Window into a Wedding, Part II

In the salon, getting prettified, the bride (in the white shirt) and her bridal party are captivated by the "Growing Up" slide show that they are watching between hair-dos. This was a special quiet moment for mother and daughters and closest companions. A look back at all the days that led to this moment.

My dear friend Alison, standing in the back and leaning over, is the Mother of the Bride. She's a happy mama. She's invested so much into her daughters and is so happy to see them so happy.
The bride just graduated two weeks ago, after many years of hard work, from UVA med school with both an M.D. and a Ph.D.. We are all understandably impressed. And all very glad that she's finally got enough time in her packed schedule to marry the man she loves and get her MRS! (silly 50's joke. )

The bride's sister and Maid of Honor is getting married this year, too. Here she provides good cheer and liquid support. That's what sisters are for. They always know what's needed.

And here, a couple of hours later, the happy culmination of all this time, effort, and expense
--the Big Moment!

We did it!!
Let's get this party started!
They are thoroughly enjoying this wonderful set apart moment, for on
Tuesday, her residency begins.

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands and crystal brooks,
With silken lines and silver hooks.
- John Donne
