Do you like wedding pictures?
If so, you;ll like this post.
If not, I'll see you tomorrow, because this is a proud dad posting pictures of his daughters wedding.
I uploaded the pictures, fully intending to move them around and put them in order.
After looking at them, I thought it was fun to look at them from my most relaxed and happiest moment at the wedding, down to the night before at the rehearsal, when the tension was obvious.
I hope you enjoy.

Me giving my speech.

My daughter and her boy friend Matt, who took most of these photos.

Me with the Bride Bryn and my wife Mary Ellen.

Left to right, Erin, Bryn, me, Mary and Keely.




Erin, who was the co-maid-of-honor with her sister Keely, was elected to give the speech.
By the way, it was awesome.

The bride Bryn, surprised my wife by playing a song at the ceremony that her mother and father danced to at their wedding. Here, Bryn glances at my wife. She got the reaction she expected. It was a great moment in the ceremony. This may be my favorite photo.


In the limo....nervous dad.


Carly and Danny, Bryns 2 beautiful bridesmaids who weren't sisters.






Of couse, to add to the nervousness of the rehearsal dinner, my battery died before we left the house.

As great as I thought this day was going to be, it was better.
As proud as I thought I was going to be of my family, I was prouder.
I can't put into words what I was feeling this day.
Thay's how good it was.

we don't care what order the photos are in...all that matters is that everyone is happy and from the looks of it, i'd say everyone is spectacularly happy.

congrats to the new bride and groom and to the parents who now have a son :)

I have tears of joy at the whole thing... WOW, you have a beautiful family- 3 gorgeous daughters and a beautiful wife- and a new son-in-law to boot! I was lucky enough this week to revisit the site of our wedding reception, 14 years and 3 days after the day... Loved the re-telling of your day in any order, the emotion shines through, few words necessary :)

How did a guy like you luck into such a lovely wife and beautiful daughters?
Just teasing.
I just returned from a family wedding and can understand how you feel. I cried when my brother-in-law gave his "father-of the bride" speech as did the bride and her sister. Family weddings always stir emotions and strengthen ties, don't they. So glad you all had such a wonderful time!

Wow! Its so great hearing from the Dad for a change. Dads always seem to be quiet and you just ever know what they're feeling especially during their little girl's wedding. You're the best for sharing all that with us. I could just feel that you were so proud of that group. It sounds like youre a tight family. I love that. Debi
