Moments from life

Brad’s daughter Brittnee married her husband Jordan in a quiet ceremony a couple of years ago when there was less money and perhaps she was a tiny bit pregnant.  Yesterday, they did it all over again, with all the pomp and circumstance that can be arranged in Madera.

The wedding was held outdoors in a lovely space at the Cru Winery, the reception/dinner was in a large adjoining room.

They had a professional photographer, of course.  I only took a few photos, of particular moments during the day.  Quiet moments that felt meaningful or beautiful, that’s what I want to share with you.


It was a big wedding.  Nine bridesmaids, nine groomsmen and one beautiful flower girl standing attentively with the grown-ups.

Brad has always been a caring and involved father. Kate is right there with him.



Kate loves being a grandmother.  There was plenty of competition to hold the baby, but she was winning.


A very well dressed young man loves his gran.

Styles and traditions change with time.  Instead of a huge formal cake, there were trays of fantastic cupcakes, and a small cake for the bride and groom to ceremonially cut.  I felt compelled to try a couple of different cupcakes so I could report accurately.  They were excellent.


Wedding, dinner, friends and family and we drove home.  Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
