Wedding Pictures!

In my last newsletter I promised pictures from my daughter Devon's wedding. Well, we don't have them yet—or at least we don't have the official professional photographs yet. We've been told we may have to wait until December for those—boo hoo!

I like to keep my promises, though, so here are a few pictures our guests took (from left to right, top to bottom):

1. The Ring Bearers (grandfathers)
2. The Flower Girls (grandmothers)
3. Walking around each other 7 times
4. The Kiss
5. Dancing the horah
6. Cutting the cake

I will share more when the official pics arrive!
