Jeff’s Wedding

As I stated in my previous post, we traveled to Chicago to attend my cousin Jeff’s wedding.   Jeff is the son of Renee, my mom’s sister who passed away last September.  Her passing has been so hard on all of us.  We knew that it was important to be there for Jeff (and his brother Steve) on Jeff’s special day.  While Renee wasn’t alive to be at Jeff’s wedding in person, she was definitely there in spirit.  I got goose bumps several times- (and cried through the entire ceremony.)

The wedding and reception were at the Rookery Building in Downtown Chicago- it was so beautiful.  IMG_0219

Olivia and Madeline (Steve’s daughters), my 2nd cousins, rang bells down the aisle:IMG_0226

This picture is a little bit blurry… Jeff and Steve are the two on the far left.  Aren’t they handsome?  IMG_0227

It was a beautiful wedding.  We were so thankful that we got to be a part of the special day.  We wish you many many years of happiness and love Jeff and Lesley.
