A Special Wedding Day

Despite heat, humidity, the threat of torrential downpours, and a church that felt like a sauna--my daughter Sara's wedding day was truly a grand one indeed. The rain stopped just before the groom, ushers, best man, and father of the bride boarded the trolley that would take them to the church. Fortunately, we were able to have photos taken at Derby Wharf after the wedding ceremony as Sara had planned.
A Picture of me with Sara before she put on her gorgeous wedding gown.
Sara was truly the most beautiful bride I have ever seen in my life!
If you don't believe me, check out the wedding photos that Tom Underwood, the photographer, posted on Facebook.

P. S. The wedding reception was a blast!
I'll probably be posting more of my own pictures later this week.

Oh Elaine! What gorgeous photos (just saw them on Facebook).

I'm so glad it went well! You all look so happy.

Beautiful pictures, Elaine. Congrats to your daughter and new son-in-law. BTW, Sara has the engagement ring I've always wanted. As amethysts are my birthstone and I don't really care for diamonds, I've always said I'd have an amethyst flanked by smaller diamonds.

Amanda & Jules,

I had the time of my life on friday and Saturday! That's because the Murphys and Magliaros have wonderful families and the greatest of friends. It was such a special pleasure to share Sara and Jerry's special day with all of them.



My mother gave the amethyst ring to Sara on her 16th birthday. Both Sara and my mother were born in February.

She was beautiful and so were you!! And the reception was a blast!

Thanks so much for coming to the reception. I wish there had been some cake to take home. I had the time of my life this past weekend. Sara's bridesmaids are such fun to be with. Sara was so happy that you and Alex could make it!

How wonderful! You both look lovely! And you had a piper (I love bagpipes!)

Sara, her new husband, Mike, and I all love bagpipes. We just wish the music director of the church where Sara got married would have let the piper play INSIDE the church.
