Wedding Bells Are Ringing

What a spectacular weekend. Our very good friends Stephen and Sylvia tied the knot in South Lake Tahoe. Peter and I drove up on Friday to join the wedding party for the rehearsal dinner. The lake was calm and the sky was blue Enjoy some pictures of a fabulous evening. The food and drinks were great and it was fun to visit with all the other guests who came up for the wkd.

What a great picture...Beth, Stephen, Sylvia, Peter, Theresa and Eric. What great friends we have!!Say Hi to Trang, Andrew and sweet little Alyssa. What a beautiful Family and they will soon be welcoming another little one!!The Bride and Groom to be...Happy Faces.

On Saturday Peter and I took the Gondola to the top of Heavenly Ski Resort and took in the beautiful sites. We went to up 9000 feet. I'm not a skier, so it was really up there for me. I think to see it with all the snow would be great too.


So, off to the Edgewood for an evening wedding. It was breath taking and I have to say a few tear were shed by me. Stephen and Sylvia were surrounded by friends and family from here to Vietnam. They were blessed to have the ceremony performed by a special family friend, Jana, who had many heart felt words for the bride and was truly memorable. After the wedding ceremony the couple and the families participated in a Asian tradition of a tea ceremony. Tea is served to the elders of the familyby the bride and groom and the elders bestow good wishes and life advise to the married couple. Certainly a memorable moment for the bride and groom.
Some big smiles from the guests

The reception was super fun!! The dinner was delicious and the cake was out of this world...RED VELVET cake is my new favorite. And we danced the rest of the night to work off all the calories. The bride and groom changed in to traditional chinese dress for the dance. I love a good costume change!! hee hee.

lots of good dental work....sparkling smilesOMG...the cake! The bride poses for the camera with Rick and Cathy

We are truely blessed to have been part of a very special weekend and wish the happy couple a life time of happiness. We can't wait to hear all about the honeymoon in Argentina
