Wordless Wednesday: Scenes from a Retirement Park Wedding

I'm Baaaacccckk!

Daddy is doing well and STILL NOT SMOKING!!!

Lawd a' Mercy! After a weekend in the Retirement RV Park, do I have fodder for the blog!

Let's start with the much awaited wedding!

It was actually far more tasteful than my mother's original description led on.


The ladies really tried hard to make it nice for their friends!


But maybe the second time around, the bride and groom are a little more...realistic!

It wouldn't be a Retirement Park Wedding without a ride on the golf cart!

I wasn't kidding about the t-shirts, although once they convince the bride to get a dress, the groom gave up his... this is one of the groomsmen!

As always, please excuse the photo quality... a photographer I do not claim to be...add to this taking pictures with my phone for my anonymous blog... well, it's more about capturing the moment than photo quality!

So happy that you had a great time and that your father is doing well!

Just know that I am pulling for him to stop smoking!

Diane said...

So glad he's still not smoking. That is excellent news!

The cake topper is kinda cute but that t-shirt has gots to go! ;)

There is a fun, smart middle school novel, A View From Saturday, that starts out with a great senior wedding. Have you read it? I love it!

Thanks for the reminders!

Yay for the not smoking! My dad had a quintuple bypass, and though he didn't smoke or even drink much, he really used it as a wake up call to make some life changes.

(He was older than your dad, and he was soon diagnosed with cancer, but his body then was stronger to fight that evil stuff--even the doctors said so.)

Glad your father is doing well and you had a fun time.

I've heard about these weddings. Who says we have to be traditional right? :)

Happy to hear about your father, mom.

That topper is too funny.

Quitting smoking is no walk in the park. Loved the blurred photo of the groom.

Looks like a wonderful wedding to me. And love the golf cart--what a nice touch!

Was your father sick? I'm so very sorry to hear that! Off to catch up on you and your blog; I've missed you. XOXO

I love that cake topper too! Looks like everyone made it nice for them which is so sweet! Of course I'm a great fan of "old" love!

I know it's hard to spend that much time away from your kids, but that field trip sounds like such a good thing for those children.

Glad to hear your dad's not smoking! My daddy and my FIL both died from smoking related illnesses.
