Michelle and Stephen
Michelle and “Cubby”
After hair and makeup at the family home, the bridal party finished getting ready at the church preschool.
Here Michelle’s dad, Bill, is giving her away.
Side note: Mom and I sing with Bill in the Rancho Bernardo Chorale.
Before Bill carried on the English tradition of singing to his daughter during the ceremony, he explained that he commissioned this special song “Michelle” written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney years ago to be used for this very occasion. Not only is Bill quite the crooner, he also has a fantastic sense of humor. More importantly, he adores his little girl. I definitely have a soft spot for anyone who treasures his daughter as much as this man does.
The unique bouquets and flower arrangements were absolutely perfect.
Michelle’s parents, Bill and Yvonne, celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary on the same day. Congratulations!
You two really are such a great couple. I’m so happy to know you.
“Daddy’s Little Girl”
An anniversary gift for Yvonne.
Eva teaches family visitors from England a few new moves.
I noticed during the last song that Michelle plucked the petals off a rose. While I was off in the distance and am not positive what this was all about, I can go out on a limb and say that yes, he does indeed love you. :-)
To Bill: Thank you so much for reaching out to us. I am well aware of the fact that we would never have had the opportunity to meet Michelle and Steve if it weren’t for you. If I learned anything about you by spending this time with you and your loved ones it is that family is precious to you and I am honored to have had the privilege of helping to document such a special day for your family.
And once again, thank you Michelle and Steve for letting us into your lives to help capture these beautiful memories. Amy and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with you and we wish you the happiest of lives together.
