John and Kathy Parker Wedding Video

(posted 11/5/2013) - First a happy birthday wish to my wonderful wife, Pat... we're now both eligible for Medicare! I guess that makes us special (or just old)...

We got back Monday from Seattle where we attended daughter Kathy's wedding to John Parker. We both had such a great time; Pat arranged a weekend rental of a 5-bedroom house just 15 minutes from the wedding venue. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing?

The Wallaces (1st and 2nd generations), Grobes, Sorianos, and Barbara Ward all stayed under one roof (across three floors). Our grandkids were there, as well as our grand-niece Aanya. It was so much fun visiting with everyone and babysitting the kids.

Click on the image to view the wedding ceremony video (its a flash file about 50 mbytes long - low resolution) which captures a moving monologue and John and Kathy's vows). The wedding ceremony took only 10 minutes; but the celebration went on far into the night!

I plan to post more video links and photos as I get a chance to do some editing and compositing -- lots of really good material from the reception. A number of folks had cameras and we've been promised a copy of the wedding photographer's images as well.

OK, here's a link to a 25 Mbyte flash video file of the post wedding partying. Lot's of folks dancing and having a good time. Payton was really into the music ...

I've collected several photos I took which represent the families pretty well I think. You can see a larger version by clicking on the small images on this page. Enjoy ....
