My grandparents Kay and Matt Walsh were married on Valentine’s Day in 1942 and this cute couple adorned their cake. Within a few months my grandfather, who owned Jimmy Ryan’s Dixieland Jazz Club on West 54th Street, was in uniform and heading overseas. These little bisque lovebirds made an appearance at each of their four daughters’ weddings and the third generation of granddaughters continued the tradition. I’ve always thought the groom looked like a dapper New Yorker, like my grandfather. My husband, Joel, and I were delighted that it was present at our own Valentine’s Day wedding in 2010.

Saturday afternoon, my sister and I were walking back from Battery Park with three of the grandchildren.
The kids were running ahead on the Dog Free Zone boardwalk.
We bumped into this wedding party taking photos so we doubled back to the concrete walk along the Hudson River where I took a quick picture.
The female attendants had to be freezing.
The Wedding Celebration on Friday 4-8-16
Saturday night at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard, Austin, Texas. The wedding celebration continues……………..
Champ enjoys being with the bride and groom
Champ is short for Champagne- she’s a girl.
A lucky dog who was rescued from under a bush. Sweet pup!
She was the ring bearer today at the Dulcinea Chapel, Austin Texas –
Anna and Aric were the bride and groom
Champ was a perfect member of the wedding.
A first peek at some of the highlights of Jarrod and Lauren’s Wedding. The weather was cooperative in that the summer thunderstorm didn’t start until they were safely inside the reception. Perfect timing!
Two caricaturists captured the guests happy expressions. The bride had her caricature done by Jeffrey D. Harris at a festival in 2007 or 8 and tracked him down for her wedding. He was assisted by Dave. The bride and groom put their likeness in a frame and all the guests signed the surrounding mat.
Pittsburgh weddings delight in their cookie tables and Jarrod and Lauren’s was something to see! (and delicious to taste)
The bride’s attention to detail was evident throughout the day. A lovely wedding. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. James.

The sun was sinking fast.

Their two dogs are important to them although they didn’t attend the wedding they were featured in the cake topper silhouette.
Working together to get the wedding cake’s first piece out and onto a plate. It’s more difficult than it looks!

Months of planning. Details and lists. Flowers, cake, music, officiant, cookies baked for the cookie table. A lot of work. A lot of love.
Friends and family offering support and cheering the couple on to a happy life together. Relatives travelled from California,Florida, Jersey & North Carolina, Ohio to witness the marriage.
My DIL’s first cousin Matthew married Melissa this evening and I had the honor of being the photographer. Mansions of Fifth was an elegant venue.
Uncle Frank, Aunt Linda and Uncle Donald were the drivers of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars which added a lot to the ambience of the occasion.
A lovely wedding. The rain held off- I had a big golf umbrella with me-
though the clouds looked threatening.
Chas, the shirt PITT shirt vendor, on the corner of Forbes and Bigelow Blvd came to the car window to offer congratulations AND two free PITT T-shirts. And the bride is an alum! Thanks Chas.
Unexpected and fun. Cake decorated by Jordan in the wedding party.
