So without further ado, I post some pictures of this beautiful sacrament, held in the replica of the first mission church (St. Williams) built in Round Rock, TX.
Preparation involved hanging out and playing games. My sister made all the fancy bouquets and bows.
Wedding day meant getting dressed up in all our Indian finery!!! My SIL (in the purple and pink sari) dressed and pinned me so that I could run around taking pictures.
Here comes the bride but I couldn't get a good picture. I hope my nephew's wife got one.
Listening to the Word of God. Readings from Song of Songs and the famous reading from St. Paul's letter to the Corinthians ... the litany of love. The deacon gave a wonderful homily on the meaning of holy matrimony and the choir director, a rich baritone, amazed us with his beautiful singing of Psalm 103 and Ave Maria (the wedded couple's first prayer together as they offered flowers to the Blessed Mother).
Oh, how wonderful it is to be a witness and remember our own wedding vows. Then it was off to the reception.
Since I was in Round Rock for a week, it was a wonderful family reunion. We got to worship together and I also had a chance to visit Agape, a crisis pregnancy center, where my sister volunteers. I only wish all the Bodachs could've come but I know Greg and Suman will make a trip to see us when they get a chance. They are a mite busy right now ... planning their honeymoon in Italy!!!
Mr. and Mrs. Greg Casey, wishing you both a long and happy life together. May you help each other get to heaven! God bless you now and always.
