Thirty years ago, a man and a woman met at highschool. My sister Marilyn, and her friend Don, dated, dated others, married others, and divorsed the said others, and then three years ago, re met at a BBQ.

Today at 3:00 in the afternoon, Marilyn and Don with exchange vows in Vancouver B.C. Then with 14 friends, will be leaving for the Dominican Republic for the honeymoon!

Happy Day Marilyn and Don

Thanks very much Dan!

To please the judges (since I forgot the explain photo). I used three photos. Two at 50%, one at one hundred percent. First later is part of my Sister's invitation, second is of a candle, second of the heart pendant.

I hope this helps! #1092356
