Patti is like a daughter to me - she is one of Tracy's very best friends and they spent many a night studying for Nursing school at my house. They were roommates for a few years while working here. She came up to Alaska when Tracy and Rick ne-newed their vows this last summer to stand up in her ceremony and Tracy - along with Rick and baby Gunther - came into town for this. Tracy stood up in her wedding - so this was was like family! Love it! The girls got ready at their home in Royal Oak and then had a beautiful ceremony at the First United Methodist Church in Royal Oak. We had so much fun with the romantics. Patti's theme was all natural nature, - flowers, trees, butterflies etc. We were able to get 4 of them plus 2 of us into the zoo to photograph in the outside butterfly garden and then even inside the butterfly atrium inside for a short while. Then we enjoyed some time along Quarten Lake in Birmingham. Everyone had a lot of fun at the reception at Farinas in Berkley.
A beautiful day and wedding. I even got to take my grandson home a little early while my brother Gunther stayed to finish a little more of the fun dancing.
