Winter Wedding!

Yesterday, December 29th, David Dowling and Heidi Helgeson wed.The wedding took place at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church in Seattle. The ceremony was attended by somewhere around two hundred guests, maybe more. It was a very nice ceremony.
David is my nephew on my wife's side. Her sister is David's mother! David is 25 years old and a graduate of the University of Washington where he was a pitcher for them for several years. Dave and Heidi met while attending college together!
The Helgeson family is very musical and a lot of singing was enjoyed by all. A special moment in the ceremony was when the pastor invited anyone who would like to, to come up and sing a special song for the newly weds... Needless to say, about 40 of Heidi's family joined them at the alter. The singing was good and Heidi was greatly moved!
The happy couple exited the church under a double row of sparklers, just as David's older brother Brian and his wife Misti had done at their wedding earlier in the year!
A wonderful reception was held on the MV Skansonia Ferry Boat which is docked on Lake Union. It was a grand affair!
No host bar, disc jockey and awesome food! Salmon, Prime rib, salads and the works. A wonderful wedding cake of many flavors.
My family left about 11 pm. The younger generation??? Might still be going strong!:)
