After the wedding ceremony, while the wedding party was having pictures taken, we were served drinks at an open bar and an abundant variety of delicious hors d'oeuvres.
|I took this opportunity to take photos of our family who came together for the wedding. Here we have my brother-John, his wife-Phyllis and my brother-Tom.|
|My brother-Bob and his wife-Bonnie traveled with us from Beloit, Wisconsin to attend the wedding.|
|My niece, Brittany, drove to Beloit from Appleton, Wisconsin and then rode with her father-John and Phyllis to the wedding in Novi, Michigan.|
|I took several pictures without asking family to pose. I like this one of Tom.|
|Lon and Brittany are happy.|
|Brittany, John and Lon.|
|We were instructed to go to the room where the reception was to be held. After the wedding party joined us, Ryan gave the traditional best man's speech. He did a great job.|
|Drew also spoke. He thanked all of the guests for sharing this special day with him and Tracy.|
|It's time to dance...|
|...and get used to being husband and wife.|
|My brother, Carl, now has two married sons.|
|I like Carl in his tux.|

We all stayed at the hotel where the wedding and reception were held. That worked out well for everyone.
On Friday evening, Pam-Drew's mother, hosted a rehearsal dinner at her home and we were all invited. We enjoyed plenty of food, drinks and fun. It was a lovely gathering on a beautiful evening in Pam's yard.
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS TO DREW AND TRACY, from all of us.
