Weddings, Etc.

People come to Wellfleet in September for a variety of reasons. This week we have guests at Chez Sven from England to attend the wedding of their son, a pilot. He had the opportunity to visit the Outer Cape and thought it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen. Therefore, it is here his wedding will take place, today actually, in Orleans. Sven and I agree that Cape Cod is ideal for a wedding. We had a brief ceremony on Uncle Tim's Bridge, a dozen years ago, after a church wedding in Sweden. Wellfleet will soon have a new indoor venue for weddings, with the renovation of Preservation Hall. And, no post on the subject would be complete without a photo of my daughter and her fiance, who will be married Sunday in Lincoln. Below, the happy couple three years ago. I will give a toast at the luncheon, following the garden wedding. Anyone have any suggestions on what to wish the newlyweds?
