YES! Wedded Bliss! And the story of a magic day.

The El Morro Masterpiece Motel where D&A had the Honeymoon Suite. However due to the less than one month lead time on making arrangements, they could get the Honeymoon Suite only for the night Before their wedding, but hey, all the better for us because then we could all enjoy it!

Liz taking pleasure in the autograph book where previous guests had written entire essays extolling the wonderful times they had spent in the Honeymoon Suite.

Here's the somthing borrowed - my grandmother's fabulous and historic ring. The ring I got without any issue with my sisters because my mother lost her engagement ring, the ring she had promised me... and there's more! A nice story for another day.

Getting ready...

...OK, let's go get married!

The entirely perfect chapel, accessed through the coolest little book shop, and that's me getting a headstart on the video!


This guitar player was The Music and he was perfect. Without any real instruction from D&A he played song after perfect song in perfect tempo and tone for every phase of the event. What a guy, really!

Everyone's face hurt from all the grinning.

With this ring...

Mr and Mrs Darryl Kanouse!

The wedding party. We're talking one gorgeous bride and groom and a perfect ceremony to unite them in marriage. We rang bells and put a blessing on their head!

My daughter-in-law! How lucky am EYE!!

And Lizzy has a son-in-law!

Darryl and his dad...

...and his mom.


It was a breathtakingly glorious day.

A wedding still life.

Is this a bride or What!?!

Even a bride has to answer the call of nature.

Beautiful Everywhere!

We had lunch at the Morro Bay Inn in the state park which was perfect too. Perfect perfect perfect. Darryl has said many times every day since of the new year that he had never before even imagined there could be such a perfect day.

We had the corner spot with comfy chairs and a couch, the fireplace, windows to the sea. Oh yes, perfect.

More of the Bride and Groom. You really can't get too much of the Bride and Groom!

Cynthia was the Best Man and the Maid of Honor. She was entirely over the moon and as perfect as all the rest.


The farewell...

Bon Voyage for today and for the rest of your wonderful lives!!

And back at the hotel for a final goodby.

Here's one of Angela's shots from the next day where of both D&A report that they had the second most magnificent day of their lives.

Here's to True Love!!
