It is a difficult thing, for a man to give his daughter away.
Yes, I cried.  I was holding up quite well until she put that dress on, and I lost it.




Ain't she pretty ?



It was a wonderful day

 What he said.

Good on you, RD, as you obviously chose well.  You also did well in raising such a fine person.  I wish the happy couple many more years of happiness.

Just tell her not to push him off a cliff.  If it needs doing, there are others who would gladly prevent her from ruining her life.  :)

Congrats.  I cried at both my son's weddings.  My wife stayed dry-eyed which is surprising since she's the emotional one.

Congratulations and best wishes to the couple.  I remember when my daughter got married (their 7th anniversary is this Sat)  Talk about a time of mixed emotions.  I'm sure he's a great guy but no where good enough for your daughter.  Of course, no one is. :D

Wow, what a lovely young lady.  I'm dreading the day I have to give my daughter away.  She's only 17 now but it crosses my mind every now and again that it may happen.

My wife told her to get her college degree first then look for a husband.  She said don't make the same mistake she did and marry a charming guy with a great personality, good looks and a hot body.  My daughter said, "I didn't know you were married to someone else before daddy."  :p

On second thought, maybe her getting married is a good thing.  :D

Thank you everyone for the congratulations and well wishes.
It was a very special day.

Those two will send a very long and happy life together.  They are desperately in love with one another. You can see it by simply watching them together.

The son-in-law really is a great guy...and he is a brewer.

Outdoor ceremony at the Silver Pick Lodge (a couple hundred yards down the hill from the entrance to Durango Mountain ski area).  The venue was superb, the weather perfect, the ceremony and party(s) were grand...all will live fondly in my memory from that day forward.
