Yesterday, I mentioned that just the two of us were looking forward to going to Matt and Heather's wedding. It was a lovely wedding! The weather was very accommodating reaching 85 degrees, for a high. It was a small, intimately romantic wedding. Heather was a beautiful bride her gown was strapless white organza, trimmed with a red belt and red cascading ribbons down her back, her bridal veil was also trimmed in red very striking! They both made such a cute couple.
The Pastor that married them, was from our neighborhood and friends, Derek and Rebbecca, so we sat with them and their 22 year old daughter, Naomi, who was accompanied by her 25 year old boyfriend, Craig, and every now and then their wonderful outgoing son Andrew would join us, as well. Derek, also writes for our local news paper; we have enjoyed reading his column for years, so we were in good company! They were fascinated that I was blogging, me and my big mouth. lol
The ceremony was beautiful and went off without a hitch. Afterwards, the guest went inside where everything was decorated in red, and white. Ivy covered in white twinkle lights was strung across the breath of the ceiling, arches, floral arrangements, and the four columns that encased the dance floor.
The DJ immediately started a little game to get everyone in the mood, while the wedding party were outside taking pictures. It was fascinating to me...really, that anyone was capable of doing this game. He would play a song backwards and as soon as someone could name that tune, wallah they won! Well, Craig, from our table, was the first to answer correctly, so our table got to go to the buffet directly after the head table and the parents table. Very cool! They served three different pasta dishes and salads, very tasty!
Here are Heather and Craig, we had so much fun with them...could wedding bells be in the future!!! :)
After everyone ate, we did lots of dancing.
Fun dances like the Chicken dance. The Hoke poke, you know, all the silly dances.
Here is our Son, Kevin and our Dil, Renee dancing and enjoying the wedding.
Here is our grand baby little Ben, sound asleep and dancing with Jane.
She is so sweet.
Here is Matt taking off Heather's garter belt.

So, it's just the two of us thrilled that we won the dance contest for the couple ~ married the longest! lol 27 years! Upon winning, I was given the microphone and asked to give our young married couple a little successful happily married advice. Here we are pictured at the right wishing you a love that endures! We felt so blessed out on that dance floor!
