The day you’ve all been waiting for….Andy and Joyce’s wedding day!!
We had a wonderful time celebrating with the couple.
The bride wore a lovely dress, overlaid with lace and a short train. And the groom looked mighty dapper in his suit.
Andy was beaming from ear to ear the whole day. 🙂
Exchange of rings.
The reception was at the Old Silk Mill in old town Fredericksburg. (The interior reminded me a bit of the Old Sugar Mill where we had our wedding reception. 🙂 )
Each table displayed a photo of the couple from some memorable moment in their lives.
The wedding party made a grand entrance by couple….
…followed by Mr. and Mrs. Andy Bodoh!
The maid-of-honor and best man gave beautiful toasts to the bride and groom, sharing anecdotes from their times together.
I knew the groom (Steve knew Andy in law school — small world! — neither of us had met Joyce before, but had heard many great things about her from Andy!) and the best man, Dan, in college. He shared about how Andy never dated anyone in undergrad (it’s true! — but was always gracious to all his women friends), because deep down, somehow, he knew the one who matched his heart wasn’t there. Very sweet words, Dan!
Andy and Joyce first dance together was beautiful.
And Andy watched admiringly close by as his bride danced with her father.
At one point, the couple was serenaded by older members of their families.
The getaway car was thoroughly decorated by the wedding party (they actually got the couple’s other car too!).
We had a great time catching up with many of my college friends and Steve’s law school buddies.
Evey took a particular liking to Lizzie (and her scapular). 🙂
We even managed to get a photo of Stephen and I together at the wedding (thanks, Colin!). 🙂
And, of course, Evey and Daddy. <3
