Say that again
An outdoor wedding always has an unknown element to it. Amazingly, our dog Bear did a great job as the ring bearer and the weather was beautiful.
One of our many memorable moments came from Jim's father, who married us. During the ring exchange, he mistakenly started re-doing my vows. Jim had the perfect comeback: "Dad, I think she meant it the first time."
The laughter that followed just added additional joy to the ceremony.
