The Flower Girl

.
Dawn's Wedding 2

Both Dawn and Mark have children and they took an active part in the wedding ceremony. Dawn's three daughters were her attendants. Above, Brinna, one of her twins, strikes the perfect pose. Below, older sister Hannah runs with excitement later in the evening.

A few comments to yesterday's post observed that it was unusual for a group of co-workers  to produce a wedding for one of their colleagues, but that's just what happened. The core of us have been together for ages. We genuinely like one another and treat each other like family. Julie and I started the firm 26 years ago. Cindy, my paralegal, has worked with me for 29 years (since late childhood, I believe). The third lawyer, Don, has been with us for - what? - 23 or 24 years. A couple of years after he showed up he married Cindy (Hey, Bob, he's pretty cute. Get him to take me out to dinner.)  but she will only work with me, a difficult but probably wise decision. Joan, Julie's sister, has been her paralegal for 25 years. Dawn has been Don's paralegal for close to 20 years. It's a wonderful experience to work with people like this.

Gorgeous Bob, love the sunflowers, yellow is such a happy colour perfect for weddings and also the yellow dresses. Top portrait is too beautiful and the running shot is wonderfully spontaneous. they must be thrilled to bits.

The whale watching season is from September through to early December Bob (http://www.perth.world-guides.com/perth_whale_watching.html) it's been a few years since I last went, but will definitely go soon, it's such a brilliant experience. If you check out the link will tell you more.

Beautiful girls and you showcased them beautifully on a significant day. Enjoyed the firm's history you provided. Sounds like a good group!

These are great wedding photos.

Congratulations on creating and fostering such a wonderful working group. That is a crucial part of the practice of law that they do not teach in law school.

Now, these are truly lovely! The top one is perfect, the one below is super cool.

Aaaaah, two truly delightful photos, one soft and calm, the other full of joyful action. Dawn is a lucky mum, her daughters are absolutely beautiful.

Yes you're lucky to have such a great team of people to work with but you know what? I think in the long run bosses get the staff they deserve. If they've stuck around that long, it's that the spirit and leadership. Congratulations to you all for this beautiful achievement.

These photos of the girls are wonderful. They will be cherished by parents forever.

It is nice to work with people you enjoy and develop friendships over a long period of time.
