First Wedding Photos

Hi Friends, I've missed you!!
Here are the first few photos of wedding day.

Everything went really well. We had a wonderful day!!! We had great Fall weather, with no smoke or heat. Yay!!
The bride was beautiful!!! She smiled the whole entire day.

I will be getting more photos for you in the coming days, but I thought you would want to see a few today.

I am exhausted, but in a good way.

The reception we were told by many, was the best wedding reception ever. I will have more pictures of that soon.

This is Amanda with Haley, one of the 3 flower girls.
Mark and I before the wedding. Amanda and her bridesmaids, me and my mom.

A sneak peek at the reception site.

Amanda and Joe the night before at the rehearsal dinner. One more of the bride.

I cannot explain what a fun, exciting and wonderful day we all had. This is the first of many wedding posts. I hope you won't get bored with them.
Thanks to all of you, for your kind and encouraging words. Thanks for all of my Anniversary wishes too.
Your friend,
