Walter and a Tremblay Wedding: Guest Post by Walter

Hello Everyone, 

It's me Walter, again.

I was fortunate enough to attend two out-of-state weddings with the Bock's this year. This is the story of the most recent one, this past September. (I finally get to post this, I've been nagging Caroline about posting this, but she has been a little busy recently.)


There I am all suited up and in my new and roomier travel accommodations ready for the flight down to Atlanta.


It was a long journey, the hotel room was much needed before the wedding activities started.


The next day started by hanging out with the girls at the bridesmaids luncheon.



More time at the hotel with my favorite girls before the rehearsal dinner.


Rehearsal at the church.


The big day is here. I'm so excited!!!!


I have a special connection with the groom, Eric. He is the one that introduced me to the Bock family. So happy for this couple, fun times on the trolley. The reception was a great time too.


Later I went out to the bar with the bride and groom. What a day. Thanks to Eric & Megan for inviting me to their wedding. 

Where will the Bock family take me next.

Signing off for now,

Walter
