The Wedding


We are still basking in the memory of Rachel and James‘ beautiful late summer wedding. The bride looked stunning, the groom handsome, and the best man wasn’t bad either! Jim and I were so proud and pleased that family and friends could join us for the out-of-state event.


It was an elegant affair from start to finish. The ceremony was very traditional, and although some of the ritual was new to us, we found it all beautiful and moving.

Watching my dad walk down the aisle, escorted by my brother, was really touching. In spite of Dad’s worsening dementia, he clearly enjoyed the ceremony and dinner. A smile from him is a fleeting thing these days, but the photographer managed to capture several.




A fabulous live “swing” dance band accompanied the reception. Their music even lured me and my wheelchair onto the dance floor. At the end of the evening, the bride and groom opened their wedding quilt, which I’ll share in my next post.

Mazel tov!
