My nephew was married on Saturday down in Vancouver, Washington. The venue was Cape Horn Estate on the Columbia River Gorge, overlooking the river and surrounded by mountains and autumn-colored trees.
It was a lovely affair, simple and elegant. Lots of greenery and white flowers that complemented the country feel of the building.
The photos include one of the couple's first dance, and of the groom's parents, my brother and sister-in-law. My brother's hair has lightened considerably, but it was once as dark as his son's.
White, green and gold. A ceremony filled with personal touches. A delicious meal. Conversations with family whom I see all too seldom. Warmth inside that belied the steady drizzle outside.
And now I'm home again, curled up by the fire with a cup of tea, reliving the moments.
