Dancing the Night Away

I was waiting for the kids to get the "professional" wedding pictures back. They hired an apparently reputable and personable fellow who arrived at 2 in the afternoon, stayed until after midnight and took hundreds of photos. That was a month ago and we haven't heard from him since. He was paid a significant amount of money beforehand and we're beginning to get a bit nervous.

Thankfully many of our friends and family took candid pix of the wedding and I'm sharing a few of those until I track down our erstwhile photog and eat his hair off. Then, if possible, I'll post some "fancy" fotos.

Aaron and Van's wedding was held at Jack and Carole's home in Manitou Springs, CO. Folks started coming about 3 in the afternoon and either helped out or hung out. The bar opened about 4 and guests were able to neutralize their mojitos, home-brewed beer/ale et al with Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian and continental appetizers, entrees, desserts and a decadent and delicious wedding cake.

The ceremony took place at sunset on a large deck overlooking Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods. It was a windless, balmy and thankfully pretty typical CO summer's eve. I stood, soaking it all in, quite amazed and incredibly thankfully for all my blessings. I wondered if I'd live to see Sarah married. (But couldn't imagine how it could be any more wonderful than this moment!)

Everything was just about perfect. And if it wasn't, nobody told me about it. I had a wonderful time and lasted until the cake was cut, the speeches were made, the dances were danced and my corns started killing me. As I've found myself frequently saying recently, it was the best day of my life. I'm one very blessed old granny.

If it's not too boring, I'll share some more photos soon. Even if Professional PhotoMan never turns up. Love to you all.
