Sentimental Sunday

Today's Sentimental Sunday highlights the wedding of my cousin Aime. Aime and her husband David were married this past Friday at a local Country Club. The ceremony was held outside on on the patio and miraculously it wasn't raining (it's been raining pretty much everyday since April), the humidity had eased off, there was a lovely breeze and no bugs. Perfect!


This first picture is of Aime and her dad, my Uncle David, walking down the aisle. I love Aime's expression here as she recognizes our family standing and honoring her on her special day.




This picture of Geoff and I with Aime was taken during the reception. Aime is twelve years younger than I am and I have fond memories of her as an adorable toddler running around my grandparent's house on Christmas Eve in her red feety pajamas. She is just as cheerful and full of joy now as she was as a two year old. She is an incredible sweetie.



This last picture is not that great, but it contains many of my cousins, their spouses, one of my uncles and aunts, my dad and Sandy. This was such a happy day for our family. Like most extended families we see each other at weddings and funerals. At these times we always say we should get together more often. But, like families everywhere, it rarely happens. Our family has suffered some tragic events in the last year and we really needed a happy occasion to be together. It's though these horrible times that we realize how important family is. Even if we don't see each other often. This is my family. And I love each and every one of them. I would do anything for them. And I know they would do the same for me. They're my family.

She looks absolutely stunning! Those are beautiful pictures. (Don't you just love being the tallest one around...playful sarcasm included!).

Pam, there is little in life lovlier than a woman on her wedding day, your cousin is lovely. Once again, you are not allowed to say you are unphotogenic, I like your dress and jewelry. The family shot is good, you are all smiling and happy, a good day.
Thanks for sharing.

Alex - The only time I'm the tallest in the room is if it's a room of 5th graders or younger. LOL!

I love the first pic. She looks ecstatic! Absolute and true JOY! What a perfect day. No bugs, rain or humidity. All very bad words on a wedding day especially in a wedding dress!

First pictures I've seen of the wedding!! I LOVE that picture of Aime & her Dad. Aime waited a long time for this and I hope she and Dave will live happily ever after!

And I am thrilled there were so many of us there to enjoy the wedding and each other. It was an absolutely perfect evening and a wonderful family gathering. PS that is an especially nice photo of you and Geoff!
