The story continues with the bride dancing with her daddy. Look closely at dad’s face; see what his expression tells you, then look at the brides expression in the next image below.
Here is the groom with an incredibly big smile on his face watching his new wife dance with her father. This is unusual too as I don't often see a groom so engaged in this part of the event.
And of course, the bride taking it all in along with another family member in the next image below.
Watching the Groom and his mother during their first dance.
Grandma and the bride. This is always one of my favorite sights at a wedding.
Arguably one of the most important attendees at a wedding: An Ambassador of Christ, Father Neil, who incidentally was quite happy that he and I shared the same name. Here he is praying at dinner. Perhaps his presence at this wedding tells a lifelong story about the genuine happy expressions we saw in the pictures.
