The Wedding Mass has just ended. Heading to the reception in a while. Thought I’d post a few (the only few I have) photos. Ceremony went well. Different to home in some ways but the same in the central ways so was comfortable enough.
Three Grandmothers and one Grandfather were there. Sarah’s Grandmother was married for sixty-five years – her husband died about two years ago. Ben’s paternal grandparents will be married sixty years next month so all points towards a long and happy marriage.
Later in the day I went to Ben and Sarah’s Wedding Reception. A very lively affair – music and dancing accompanied the food throughout. People wanted to dance and they did! I met a good number of the guests and it was good to have some time with them. Among them, I met more of my cousins and was at table with Barbara McDonnell, her daughter Teresa Ganly and her daughter Jennifer. Also at table was John and Diane Gaffney, Diane’s sisters, mother and brother-in-law. Certainly I felt I was treated as family. Borrowing from the movie title of some years ago, John referred to me as “my cousin Vinny”!!
