We visited with the parents and with other members of both families and we can tell they are very, very happy about the marriage of these two fine young people.
We attended the reception, held down in Manassas, Viriginia, south of DC, that same day. We met and talked with a number of interesting people, both at the Temple and later at the reception. It was a very special, long, but most enjoyable day.
Before we left the reception to make the drive back to Bedford Lynette insisted on a picture, making the line wait while we had this picture and several others taken.
We had come to the Temple to attend the wedding of our dear former Colorado Denver North missionary, Sister Lynette Noonan. She had kindly extended an invitation to us to attend not only the reception but to be in the Temple with family and close friends for the sealing ceremony itself.
We were very pleased and excited to accept this invitation and to receive permission from our Mission President to make the trip, which is outside our Mission boundary.
It was a beautiful, spring day in the Washington area, more like a summer day we were told, with temperatures in the high 80's.
