My Niece Lori Larkin's Wedding
"Rick and I were married on Sunday, November 18, 1984. (I
wasn't even old enough to drink at my own wedding). Rick's Dad
performed the ceremony at the Friendship Baptist Church at 3:00pm. I can't remember
the weather, so it must have been ok. We had about 200 guests and a nice reception at the Quonset Officers Club at Quonset Point.
I was just looking at our wedding album last week. Gosh, we were so
cute! (And young)"
"The song my Dad and I danced
to was Through the Years by Kenny Rogers. I remember he
couldn't hear the words so when we were dancing he whispered in my
ear, 'Sing the words to me.' He was crying."
"We had a harpist at the church who played The First Time
Ever I saw Your Face And the song Rick and I danced to was Blue
Sunday…I think by the Doors. It actually is a love
"After our reception we invited a select few back to our
apartment and had a private party. We left for Mexico two days later and were there
"Fast forward 18 plus years and we are parents, boring,
typical, broke, sometimes stressed, but happy and still very
much in love."
