Boy do I feel like the summer went by so quickly.  Although it is nice to enjoy 70 degree days there is something about summer.  Dawn & Ted were married on the very last day of August and it did feel like summer.  Warm winds blew, the sun sparkled off of the water and everyone enjoyed the evening view of downtown on the patio at the Marriott Briarcliff.

Ted & Dawn have already been a family for quite some time with their 3 girls, but this day was the day to make it official and dance the night away :)

I will start with Dawn’s beautiful dress and of course plenty of her with her beautiful girls :)  Seriously….they make pretty babies :)
