[Overlooking Casco Bay, Harpswell Neck, Maine, Sunday, September 19, 2010]

Our daughter, Elizabeth, was married at my sister’s summer home on Harpswell Neck. “Lizzie” had been visiting Maine every year since she was a toddler, so it didn’t come as a complete surprise that she wanted to get married there.

The wedding ceremony was held right at the edge of the water. To get there, Lizzie and I had to walk down a long grassy slope, and a (minor) concern was not slipping and falling.

My nephew, Matt, actually took this picture, although it was a collaboration. In the grand tradition of “point and shoot,” I adjusted all the settings, namely, “on” and “automatic.”

After the ceremony, we held a reception on the lawns and, later, climbed the slope for a seated dinner in the art gallery. It was a magical evening.

The two links (below) express some of my feelings as the father of the bride. Lizzie has been the source of so much joy and fatherly pride.

This is the last in the series. I want to thank everyone for stopping by.

    A memorable moment for any father! You look so handsome, and Lizzie....well, beautiful hardly begins to describe her. Thank goodness you were able to use your expertise in getting the camera settings just right for Matt! Thank you for sharing these wonderful wedding photos; I've enjoyed every one of them, as well as your delightful narratives.
