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.
