Another Wedding and a Night of Dancing!

Yes, another wonderful celebration of the marriage of a sweet, young couple. Did I mention John and I have been invited to "7" weddings this year. Three of which I have been asked to photograph. (Not this one but I just can't pass up an opportunity to shoot some photos!) Yesterday was the wedding of John's cousin's daughter.
The service
First dance
 The Ceremony
 The two men of her life
 Cousins and Family
How fun to spend an evening with the people you grew up with!  John had the best time and a lot of laughs with his cousins remembering their childhood adventures and antics.  Many stories told before were just as delightful as ever (especially the ones about his older cousins babysitting him).
How did it happen that we are all now becoming the oldest generation???
Wasn't it just a few years ago that we were attending each other's weddings?
An added joy was having our son-in-law's family there too.
That handsome couple in the top right photo are Josh's parents.
The other Poppy and Grammy to Keri, Noah, Silas, Caleb & Cambrie
 
 
 The last dance of the evening, John's cousin grabbed my camera and took this shot of us on the dance floor. It is a little flashed out but still special to me.
My beloved danced, not just every slow dance but almost every fast dance with me.
I am so in love with him!
No matter that our feet and calf muscles are sore today...
last night was perfect!
