A Nautical Wedding!

I'll never forget Greg and Rene's wedding aboard the Nautica Queen! The day before we had a terrific picnic at their house. Here are some photos:

Auburn, who is the Groom's niece, is also Jeff's daughter.

Bob, standing, is a friend of the family and no relation. Next to him is Greg, the Groom, who stands with his Mother, Nancy, and the Bride's sister Roberta.

Auburn with Dakota, who is Rene's son.

In the foreground is Susan, who is my husband's sister, talking to Jim, who is my husband's brother. Jim, who is Nancy's husband, is the Father of the Greg, the Groom.

Jim and I share a laugh.

Dennis is also one of the Kennedy brothers and is famed for his consumption of coffee.

Greg shoots the breeze with cousin Scott, in the red striped shirt. The other person is a friend of the family.

Greg looks so relaxed here!

Scott and his family: his wife Heidi and their child, Lyric. They sit with uncle Jim, but Scott's mom is Susan.

Jim looks relaxed for the father of the Groom!

I asked my husband to take a photo of the whiteboard in the kitchen because it will never have these notes again!

We all wait in the lobby of the hotel to go to the wedding [l to r: brothers Chris & Scott, Heidi, Jim, Rene's friend, Greg, Auburn, Nancy, Jeff and me].

The Captain reads the wedding ceremony to Greg and Rene.

The wedding vows!
The exchange of rings!

I greet the newly weds!

The wedding was held the same day as the Cleveland Air Show, so the Navy Blue Angels did their thing right after we were fed! My husband got the most fantastic photos of them as they flew all around and right over the ship! The noise of their engines was deafening.

 Care to shake hands with the pilot?

Me with Scott, Greg and Jeff.

Here are some videos that I took with my iphone:

How cool was that to have the airshow going on at the same time as the wedding. Great pics and it looks like it was a good time in CLE. Thanks for the link to this blog that I didn't know about.
