|Mary and Karima after exchanging vows. How beautiful are these girls. (this photo by Robert Carreon; the rest are mine. Click on photos to enlarge.)|
I have known Mary Healy since before she was born; when I first met TD, Mary's mother Joyce was pregnant with Mary. It has been a pleasure to watch her and her brother Brian, who is marrying his partner Dan next April, grow into wonderful adults.
It's so fantastic now that everyone can get married. We have been happily invited to more weddings than ever before as our young friends and relatives tie the knot, and they are all joyful and all different. This wedding was a heart-felt celebration of two young women with a bright future ahead.
You may recall from Nicole's wedding that the Healys have a great Adirondack-style house called Lakefalls Lodge which is situated on a picturesque pond near Keene, New Hampshire. Nicole's wedding was on a summery Labor Day weekend, but this event was held at the end of September when the autumn leaves were changing colors so it felt like a completely different scene.
When guests arrived we were invited to have a drink and then walk up a grassy path to the site of the ceremony.
Karima and Mary sat down in a pair of Adirondack chairs for a photo op.

But first there were...yes...fireworks.
