After doing Melodie's slideshow, I decided I better work on Vanessa and Danielle's! I'm still working with Aperture learning a little more every time. I like how easy it is to just use the pictures I've already rated to quickly set this up,  but think I'm going to keep trying different platforms to do this. The text on the slides was pretty touchy and I had to keep trying to make them line up right.

Have to admit, it sure brings back good memories to be working with these pictures! Weddings are such a time of joy, love and fun. They celebrate not only the couple getting married, but the community that they belong to. It was so wonderful to have out of town guests, family, friends and even teachers come to Vanessa's wedding. I am always so grateful for everyone that comes, they truly have been a wonderful influence on my family in one way or another. So even though weddings are a lot of work, they are so worth it in the end. This video is made from the stupendous wedding pictures that Russell and Jennifer McCue took!  I plan on putting together another one of the actual reception because I don't want them to be too long.

So, this is for my Vanessa and thankful for these two!!

I'm working with Aperture's slideshow feature and was really happy with how this slideshow of Kevin and Melodie's wedding turned out. These pictures by Carol Kerfoot of KaceyJane Photography were so stupendous. We loved them and were so amazed by them. Carol did a fabulous job!

This is Kevin and Melodie's wedding song, "Forever and Ever, Amen" by Randy Travis.

Next will be pictures of the reception....

Well it was certainly a quiet Halloween last night at our house although we had a record number of kids at the door! Mitchell had decided not to go trick or treating to my surprise! So he stayed home with me and let me answer the door, even though it was often a group of cute girls hoping to catch a glimpse of him! Thank goodness Melodie stopped by and told him to come trick or treating with her. So he quickly threw on a pink cowboy hat, pink bandana and his BB gun and off they went. I think Melodie was glad she grabbed this wig because it made it hard to guess how old she was...apparently she hadn't been trick or treating in about 8 years. He came home a happy boy with a bag full of treats, just enough to be fun but not so much to be sick!

So there you go Mitchell....I know it's hard to have 4 sisters, but they do come in handy sometimes.

By the way, I couldn't post the pink...a cowboy needs to be country, in sepia...
