 AN EARLY FALL WEDDING--AARON and JOHANNA.........



With the change of seasons comes a day of joy--the wedding of a wonderful couple.....
 The wedding was announced with a whimsical invitation featuring a design of triangles and cording.....

 And we have anxious for the big day to arrive....

 And now it has--on a crisp blue-sky-day with an archway of triangles and cords welcoming the guests....

 And a festive altar festooned with flowers awaiting the ceremony.....

 The guests are arriving at Emilia White Park....

 On a truly perfect afternoon....

 In the cool of the late afternoon shadows....

 Some guests sport the most elegant of footwear...

 And the finest of hand embroidered trim....

 Here comes the bride down the long wooded arcade....

 In fact, here come all the bridesmaids too....

 It is a very long arcade....
 And it is also a VERY radiant bride.....
 Johanna's dad joins her from the other long arcade....

 "Goodbye, Daddy" and "I love you".....

 And the ceremony begins.....
 Blessed by a most adorable and most professional ring bearer.....

 "No, not yet!" cautions the Best Man.....

 Even the bride cracks up over the over-anxious ring boy.....
 Finally, the time is right!!
 A sip from the Wedding Vase on a golden afternoon.....

 With Drew looking on.....

 "I do!", "I do!"...........
 Presenting the new Mr. & Mrs. Boland.................

Forever and ever.....

 As the bride and groom depart in their limo, the guests dawdled about.....

 Enjoying the last beams of sunlight of the day before parting to the Railyard Reception...

 Where with love, faith and trust--not to mention a little sprinkling of fairy dust--the Bride and Groom are ready to greet their guests.....

 The inside has been transformed into an enchanting and magical space--all in keeping with the themes of the wedding....
 Even the signature drinks of the evening are in the colors of the bride and groom...
 A warm greeting....
 The cocktail party space was separated by these corded screens from the dining-dancing area, but with the generosity of the open bar, the cocktail party continued all night.....
 The tablecards....
 The appetizer tables....
 The table settings resplendent with fresh flowers, succulents, modern art and two bottles of wine per table....

 A trusty bartender...
 Triangle embellishments over the dance floor.....
 The Photo booth arrangement.....
 There were college professors in attendance....

 And movie stars too..........

 Everyone wants in this picture.....

 And you know that little Charlie is not about to miss the party.....

 They're still newlyweds too.....

 If there's music and dancing, Franette is sure to be there.....

 The Bride and Groom "elect"....

The groom and groomsmen cover up the whole Photo Booth space......(Michael Woo--the gauntlet has been thrown, you and your groomsmen better start practicing!)

 Something very hairy this way comes.....

 And the "harriness" is apparently is contagious....

 As are the zany antics....

And the dancing....
 All I can say is that it made one old man very happy.....

A spirited Conga Line.....

 The bride and groom trip the light fantastic....

 And an older couple hobbles along (photo courtesy of Frannie)

 It is a night to celebrate.....

 And to cheer for old friends....
 Kissing Baby Blue Eyes....
 And she means every word of it!....

 So, along with Santa Fe's most glamorous couples....

We'd like to thank you, Johanna and Aaron for including us in your fabulous celebration and for re-affirming for us once more the beauty and joy of TRUE LOVE!!
WISHING YOU A LIFETIME OF LOVE AND HAPPINESS!!
