I know, that was a dirty trick.
Over the weekend I officiated my brother’s wedding. He married Danielle. They were married on an overcast afternoon in my parents’ home overlooking the Puget Sound. Immediate family and a few friends were there to celebrate with them.
I was honored to be asked to officiate and was excited to be able to write the ceremony and lend some of the bride’s jewelry. I also cooked up some grub for the party.
My favorite part was that when their babe became fussy at the beginning of the ceremony, Danielle just picked her up and handed off her bouquet. They were married as a family.
The ceremony discussed the choices that are made every day to be a family, and the complications and joys that life brings. The Mountain Man and I took a few pictures of the day. This just might have been my second favorite wedding ever.
