Bill and Jeanne met at His Hill in Comfort, Texas...and before long the wedding bells were ringing!
They were married in a little country church (with no air-conditioning)...
...with lovely stained glass windows...on a very hot and humid day. And once the vows were said...there were still photos to be taken.
If they all look a little 'under the weather'...it's because they were! Did I mention that it was very HOT?
One of the groomsmen was out cold for a spell...and the rest of the wedding party needed fresh air!
And...for the record...the groom and his lovely bride...along with his parents and five sisters.
The ringbearer could relax with his cousins once his official duties were done.
The reception was a happy affair at a local golf course...in air-conditioned comfort. Their cake really 'took the cake'!

It seems there was not too much action at the bar...and so the groom's nieces decided to swing on the stools for a spell!
It was a lovely wedding...and we were happy to welcome Jeanne into the family. Once all the wedding festivities ended...we still had the problem of getting back to Vancouver on Monday. It was decided that we would send Lucas (my nephew) home with Grandma and Grandpa in the motorhome...and the rest of us would go to the airport and see if we could find a flight home. I should explain that Grandma and Grandpa's motorhome was already quite full to capacity...since my sister and her two pre-schoolers and my daughter (who was seven at the time) had driven out with them. What was one more? I'm not sure my dad is ready to talk about that travel adventure just yet!
On Monday morning we drove to the airport...and were told that United Airlines would take stranded Frontier passengers as they had room. After a few hop-skip-and jump flights...United flew us to Seattle. That was as close as we would get to Vancouver. Because of Expo 86 there were no flights available to Vancouver...where our car was waiting for us. To make a long story short...someone we never even knew came to our rescue and drove us north to Vancouver. Late that night we arrived home...while Lucas was on the bus with his cousins having the time of his life for four more days!
All that happened twenty-five years ago. Today seemed like the perfect day to share a few fun memories!
Best wishes to you both on your 25th wedding anniversary...
and many blessings in the years ahead!
