Postby weisssoccermom » Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:31 pm

I hope I can get these to post. We just got back from Philly ....from our second son's (#3 child) wedding and wanted to share some of their pictures.
Wedding was outside...Bartram's Garden....TERRIBLY hot and muggy. Some of the pictures were taken in downtown Philly.

These are just a few that the photographer had on his blog. My son sent them to me. I am not in any of these...
Thank you for all the lovely compliments. It really was a special day and the kids deserve all the credit. They paid for and put this entire wedding on themselves.
I helped with some small things and did the calligraphy (invites) and at the last minute, some of the signs for them. It really was very special and i hope they are relaxing on their honeymoon and just enjoying themselves.

Thank you all for the wonderful compliments.
The kids put this wedding on all by themselves (ok, we helped a little) but they really pulled off a beautiful day! I wish they hadn't spent so much money but....it's what they wanted and being that they're older (he's 33, she's 31), they were going to do what they wanted regardless of what we said!!

They are off on their honeymoon....hopefully relaxing and enjoying themselves. Next....make me a grammy...PLEASE!

Wow, they had a very talented wedding photographer.
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 7 years NED). Is this real life?
