Wedding on Day Before Lockdown

Yes, we all are living in WEIRD times...
Both of us dancing at a wedding on March 14...
Yep, that was the day before the official lockdown.
Big gathering at Church and later for dinner and dancing.
Just a WeFie attempt...
For sending to our daughter Anita in Indonesia.

  4. Dear Mariette - how fortunate that the bride and groom managed to have their wedding on the brink of lockdown. Many other couples have been greatly disappointed that their weddings have been cancelled. You both look as if you are really enjoying yourself - a happy occasion for you both to look back on - yes, these are weird times. Are you still in lockdown in your area?

    1. Dearest Rosemary,
      Oh, how fortunate the couple really was indeed.
      Yes, in our area it is still partial lockdown.
      We just got back from three nights at the Hyatt Place.
      They don't serve their usual hot breakfast, the kitchen is not open at all for ordering Galley Food.
      We could however walk to a close by restaurant for dinner and we had things from home for breakfast. A fridge in the room made that very well possible.
      Being at the pool by yourself makes you feel weird indeed.
      But we enjoyed this relaxing time!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    What a good looking couple you and your husband are! I do love your Escada pant suit. That must have been some fine wedding. The venue there looks so elegant.

    1. Dearest Betsy,
      Thank you and that Escada pant suit I snatched up on eBay, a size 4 always stays long!
      It was a very fine wedding, Church filled and afterward all went well.
