Believe it or not, there was an after-party party following the reception. And we slept through it. It’s an advantage of being old. But then we were wide awake and ready to party again at the post-wedding brunch on Sunday morning, hosted by the bride’s parents in their home. I can’t not include a post of pictures from this final family gathering, a bittersweet time of remembering and farewelling. Oh, yes, and . . . bouncing!
