There are few perfect moments in life, and when they do come, you never forget them. When everyone came together to celebrate the marriage of Chris and Laura, there were too many perfect moments to count. When Laura and Chris spoke their personal wedding vows it was one of the most unforgettable and beautiful moments an audience of family and friends could ever hope to witness. One thing the pictures don't show is Laura wearing Grandma Larson's wedding rings as something old and borrowed. Or that Emily, in spite of what the pictures seem to indicate, was the lucky bouquet catcher! Or the fact that upon meeting Jim's new wife, and hearing her talk about our Mom, we found she was a very nice person and someone who is welcome to the family. Laura personally invited Grandpa Larson and Mai, and Van and Irene, and we were all so delighted they came to share this special family time, also Brian Gaskill, who came from Arkansas. Laura and Chris lit a candle in remembrance of those who are no longer with us, and I am sure more than a few thoughts were on those who couldn't be there for various reasons, but it sure was one great reunion for others. And now, the pictures.....! Don't forget to click to enlarge.
(Note: spacing problems with the pictures seem to be a blog-related glitch.)
