I don't quite understand why, but the colors in that first picture drew me to it. It was a kind of mindless attraction. I clicked on it so I could examine the whole thing over and over.

Wish I could have been there, Jo, but, as always, you provide wonderful photodocumentation of the event! Many thanks for the incredible pictures!
Looks like a nice time and the marina is just lovely.
What a beautiful spot for a ceremony. It must have been quite moving.

Ratty, the same thing happened for me. I didn't intend to take the photo but when I looked over the colors and details were just so inviting I had to get a photo. thank you.

Carmen, Thanks.

Walk in the woods, thank you and the marina is gorgeous.

Mountain Woman, It was very moving and stirred many emotions. Thanks for stopping by.

Holly, yeah, the weather certainly cooperated for most of the day.

Icy, thanks so much.

I wished I had a chance to join in the festivities. "The Big Rumble" how appropriate for such an occasion.
