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, anyway, she was able to wear a beautiful dress from the best wedding shop.  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.


Checking in with mommy.


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.
