So instead of a traditional wedding followed by a honeymoon, Matt and Christine decided they wanted a small wedding on the shores of Lake Keowee in upstate South Carolina.  That is how the family and a few close friends ended up spending 5 days together in a very large rented house near Seneca.  We arrived here on Friday and they got married on Saturday.  Matt’s cousin Simon from South Africa surprised him by joining us. Even a small, informal wedding requires a significant amount of planning and preparation, so things were a little hectic until everyone had eaten and things had gone smoothly. Thereafter, and for the next few days we will be relaxing in the sun, and just chillin’.  Here are a few photos from yesterday (I was doing double duty as the photographer and mother of the groom!)
