A Wedding Album
Last year sometime, my nephew Tim asked if I could take pictures at his wedding. Although I was unsure - I could screw up the pictures of an important day for a young couple - I agreed. Last weekend, the wedding finally happened, and I took all the pictures I thought I should be, and then some... So I thought I would share the pictures of Tim and Kristen's wedding day, and add a bit of music along the way. I will start with the obvious choice, Noel "Paul" Stookey's "The Wedding Song". Stookey was the "Paul" in Peter, Paul & Mary, the great folk group. This song is beautiful, so give a listen while looking at pictures.
Clockwise: My nephew Tim with my brother Tim. My parents. The wedding party.
Clockwise: Tim & Kristen. Ring-bearer and flower girl. Repeating the vows.
Clockwise: Waiting to enter the reception. Kristen's daughter Rylan knew how to work the skirt. Introduced as man and wife for the first time.
If that first song has run out, you can also hit play on this one, the gorgeous "Till The End" by one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Tom Goss. It is such a wonderful song about love and commitment, I thought it was good to include.
Clockwise: Kids watching the first dance. Kristen and Rylan share a moment. My parents with my brother and sister.
Clockwise: A quiet kiss on the dance floor. The garter thing. Father-daughter dance. The bouquet is tossed.
