Wedding Part 2

Yesterday I posted some pictures, here are some of the details. The wedding was in Spokane, Washington at Mount St. Michaels, the church/school where Jason taught a few years ago. The facility was originally a Jesuit center that in addition to teaching, also helped supply Gonzaga University which is in Spokane.

The wedding was small, especially since most of the guests had to come in from all over the country. We were fortunate so many were able to do so and make it special for Emily and Jason. While Sandy and I struggled with our emotions at times during the events of the weekend it was harder a few years ago when we moved Jason to Spokane.

The rehearsal dinner was in a restored mansion that is also a bed and breakfast. The female side of the bridal party had all the rooms reserved so we basically had the whole place to ourselves. The same caterer did both the rehearsal and the reception and the food was excellent.

The reception was at a local winery. It started in the cliff house overlooking the valley before moving to the tasting room. A DJ kept things moving as nearly everyone made it onto the dance floor at some point during the evening.

Jason and Emily are honeymooning in Mexico at a resort called Verana. It looks to be pretty secluded.

We are happy to have Emily come into our family and wish both of them the very best of everything.
