Wedding of the Year......................

Well, in this family for sure!

The groom, his father & mates relaxing before the big event.
And we wait............nervously?????

We all got there - vows said - all happy - now for the food................

Bet no one else has had a rocket ship wedding cake - it was a marble cake & everything was edible except for the red fins.  The groom chose - not sure where the idea came from.

Wedding - Sunday week

Our youngest son is getting married Sunday week - this is their wedding quilt - actually finished in time for the day. It's machine pieced and hand quilted with shashiko thread and I'm thrilled with it. They love it too.
