Our Beautiful Day

We began with a “first look” for Charles and me at the flowering Butterfly Garden in Liverpool, followed by a thoughtful ceremony at a gorgeous old church in Syracuse, and then a roaring good time of laughter, dancing, and sweet conversation at our reception. Friends and family from across the country drove, flew, and took trains to join us for our special day; Chucky, the family doll and running joke, made several appearances (dressed in her wedding finery, of course); and the Syracuse rain held off just long enough for pictures outside. I saw my mom and dad dance in public for the first time in my life, my flower girl stole the show with her incredible cuteness and personality, and my dad quoted The Princess Bride wedding scene in his message.
