White Lace and Promises

Veronica on her special day
My coworker Veronica got hitched on Saturday.  She's a lovely girl, as you can tell by these photos, and I'm so happy for her and her handsome new husband, Evan.  They make such a cute couple!

The Bride and her attendants.  That's my friend Barbara, Veronica's sister, 2nd from the right
I work with both Veronica and her sister Barbara.  They are both great ladies!  I love them a lot.

The wedding was held in Long Beach.  It was a lovely event.  Barbara was kind enough to sneak me these photos, so we could share in the festivities!

Veronica and Evan plighting their troth
Evan's boss is also a minister, so he performed the ceremony.  It made the event even more personal for the couple.

A quiet moment after the ceremony
Veronica comes from a huge, loving, Hispanic family.  She's the youngest of four girls, and the last to marry.  Her dad is now sighing a long sigh of relief.  (Just kidding!)

The whole family loved Evan from the moment they met him.  He is a great guy.  But then, he's getting a terrific woman!

Waiting for the reception to begin
I love all these impromptu shots, taken with a phone camera!  You can get a good glimpse of what the event was like.   At one point during the reception, Evan brought out his guitar and sang to his sweetheart.  He did a terrific rendition of this Bruno Mars song you've probably heard:

Oh, her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they're not shinin'
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her tryin'
She's so beautiful
And I tell her everyday

Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her, she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look okay?
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are

And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
'Cause girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh her laugh, she hates but I think it's so sexy
She's so beautiful
And I tell her everyday

Oh, you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for, then just stay the same
So don't even bother asking if you look okay
You know I'll say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing

Just the way you are

Way to rack up the brownie points, Evan!  I think you're going to be a great husband!

Veronica and Eva
Best Wishes to Veronica and Evan for a long, and very happy life together!
