sunday afternoon abstracts

Went out for a drive this afternoon and made a few stops along the way, Ritters for some hand-picked Cortland Apples, then off to Roba’s to pick up a few pumpkins, then to Mannings for pumpkin ice cream.

Took a few photos of course…

Enjoyed the Cortland apples with caramel dip, wheat puffs and peanuts…

Picked out pumpkins at Roba’s Farm…

…and these were the pumpkins we chose…

Also took a few random photos…

Although I did not take any photos of the wedding itself, I did manage to get in a few photos prior to the wedding. (in chronological order…)

Some photos at Willowdale Estate two days before…

…and the morning of the wedding  🙂

…and later that day…

…and then the professional photographers took over…Check out some of the photos here.


“the wedding”

On this past “Blue Moon” Friday, August 31, Terri and I had the pleasure of a lifetime – watching, experiencing and participating in  our daughter’s marriage to her best friend, Keith, in the most perfect and storybook venue you could ever imagine. Perfection was everywhere – from the co-operation of New England traffic, Mother Nature, Willowdale Estate – the food, service, surroundings were the best we have ever seen, the groom who was beaming with excitement while smiling from from ear to ear, looked spectacular as he paced around the Groom’s quarters, and of course the bride — who was radiant, eleagant and especially beautiful on this, the most exciting day of her life.. Terri and I can honestly say that we don’t believe we have ever seen Renee more happy.

We have so much to be thankful for throughout this event. The entire Wedding was picture-perfect with Mother Nature providing the best possible weather conditions which complimented the ceremony and reception at Willowdale.  And now we have a great son-in-law who comes from a loving and devoted family who has accepted Renee as one of there own as we certainly have with Keith.

Terri and I offer our congratulations and best wishes to our kids, Renee and Keith.

I have posted a few early photos. There will be sooooooo much more to come.
