Wedding shower photos: Part I | Part II | Part III

Liz's Wedding shower was held on a seasonble afternoon just after Thanksgiving, 1999. In attendance were a stunning assemblage of family friends (and even some men!). Click on a photo to enlarge it.

There are approximately 80 photos, and there is a "highlight reel" of fewer photos, for anyone who would like a sampling of the experience.

These photos depict the beginning stages of the gift-giving marathon.

One final present, and one more giant ribbon to hurdle. (Someone told Liz that every ribbon broken opening a present meant a child later on! As a result, she was VERY VERY careful opening the presents, but this one had a heck of a ribbon on it!)

Liz is . . . a tad surprised to discover what she's going to say on her Honeymoon! ("There was some fear of leakage" and "I always need something like this to get me up in the morning.")
