A fine romance

Caitlin and I just returned from a wedding at South Lake Tahoe. The night before the wedding, I took a bunch of pictures of the sunset over the lake, and I think they turned out pretty well.

The bride is the daughter of one of my very best friends, and the tale of how she and her husband met and their subsequent courtship is the stuff romantic movies are made of. They were both at Lake Tahoe to do a Century (that's 100 miles) bike ride for Team in Training, which raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Both of their lives had been touched by leukemia or lymphoma, and Tyson (the groom) gave the "you can do it!" inspirational speech. There was instant chemistry, and by the time they left Tahoe, they had exchanged phone numbers. Many, many long phone conversations later, and only a few visits, they moved in together, and eventually tied the knot.

Abbey's step-father Chris, a lay Presbyterian minister, married them. It was a small-ish and very personal affair, held in a grassy area overlooking Lake Tahoe.

Congratulations, Abbey and Tyson!
