My fourth daughter, Joanna, married David on May 6!
The pictures must start here, with the ring bearer racing down the aisle (mommy had candy waiting) and losing his shoe!
Meanwhile, his little sister toddled calmly down the aisle.
Joanna asked both her father and me to walk her down the aisle.
Joanna and David greet and thank their guests.
And hers... (this photo taken by The Hornes Photo)
My father is on the right.
And then outside under the oak trees for photos of the bridal party.
Mommy took his big stick away and threw it behind the bridesmaids, but the ring bearer is still all wound up!
He finally settled down. After the official picture, he decided to retrieve the stick, and then squeeze himself back through the line of bridesmaids.
Little kids and big sticks! What can I say?
This pic is just for the grownups!
And then on to the beautiful reception at a waterfront civic center.
The bride's three brothers and one of her six sisters.
Our neighbor and my dad hit it off wonderfully with story-telling.
My oldest daughter's family!
The groom's parents, Cris and Chuck, are wonderful people, and I'm so glad that Joanna and David live near them.
Beautiful cake table!
Traditional father-daughter dance...
Each of the bride's and groom's parents offered a toast or little speech. Here's mine...
