The Wedding

My oldest got married last Saturday. I was in a dither about it because it seemed like it was going to be a bit of a disaster, but it turned out beautifully.

Alex, having a minor freak out just before the ceremony.

Alex and Kristin (and yes, I know, he looks like a gangster in that suit.)

Awwww....

Alex danced with O and it was the only time I got teary.
They danced to this:



*sniffle*




And this is O. I'm so screwed.

The food was fabulous. If anyone needs a caterer in the New England area, Blue Ribbon BBQ, in West Newton, MA, is awesome. Best wedding food I've ever had and the prices are more than reasonable. The day was lovely, warm and sunny, everyone was relaxed and Alex and Kristin looked deliriously happy, which is all that matters.

Congratulations Mama...or is the Mama-in-law? *lol*

Seriously, I just have never pictured you as old enough to have a child of marrying age. But then, I'm ancient and everyone seems so young to me.

So glad the day turned out better than you'd hoped.
