A Lovely Wedding

My Husband's son Shawn got married this weekend to the love of his life Ginger. They had a very nice outside ceremony at Victoria Wedding Chapel with beautiful scenery and a lake serving as a backdrop as they exchanged their vows. Classic Black and White was their color theme. Everyone looked really sharp. The Bride and Groom just glowed with excitement and happiness.
The reception was held at the Comfort Inn. All I have to say is Wow! I had no idea the banquet areas were that nice. A tasty meal was served buffet style. Fresh fruit , salad, baked ziti, chicken, roast beef, roasted potatoes, baby carrots and rolls. The wine glasses pictured were filled with M&Ms some with the wedding date some with there name and others with pictures of them. A very nice detail. Also a bottle of sparkling cherry wine was at every table in addition to an open bar.
A DJ got all the dancing going after dinner was finished. Chip and I were called out to danced a slow dance since he was the father of the groom and we were able to squeeze in one more dance before the medication I took wore off. My endometriosis was in full swing and I needed to take 2400 of IB to get through the day. I just didn't want to miss the wedding. Of All the days to not bring my camera....what was I thinking....I wasn't. So perhaps when they come for a visit we get some copies of the pictures.
Chip and Shawn's mom never married. Which can make these types of events awkward. Neither Chip or I feel that way though and didn't expected any type of special treatment. Good thing too because we were seated the farthest away from the wedding party. And we were fine with it (but we did take note of it). By the end of the evening we made friends with the complete strangers we were seated with. It's just how we are and it seems how they are too which made it easy and enjoyable. Before we left for the evening we exchanged names and phone numbers. Come to find out they were like Shawn's family and were there for him through his growing up.
We wish Shawn and Ginger along with her young son Parker, and there new 8 month old baby boy Logan the best a family could hope for ... much health and happiness.
