I realize this is a bit late but between the wedding and guests staying for a couple of days last week, work has piled up such that I haven’t been able to write for a couple of days now.

First batch of wedding pictures.

  links lyssa pictures wedding

The first batches of pictures from the wedding are online. Firstly, Lyssa's gone through the several thousand images that Bladeless Axe gave us and picked out the best. You can see them in her Picasa albums here and here. I've also put together the photographs sent to me by my mother and Judy, organized them, and put them up here.

If anyone has any more photographs to contribute, please let me know and I'll link to them.
