A Beautiful Bride

Earlier this year, I wrote about weddings.  Months ago, I was honored to attend another.  My friend, Grace, married a hard working, loving man.  I am so happy for them both, and now, for their little peanut on the way.

At the time, she asked me to compile their wedding portraits into a video for the reception.  What a wonderful memory I’ll have of their beginning.  And, really, their beginnings.  I think my favorite part was seeing their childhood photos.  Here are some insights into Shenyang about 25 years ago, as well as her husband’s hometown in the south of China. Of course, I’m sharing a few of her wedding photos too.  A modified version of the video can be viewed at http://youtu.be/tvw_NG__e2s.  Enjoy.

I started this blog in 2010 as we prepared to move to Shenyang China. Since coming back to the US in 2015, my writing has been less consistent. Trying to find a voice here...
