The groom-to-be Ryan Boule and the bride-to-be Erin Canty at the rehearsal dinner.
Each member of the bridal party wore glow in the dark items – tiara for Erin, bracelets for the rest, which made it easy to identify the wedding party. Note Ryan’s bracelet.
Ryan Boule’s mother; Ryan and Erin; Ryan’s brother who was the best man; Bridget Canty, mother of the bride; Ryan Canty, brother of the bride.
Note that the best man and Ryan Canty are both wearing Panama hats. There were about 20 Panama hats. Apparently, Ryan Boule’s father, who died about a year ago, always wore a Panama hat, so the hats were a tribute to him.
Ryan and Erin raise a glass to the guests.
My niece Kathy Canty Brown, her husband Lloyd, and Kathy’s Mom, Pat Canty headed up to South Lake Tahoe on Thursday afternoon where they rented a 5 bedroom house a few feet from the sand of Lake Tahoe.
When they got home from the rehearsal dinner, Kathy says, “There was a 550 pound brown bear on the front porch! Luckily, Lloyd saw it before it saw it before it saw us. – We were only about 15 feet away. We slowly backed away to the car, and called the kids who were in the house and told them not to exit the house. They nervously/excitedly watched the bear throughout the front window, but were so alarmed, they did not take photos. Animal control got involved. This is how we know the suggested weight. MUCH excitement!”
Thanks to Kathy for all of the details and photos of the evening.
