1,000 Words: European Wedding


This picture was taken on the island of Terceira in the Azores in 2007.   The reception was held at a very old monastery and we entered a magnificent courtyard where cocktails and appetizers were served before dinner.  I remember feeling like I had stepped back in time into the opening scene of The Godfather at the wedding reception of Don Corleone's daughter.  It was magical. We had a wonderful trip but this evening was the highlight.  We made memories with our children that will last a lifetime.  Sierra had just graduated from high school and Steel had just finished his first year in high school.  They weren't children anymore and we did grant them a few "extra" privileges on this trip.  Just thinking about that night brings smiles to all of our faces.  The Americans certainly left an impression with the Azorean guests.
