School is finally out...we headed to the shore immediately following dismissal to prepare for the wedding festivities. Here in the Philadelphia/New Jersey area it has been raining, raining, raining! My brother and fiance just wanted to get married at the shore...on the beach, cocktails on the deck of the Yacht Club, the rehearsal dinner on the dock of our favorite restaurant...but, all the rain made it look like it was not going to happen! Someway, somehow, or maybe it was just the luck of the Irish it stopped raining the sun came out just in time for cocktail on the dock the night of the rehearsal. The day of the wedding cloudy, windy, looked like it was going to storm any second, BUT, again about and hour before the ceremony the skies cleared and the sun was shining!!! Amazing!!!!! MBM and I before the ceremony...I look like I an standing in a hole...that dress needs heels! My brother...the groom. Linda and her dad They didn't have a wedding party and had their parents stand up for them. I read a poem and one of Linda's sisters read a blessing. My girls...they were flower girls along with Linda's three nieces. Love this picture...new cousins as the girls call Linda's nieces, they were watching the bride and groom dance....it was so cute! It was a great night...then it rained for the rest of the weekend!
