"W" is For Wedding - the Marriage of Laura Winterhalter to Alexander Vukasinovic, May 7, 2010 - A few more photos for Alphabe Thursday, 6-24-10
I realize, of course, that I already posted some pictures of the wedding of my middle son, Alex, to his beautiful, Laura, in a blog shortly after their May 7th wedding. However, Laura recently sent me several hundred more photographs and, since "W" is our Alphabe letter today, I couldn't resist sharing some of them with you.
I can't believe that this Friday will be SEVEN weeks since the big day. Time goes by so quickly! I haven't even seen the happy couple since then. While they live in West Sacramento, only about 110 miles from San Francisco, time constraints seem to always interfere with our traveling back and forth. Laura works more than full time as a paramedic and Alex works a 4AM to noon shift at his job, then has classes most weekdays. Occasionally, he tries to catch a couple of hours sleep.
These photos include some of the beautiful setting at Scribner Bend Vineyards in Sacramento. It was truly a glorious day but it got chilly after the sun set. I was lucky to have blankets in my car which I got for us to use as wraps!! Of course, the folks who got up and danced didn't seem to be bothered by the drop in temperatures as the night wore on.
