One of the great joys of retirement is the honor of meeting and getting to know the brides and grooms of the ceremonies that I officiate at. Each wedding is unique and different. So are the venues. I put forth a lot of time, effort and energy in trying to make each ceremony special, personal, warm and meaningful. There is also the important follow-up. Congratulations to Vanessa and Cory; and Rachel and Shane. The setting pictured is of beach at The Lake Club, located on the South Shore, Lake Las Vegas.
