Photo of the Week: Happy Couples

My father-in-law is a closet romantic. He planned & successfully executed a vow renewal ceremony & after-party (at their house) as a surprise to my mother-in-law for their 30th Anniversary. Fifty of their closest family & friends joined them at the church they married at thirty years ago, with the pastor (now retired) who married them, & their closest friends - several from out of town - who stood up with them on their wedding day. Momma Mac didn't know what hit her.

Matt happened to be in town for a dental school interview, so he got to be in on the secret & help his dad pull off the big day. What Dad Mac didn't know was that Matt & his brother, Tommy, were also pulling a fast one on him. Tommy & his girlfriend  fiance, Caroline, flew in to surprise Mom & Dad and to announce their engagement! Tom proposed the Thursday before & managed to keep it a secret from his folks until he walked out of the church to greet them as they arrived. Matt & Tommy walked their teary-eyed momma down the aisle. Is that not the sweetest?

Congratulations, Mom & Dad, on 30 years of marriage! 
Congratulations, Tommy & Caroline, on the beginning of a wonderful journey ahead!
