On Saturday afternoon, we gathered together again and sang the same hymn, but at a much happier occasion! My brother Mike was married to Kathryn Helder. It was a truly beautiful day, the weather was perfect, sunny and warm, and we could have a happy ending to the week.
Here is the day in pictures....
The handsome groom and his handsome groomsmen
Kathryn's dad handing her off to Mike
My nephew Reuben (the ringbearer) playing with the car the rings were tied in.
My niece, Olivia, the beautiful flower girl
The bridal couple - don't they look happy?
The respective parents doing their toasts
The Dutch Reformed obligatory poem using the letters of "Michael" and "Kathryn" composed and performed splendidly by Tim, Deanna, Bethany and Jeremy.
And one more of the smiling happy couple!
We love you, Uncle Mike and Aunt (for real now!) Kathryn! Have a wonderful honeymoon, and we'll see you when you get back.
