My brother Ben and his wife Diane after the ceremony… note the big smiles… no words, however, I fibbed about that part... but the picture says a thousand words. They do both love Tyler and that’s great. They know he will love and honor Laura and she’s as crazy about him as he is about her. (D. Menard)
The groom’s cake. Tyler, besides being a huge OU fan since he graduated from OU and was president of his fraternity, is a huge Red Sox fan. The cake was chocolate… and despite his choice of teams (being a Texas Rangers fan myself) the cake was almost as good as the bride’s cake. Yes, I ate a piece of both. My job is to share photos with you and to report things as they really were, keeping it real, you know. (D. Menard)
Shall we dance? Shall we dance with each other, shall we fly? (name that movie) They look so right for each other and so at ease… I think the rest of the world could have disappeared at this moment and all would have still been right in their world. (D. Menard)
The first dance with Pop. Bless his heart, he had been dealing with a bad back for several weeks, but he managed to not only walk Laura down the aisle, give her away and pull off his dance with her. Brother of mine, you came through for the Baby Girl… (D. Menard)
The dancing commenced. The girl in the front green dress is my niece, at least I more than claim her since she is married to my nephew Paul… And is the mother of the incredible Max… I’ll introduce you to him one of these days. I think they were doing the Cotton-eyed Joe here. Those line dances fascinate me… probably because I have two left feet.
Diane and her best friend for many years and my friend that let me swipe some of her photos for these wedding posts, Devonna Menard. I so thank you for sharing with me, Bonna, so I could share with everyone that wanted to read about this shindig. You snapped a bunch of good photos and they have sure helped me put my thoughts into the words I wanted to share…
You want to see the most handsome fellow at the wedding?
The man that stole my heart?
The one I can’t leave out of this joyous post?
The grand finale?
We all celebrated and this boy said it all without a word… He’s Laura’s nephew, Elijah, just walking good and he was such a good boy during the wedding. He was dancing around at the church while all the photos were being taken after the wedding and I managed to get these photos and I had to share…
I hope I’m still around to see him grown up, in love,
And dancing at his own wedding… even though it will break my heart that it won’t be me he will be marrying…
TTttthhhhhat’s all folks. Thank you for letting me share my joy and happiness about this union.
Laura and Tyler walk hand in hand and hand in hand with their Father and his son Jesus so they will have the Great Counselor guiding them through their long, loving, life together.
