Okay – technically it is still summer in the northern hemisphere, but the cooler days and nights seem to indicate that autumn is on the way. And — for my family at least — it seems to be “wedding season”.
A couple of weeks back, I wrote about my sister surprising everyone with her small, intimate wedding. This past Saturday, her son tied the knot with his love of many years — but they chose the traditional route of a bigger gathering. It was a wonderful day for all.
So, on that note, this is for David and Samantha.
