Kenny and Matthew's Wedding

My Hubby's son Kenny was married last weekend.   He and his Fiance, Matthew, live in Boston so the wedding was  held there at the Highball Lounge!!

Hubby and I dressed up for the occasion

The Highball Lounge was just perfect for the cocktail party style wedding Matthew and Kenny wanted.
A big, well-stocked bar

Cozy seating areas where people could just sit and talk

Kenny and Matthew came down early to do family pictures

I created a little added decoration

Both frantically trying to find the wedding consultant!

Kenny nervously contemplating the big event?

Dad trying to put on the corsage?

Checking out where the ceremony will be

All the siblings......Matthew's sister Tricia, Matthew, Kenny, Matthew's brother John, Kenny's sister Wendy and her husband Allan.

Hubby and I with Kenny and Matthew

After the wedding pictures were taken, Hubby and I took a stroll through the Boston Common and the Public Gardens and took a few selfies

When we got back to the venue, the place quickly filled up with family and friends.  Kenny and Matthew entered to a wild cheer from the crowd, much to Kenny's embarrassment!

Matthew choked up a bit when reading his vows to Kenny.......

and then Kenny found it difficult to read his to Matthew!
The vows were beautiful, heart-warming and sentimental.

They sealed the deal with "I DO Shots"

They're married!!

Kenny is welcomed into the family by Matthew's brother, Dad and step-Mom.

Matthew chats with Kenny's cousin, Mandi and Aunt Deb and Uncle Doug.

A Happy Groom!

A wedding dance

And the clinking of glasses is obliged with a kiss.

It was a beautiful wedding.....full of love, happiness and the support of family and friends.   Kenny and Matthew planned the whole wedding themselves.   And it was perfect!
