Wedding day photos

Our two legal witnesses - Rosie Paul (left) and Marian Stanton (right).  All the photos except this one are by Marian, MB's life long friend from Boston-area


Cheering the wedding watchers on Zoom - Rev. Bill Bliss on the right did the service.  He is a long-time friend and co-pastor of the church MB attends

Some of the folks on the call



After being together for the past 20 years Mary Beth Sullivan (MB) and I decided it was time to get married. Due to the virus pandemic we had to do the wedding yesterday on Zoom.

My son Julian and his wife Emily were on (at 2:00 am their time) from Taipei, Taiwan.  Friends from England, Crimea and Malaysia were also on the call in addition to many family and friends from all over the country.

There were a few technical issues as you can imagine with more than 65 different callers trying to get onto Zoom but we muddled our way through it all.

We are grateful to our dear friend, Rev. Bill Bliss who is co-pastor of the Neighborhood UCC church in Bath.  He did a great job.  And we thank MB's lifelong friend Marian for the great photos.

It was a wonderful time for us as we loved seeing so many dear ones again after such a long time of  'social distancing'.

Our next step is a return to Bath, Maine after we sign the papers to purchase a house in that nearby city on June 30.  There are some things that need to be done to the house before we can move in though - it's a 100 year old house that needs a new furnace and changes to some wiring and a bit of paint - move in date for us is July 17.

Thanks to all for the love and warm wishes.

Bruce
