Kris and Shannon's wedding

May sure has been a busy month for us. Kris and Shannon's wedding was at North Topsail Beach on the 23rd and many people stayed on for most of the week. Lisa, Jack and I stayed until Saturday.

It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. Most everything went off without a hitch. The wedding was on the beach and we had perfect weather all week. The only rain came when we were pulling out of the driveway to come home.

Kris and Shannon had rented two huge houses, about 10 houses apart, each with its own elevator. We could not have survived the week without those elevators.

The newlyweds are now in Rome and leave for a 14 day Mediterranean cruise. Kris starts his residency at Johns Hopkins later this month.

Enjoy the pictures.
