First day of ...

... The rest of life together.

Saturday, May 19, 2012

For me it began with my son leaving home in his tux for the wedding!
I know, I know.
He hasn't lived at home for quite awhile.
But somehow this "leaving" was symbolic for me.
He was taking a wife this day!
A woman perfect for him in every way.
The one I would choose for him if it was mine to decide.
But still ... a symbolic leaving...
and strong emotions filled me.
Yes, she is the one I would choose!
Perfect for him.
Perfect for us.
Guests started to arrive.
Matt greeting his grandmother!
It was a stellar moment for me.
Mom made it.
May 19 will serve as both their wedding anniversaries.

The cycle of life
The family who came before these two special people.
The right side is the groom's family.  The left side is the bride's family.


The programs and the flowers.

The vows - promises for a life time.

The happy couple - now wed.

The first dance.

The beginning!
