The Wedding

Our niece, Kathy Lawrence got married on Saturday July fourth. It was an outdoor wedding held at the Greystone Mansion Wedding Venue near Honor, Michigan. Kathy is the daughter of Teddy's sister Deborah and her husband Dr. Fred Lawrence. The groom was Ian Camp who with his parents, Elaine and Richard Camp, emigrated to the US from England when he was very young so the other side of the aisle was packed with visitors from the UK.

An unusual aspect of the wedding which I had never seen was the "sand ceremony" in which the Bride & Groom co-mingled two different colors of sand to represent the blending of the two families.

After the ceremony the guests were treated to a buffet dinner...

...followed with an evening of celebration in Greystone's spacious ballroom.

Followed by the obligatory dance. :-)

As I write this, the happy couple are now somewhere in the Caribbean enjoying a honeymoon cruise.
