We had two people taking photographs - my dearest friend Wendy, who not only took photos, but also coordinated the whole shindig while working at her regular job, and one of Lorne's best friend's son, whose children are Lorne's godchildren. Also, my daughter Jaclyn (who did my makeup) took several photos when we came home for a brief rest before the evening's soiree began. It seemed as though everyone had a camera or phone pointed our way, but that was fine. It was all such fun.
In a previous post, I mentioned that I thought Lorne would pick one of Van Morrison's songs for the first dance and I was wrong! What he chose, and that he kept secret from absolutely everyone, was Etta James' version of "At Last." I was so surprised and we had a lovely first dance on the shaded porch of the 100-year-old mansion.
So it's been a while since I did a Smilebox slideshow, but I think this occasion warrants one. Enjoy!
