Two of David's friends have gotten married in the last month and thus I have found out that Irish weddings are lots of fun, but VERY long! The actual ceremony is pretty short and sweet, but then there is the picture taking and that usually takes several hours. (It's no big deal if you are close enough to go home, but if you have to wait around...it gets a bit long.) Then there is the meal which is usually very welcomed by that point.
It's all very Biblical really. Remember the story of the 10 virgins that fell asleep waiting for the bridal party to arrive? I can totally relate now!
Here are some photos of the first wedding we went to in May:
The Bride and Groom
Paul and Karen.
Paul was best man and did an excellent job on his speech!
My beautiful sister-in-law!
This was the menu! Yummy!
Trying to get Mariah to look at the camera!
Success at last!
Mariah is wearing the dress that my Mom made her. She got loads of comments on it! Thank you Mom!!
Here is Maryann with Mariah
Our friends, Brian and Tracie, also recently got married. Their wedding was beautiful and so much fun. They had a caleigh dance at their reception and I managed to capture a bit of it on video for you.
So that's a wee taste of an Irish wedding or two for you! Celebrating marriage is always wonderful.
