Parental Milestone

Mr. and Mrs. Jay Bennett

There is something special about reaching the milestones of life. One of the best is when your children wed.

My oldest son, Jay got married Saturday evening, to Meghann. They were meant for each other. The wedding was at the Dallas Arboretum, one of the most beautiful places in Texas as it is situated on White Rock Lake. The wedding took place at 7:00 p.m., and a cool front had pushed through early Saturday morning, so the evening was perfect. The lighting was incredible - you know, that magic light that occurs at dusk with clear skies and a gentle breeze. It was fabulous.

The bride's family converged from California and Washington, D.C. area, from all over, it seems. Very nice folks, that I am proud to be associated with.

My family came up from Houston/Galveston and we partied all weekend.

Now, Mrs. SWF, who put out a fantastic spread for two days running, can finally get some rest.

It was very nice to be the father of the groom. Jay looked great as did all the groomsmen. Bradzilla and O'Perez did the video shoot, and my good friend TB from Houston, did the photography. I didn't have to take one photo! That was the best part, I could actually enjoy the ceremony and reception.

Mr. and Mrs. Jay Bennett are now in Banff, enjoying the snowboarding and each other. God bless and keep them!
