I am thankful that I had waterproof mascara at Katharine and Kevin’s Glen Manor wedding. If not for waterproof mascara, I would have spent the day looking like a raccoon for all the tearjerker moments! The flood works started during the ceremony when Katharine and Kevin’s fathers sang an adorable rendition of That’s What Family’s For, a play on That’s What Friends are For. The tear inducing serenades continued at the reception when Kevin’s grandfather sang an impromptu song to the newlyweds. Kevin’s grandfather and grandmother have been married 61 years!
Katharine and Kevin’s vows to each other were the biggest sob-causer. Kevin told Katharine that he would be, “Thankful for you,” and “Thankful for us,” every night when he meditates on what he is thankful for. I think any husband who ends his day thinking how thankful he is for his wife and his life is in for a long and happy marriage. I wouldn’t be surprised if they topped 61 years!
The excitement that Katharine and Kevin felt in marrying each other was palpable and it was such a pleasure to snap one happy photo after the next.
I don’t normally post two photos so alike, but I couldn’t resist this fabulous spontaneous laugh from Katharine!This photo is in my mind, perfection. Classic, dramatic, full of love. This one deserves a place of honor and some wall space!The day wasn’t all tears! Major laughs for Kevin’s break out dance moves!
