Schappi-Fuller Nuptials: More Fun than Any Wedding I've Attended!


My granddaughter Emily was married on Saturday, March 29, to Jerrod Fuller. The wedding ceremony was held in the United House of Prayer for All People, Baltimore, MD. A fabulous time was had by all.

I'll keep the narrative to the minimum, and let the photos tell the story.

The Procession at the Church
Jerrod's parents led off the procession, followed by this couple:


I was delighted when Emily asked me to escort her wonderful foster mother Carolyn down the aisle. The cap covers my heavily bandaged forehead after recent skin cancer surgery.

The flower girls, my great (truly great!) granddaughters -- Kenzie and Kaylee:


Here comes the groom. Jerrod struts his stuff:


Everybody awaits the bride.  


The young lady front and center is Jerrod's daughter, Jasmine. Standing behind Kaylee is Jessie, the bride's older sister and flower girls' mom:

The Marriage Ceremony
You know the drill. I needn't narrate.








Then, the Formal Pictures





This one's my favorite, of course:


To the Reception, and a More Informal Procession.
You know the cast of characters by now.






Now -- Eating, Dancing and Lots of Laughing
Here's the Schappi family table. My daughter is on my right, and my grandson  and his girlfriend are on my left. In the back are  the sons of Todd's companion Jill:


After dinner, dancing predominated. I loved Jerrod's dances with his elegant mother and his terrific daughter:




The partying lasted much longer than I did. Time for the old man to say good night:


Let's end where we began, with Emily and Jerrod:

Another addition to the Family
I saw my new great-grandson Camden for the first time at the wedding reception. He was born on Christmas Eve, the start of a major family expansion. Here he is last Saturday at a family gathering at Todd's house. He's being cuddled by his great-aunt and his sister Kaylee:


The way the family is growing, Todd and Jill will need more picnic tables:
