Connecticut was cool and raining most of the weekend. Boy did they need it - everything was crispy brown, burnt by the very hot summer they are having. My son's garden only had sunflowers left in bloom... On Friday, it was off to Danielle and Steve's wedding in West Hartford. Danielle is my niece - here she is coming down the aisle with her dad, Pasquale.
And now she and Steven are married! I just love the way the sun decided to shine on them as they turned from the altar.
Here they are greeting people outside the church - look at the evil eye my sister in law, Jennifer (jiffy) is giving me!
The reception was held at Aqua Turf, an amazingly beautiful venue about a 1/2 hour outside of West Hartford. God bless Google directions!
My little Karlin says "Hi Grammie! Can I have your camera!"
Russ and Taryn were there too! Didn't they look great?
But the music was tooooo loud for little Karlin I think. Such a serious face!
Daddy enjoys a quiet moment with his little man, overlooking all the fountains.
Here's a sweet shot of the groom, Steven, talking with his new father in law, Pasquale.
It was a great weekend but ended on a sour note: Trudy had planned a goddess party at her house for Monday night and so I arrived expecting a gathering. Her brother, however, has taken a turn for the worse so there was no party. I ended up heading home and it was so good to sleep in my own house!
Tune in tomorrow for unbelievable pictures of BETTYfest, the Kiley reunion at Danny's house that we held two weeks ago...you are in for a treat!
