Virginia & Jacquie's Wedding

09-09-09

 

 

Virginia & Jacquie were married on Wednesday, 09/09/09, in our sunroom/atrium.  Craig Hirshberg, who officiated at Skip's and my wedding 10 years ago, performed the ceremony. Skip and Lisa were attendants. Jacquie's daughter, Tiffany, and her son, Jeff, and his wife, Gerri, also attended.  I was the photographer.  After the ceremony, we went to dinner at Maggliano's in Bridgewater.

 

 

Equal Marriage *may* come to NJ by the end of this year!

 

The first pictures are setting the stage.  There were 3 vases of flowers that Virginia & Jacquie brought over earlier in the day.

 

Here's the second vase.

 

And the third vase, in front of the burlap-covered gift Skip and I had wrapped for them.

The rings...

 

Lisa and Skip. The blurriness is my fault, not the wine.

 

The garden statue. Mouton moved, which is why her head looks cut off.

Virginia and Jacquie are admiring the crystal bowl that Lisa gave them.  Sorry for the blurriness.

 

Yes, Virginia did wear heels.

 

The corsages weren't supposed to be afterthoughts...

The delicious chocolate cake that Virginia and Jacquie brought to the restaurant. There were too many reflections to use the flash, so this was done by hand and it was a long exposure!
