On October 29th our son Andy and his sweetheart Kristin were married! We don't have the professional photos yet but hopefully this collection of snapshots at least covers the highlights.
There were no pre-wedding jitters for the groom and his best man, Nathan.
At 7:36 am on the day of their wedding the bride sent this Facebook message to the groom:
"Hey, what are you up to today? Wanna get married?"
At 7:37am he replied: "Think I'm mostly free in the afternoon."
I'm thinking they're probably going to get along just fine.
The happy event took place in the picturesque village of Cohasset, south of Boston. Not that it's relevant but some of the scenes from the movie, The Witches of Eastwick were filmed here.
Andy was pretty excited about his first limo ride. This was actually the first time His Madness and I had been in one, too. We arrived at our wedding reception in a yellow VW beetle.
His Madness did a great job greating the guests and wondering what to do next.
It's not a proper wedding reception without the Best Man's speech!
Kristin's lovely sister, Laurie served as bridesmaid and confidante.
The Halloween wedding cake was awesome, Kristin gave it a 10!
Next, there was the father and daughter dance . . .
then I got to take a turn with my handsome son . . .
. . . and finally everyone got into the act!
We all had a great time, the aunts and uncles . . .
cousins and old friends,
along with the members of the band Silent Wild (who Andy is lucky enough to play guitar with)
and their lovely dates, whose names I have (very unfortunately) . . .
managed to completely lose track of . . .
and finally, some old pals from high school, complete with fangs!
It was a wonderful wedding and now they're off to Hawaii!
