The Rehearsal Dinner..........

After the wedding rehearsal we all drove a couple of blocks down the street to a wonderful quaint little Italian restaurant for the rehearsal dinner.

We had 34 people there! This little restaurant is so romantic! It is dark with lots of low lights and candles and fireplaces.

Here's Brittany's father, Moe and his wife Jeanie and next to her is Brittany's sister, Sarina with her husband, CJ and there two children.
These are all Mackenzie and Brittany's fabulous friends who were part of the wedding.
This is Brittany's mother, Patti and her husband, Larry along with Brittany's best friend from when she was a toddler, Bethany and her mother.
My son, Cameron, sitting next to my mother, Shirley and my father, Leonard. To the right is Eric's mother and father, Jim and Alice.
This is the pastor of the church and he officiated the wedding, Danny and his wife Kim and their two kids. Kim was Brittany's mentor at church;she gave her great godly discipleship, training, wisdom and advice!
My parents and Mackenzie's grandparents, Leonard and Shirley. Mackenzie is the first grandchild on both sides to get married!
The bride and groom wispering sweet nothings!
Eric, me and Mackenzie. We had such a lovely dinner. We are so proud of our son and we are so happy for him!
We had a family style Italian dinner and it was just like a large family dinner! We were all talking and laughing and passing food around. It was wonderful!
The food was delicious!!! It was so neat to all be sitting down having a beautiful meal together knowing that these two families are blending! We all got along so well. Every person that was there was there because the love these two people and they are so happy that they are getting married! It was a marvelous celebration!
Eric said a toast to our son and his new bride to be, Brittany! Here's to the bride and groom!
It's all over, time to go home, they kiss and hug and say to each other...............
........tomorrow we'll be married!

"Let us eat and celebrate." Luke 15:23

Love, Sharon
