And here’s the part of the reception that everyone loves: the cake cutting!
It was a wonderful wedding and reception (and the early reception the evening before was so moving, there were almost no dry eyes in the room.)
I took a total of 288 photos of the weekend event. You are welcome to go view them and make prints for yourself. (Here’s the link) Those of you who have PhotoShop capabilities, I have left them as hi-res photos so you can have more freedom to work with them.
Those of you who are not graphics folks, these are digital pictures than can be made into larger prints for framing too.
What can I say? They are a beautiful couple.
This was the moment that they were first introduced as husband and wife.
As I wrote a couple of posts ago, I went to Miami to attend the wedding of some good friends, Roshini & Adima.
They did a very cool thing and got married on a cruise ship. (That means that we all got on the ship to attend the wedding and reception, then we had to get off for them to go on a two-week honeymoon cruise.)
Here’s the happy couple at the hotel the day before they got married.
Well, tomorrow I have to go back to work after a week off for Thanksgiving. I have to say, it was a much-needed break. And to share the enjoyment, here are some quotes about time off:
“There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.” ~~ Mary Wilson Little
“Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?” ~~ Edgar Bergen
“No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.” ~~ Elbert Hubbard
Have a great day! 🙂
Blogging is addictive. If you don’t believe me, check out this video… 😉
Just a quick post to say that I’ll be out of town for several days and won’t be near a computer. I’m headed to Miami to attend the wedding of a good friend, Roshini. Of course, I’ll post photos and a recap when I get back.
Have a great weekend! 🙂
I have the unfortunate luck to live in one of those highly critical states where the political ads, door-knockers with brochures and recorded phone messages have been driving everyone crazy for weeks. I for one, will be happy when the election is over. This is just disgusting.
To try to bring some levity to the day, here are some great political and election-related quotes. 🙂
