Wedding Bliss--Castle Wedding, Part 1

Beautiful, enchanting, lovely, moving. From beginning to end. All the hard work, planning, and a bit of anxiety paid off. From the first harp string, to the vows, the champagne toast, the incredible dinner, dancing, cutting the cake, throwing the bouquet, launching 30 chinese lanterns lit with tiny candles into the night sky with a full moon gazing down. Everything was stupendous and wonderful. I really cannot convey my feelings. I will let photos do the telling. I didn't really take a lot of photos as I was so busy experiencing the moment. Some of these photos were taken by family members. Thank you for all your wonderful comments before the wedding. My daughter is a married woman now!!!! Her husband is a wonderful son-in-law. Life is good!!

I'm late to the wedding but wanted to be able to read the whole thing without waiting, in between. Such a beautiful setting and so timely to avoid Irene! I love the simplicity of this whole occasion. An elegance never achieved when a gazillion people get involved. Now, on to post two!
