Hectic day, so no pics from work ... but I left work early because Scott and I attended a Tuesday (yes, Tuesday) wedding this evening in Issaquah. So, without intending to, I have a love/marriage/tradition/hope theme this month. And the couple that got married are the most beautiful, wonderful, deserving people. So let's take a little trip, shall we?
4:29 p.m. The wedding is at 5:00. It's 20 or so miles away. Think we'll make it?
4:44 p.m. Almost to Issaquah ... luckily traffic is light.
4:53 p.m. Joe Jetta saved the day. And I was wearing heavy shoes. Made it in time.
4:55 p.m. One rarely wears a suit in Seattle. Matterdays likes wearing suits. And a cute pink tie that one of my team members bought me for Christmas last year.
5:02 p.m. The groom looks a tad nervous.
5:28 p.m. The beautiful bride is given away.
5:45 p.m. I love this picture. They were both so emotional during their vows. The bride sweetly brushed away a tear off of the groom's cheek.
5:51 p.m. You may now kiss your bride. Applause.
6:10 p.m. The bride walks through the reception hall. Radiant.
6:17 p.m. The Hall - simple and very cool.
7:02 p.m. The bride's shoes. Somehow, I love them.
7:29 p.m. The First Dance. Of many, many, many dances.
As cynical as I tend to be about ... well, everything, I am one of those mushy types who tears up a bit at weddings. I hope that their life together is long and happy and more than either of them ever even imagined wishing for.
Lynette and Joel, Love and The Best Of Everything To You Always.
And that's my 12 of 12.
