a few snapshots from my daughter's wedding

I was too busy most of the time to take a lot of photos at Charis' and Vince's wedding, but here are a few snapshots Emily and I took along the way:

This is just me and Emily at the reception. I wonder if the twins thought I was Mr. Conductor? Usually my dress uniform is a bit fancier than this; my badge and other "hardware" turned up missing, and it wasn't until we were on the way over that I realized they were on my less formal class "B" uniform. Who'd have thought a spare badge would come in handy?

The first dance ...
Emily took this one, and had a lot of trouble in the low light getting something from a distance. Right after this my grandson Brayden ran up and started screaming at us, apparently unhappy that Mom wasn't giving him enough attention, so the rest of the dance involved three dancers.

The DJ is a professional air personality who goes by Chris Cage ... but he's also my brother-in-law, which makes these three helpers my nieces and nephews. They lost their home to fire a few months ago, but it's being rebuilt and everyone's doing fine. Christian (on the right) is wearing a shirt that came all the way from England, courtesy my good LJ friend .

Family! That's Emily with my brother, mother, and step-father, and standing in the background is my chocolate brother Martin. Hey, that's what we call him. My grandmother is in the back table, to the right.

The Groom's family! Emily and I were a bit occupied when the photo of the bride's family was taken.


  1. You have to highlight, copy and paste the links, apparently -- I have no clue why. I can't get it to work right on Dreamwidth or Livejournal, either.

  2. Mark, what a wonderful family gathering. Everyone looks so happy. Looks like a blessed day. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yep -- no fights broke out and no property damage resulted, so overall I'd mark it up as a win!

  4. Mark,

    Congratulations! Hope they will be happy. Wish I could view the pics. I tried copying and pasting but it didn't open for me. I don't know why. I need my computer examined. Problem some extra safety feature turned on. Anyway, I'm glad everything went smoothly. Take care!

  5. Sorry it didn't work for you, Lena -- although it's probably more because technology loves to mess with me than anything else.
