The Ceremony

(At the very moment Loretta started up the aisle, the battery died on my camera!  Crucial moments in my great photo-taking career have been punctuated by dead batteries.  Thankfully, I had a spare in my purse so, 15 minutes into the ceremony, I resumed the clicking....)

The setting was perfect...

A special reading by Sophie and Sasha..(if you look closely you will see a very proud father in the background)

They are a very striking couple (even if I do say so myself).

Loretta was absolutely beautiful and clearly Ron agrees.

(The Clooneys would be so envious)

Two dolls...

Loretta's family--Vanessa, Ron, Loretta, Albert, Lily and John

Ron's family--Janice, Loretta, Ron, Me and Jo

Jenna, Sasha, Loretta, Ron, Sophie and Joe

Bride, groom, Robin and John

Raymond, Christine, Loretta, Ron, Elva and Don

(For readers of this blog who may not know the relationships-- Ron was age 7, and his sister Janice was 6 when they joined my husband Roger, our son Tom, and myself through adoption.  The above picture includes another sibling, Christine, with her son, Raymond; but also, Ron's and Janice's 'birth' mother, Elva and her husband, Don. This event was the first opportunity I have had to meet Elva in all these 40+ years.)
