Beautiful wedding

Well peeps the wedding is behind us and it was beautiful. The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding and the ceremony was held in a beautiful location in St. Joe Michigan.
The newlyweds seem to be pretty happy to me :-)
The Best man and Maid of Honor, Neil Nicholson ans Ashley NiCole were great.Neil grew up with ed and I consider him my other son. Ashley is Megan's best bud and she is such a sweetie.
The thrilled parents of the groom.
Shadowland Ballroom at Silver Beach was beautiful.
 My candy buffet was a big hit! All the time spent gathering was well worth it.
 Mr and Mrs Edward Winter
 My beautiful sis in law from CA, Nicole, stayed with me a few nights and kept me sane as did my friends. What would we do without friends??????

 Thank you Nicole :-) Thank you Karen Radiger for all your help with the dress hunt, candy bar and confidence that I could pull this off. You are tops! Leslie Kenreich, I wish I could have given you a hug, sick or not, I cannot believe you came to share this event with me. Hugs my friend, please feel better very soon.

Thank you to all our friends who shared this special day with us, even in thought (SP). Also my brother Steve and his wife Mila who traveled from Hawaii to join us on this special day. And for Mila who brightened the day and made 30 leis to give to family members the night before the wedding. Mila, you are awesome. Thanks to you both for being with mom, it was so wonderful that she could attend with your help. I know she enjoyed herself.

Ed's uncles and aunts were there and it was so great to have them with us, I know it meant a lot to Ed too. I wish I had more time to spend with them but I was in a daze of exhaustion and didn't snap out of it until the following day. I hope they know their presence was appreciated.

 Here's to the Newlyweds...we love you!

  2. Good morning dear MB, oh what a treat to get to share this special occasion. The Candy Bar looked perfect, I had no doubts. Now take a big breath and off you go to conquer other quests. The weather looked awesome for the wedding and that was Mother Nature's blessing to them. You know how MN can be pretty finicky as she has been all year. Hugs and hugs and thanks for sharing this special time in your life with us. xoxoxoxoo YRoT
