First Wedding for Buttons

Last Sunday we attended a wedding for our friends Rick and Dru. They've been together for a long time, but they were finally able to make it legal on a beautiful New Jersey beach on the Atlantic Ocean. They asked Buttons to be the ring bearer and she did it (with a little help). It's hard for a 2 year old to grasp what's happening, but I think she did quite well.
I love this shot of me holding her with her arm around my neck.

This is a shot of Rick and Dru right after the ceremony, which was so beautiful. The sky was blue with those wonderful big puffy white clouds, the sun was shining and the ocean was roaring its wonderful roar. They exchanged beautiful rings with three diamonds in each for past, present and future. The woman who performed the ceremony had a vase and she mixed blue sand for Rick and purple sand for Dru and told us that now that the sand was mixed, there was no way to separate it. They added some sand from the beach to the vase and we all marched on to a lovely reception where Buttons had cake and was quite pleased.
Happy Wedding Rick and Dru!

Congratulations to the happy couple. May they have many more years together. Buttons looked absolutely fabulous by the way, and that is a great picture of the two of you.
Hugs!

Awww. It sounded like a very lovely ceremony. I really like the sand analogy. Very cool.

And Buttons was sooo super cute!
