The wedding site was "up north" in Michigan, near Traverse City. It was a small town wedding, with close family and good friends. It was a charming, low-key kind of wedding.
Their grandson was the ring bearer. My husband took this photo outside the church before the wedding. I love his expression. I don't think he liked posing.
A tiny church in a tiny town.
The groom's son was best man. The groom's grandson was ring bearer.

The groom and the best man watching the bride coming down the aisle.
The bride's cousin was scheduled to perform the ceremony, but there was a family emergency and a substitute minister was called in. Here he greets the bride. The matron of honor in the background, is their daughter-in-law, wife of the best man and mother of the ring bearer.
The ring bearer, taking it all in.
The newly wedded couple, receiving a standing ovation and a hearty round of applause.
Emerging from the church, to a shower of bubbles.
One more kiss!
Time to take some photos...
Jackson is very cool. He lives in California.
More of the wedding weekend fun:
A cottage on a lake...
Guests changed into casual clothes...
Toasts were made and speeches given.
You probably can't see this last photo because it was getting dark. Women were doing a high kicking dance to "New York New York". Soon after this, we said our good nights and headed back to our hotel. It certainly was a fun wedding!
