The couple relax for their post-wedding photos.

Carol and Mom

Meghan with a reluctant flower girl.

Meghan and Ben pose with their collective grandparents; the ones who were able to make it.

It was a bit of a chilly day and the chauffeur had a fire going in the limo's virtual fireplace.

Whenever I see a wedding cake, I now think of Franck Eggelhofer in Father of the Bride going on an on about the Cahck. Meghan and Ben had a lovely and delicious cahck.

When it was time for the couple's first dance, Meghan was no where to be seen.

She entered through the back door and approached Ben with some serious attitude.

They entertained --- and amazed --- us with a dance they had choreographed to Hello Goodbye's "In Your Arms".

Then Meghan danced with her Daddy.....,.

and Ben danced with his Mom.

Tim did a great job in a supporting role(s); he was the usher, unofficial photographer (unofficial because he 'appropriated' my camera and did a low-level growl whenever I approached it); he also served as disc jockey at the reception and chauffeur from the reception to hotel.

Meghan danced with her brother-in-law Tim

while Jenni danced with her new brother-in-law Ben.

Cut that out and smile prettily for the camera!

That's better.

Mr. and Mrs. Ben (Insert Last Name Here)

The rings.

The bubbles.

And they're gone.

What a wonderful post! I'm all teary - in a good way. The pictures tell the story and the narrative was perfect!

Good job, sly!

Anyone who missed seeing the bride and groom dance together, well, they missed something. Is that video available somewhere?

Any chance there is a video of .... well, later that same evening?

OK, I'll just slap myself.
