now!
Your yard sale will probably do better next weekend anyway. The first weekend of the month is usually best because retirees and other people get their checks mostly on the 1st and the 3rd of the month.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
Love and hugs,
Thanks for the photos, it's fun to see the wedding and reception.
Take care, hugs to you both (and Huggy, too) ... Meow
Look forward to seeing more photos and hope you had a great long weekend over there.
