Ivan and Mary… Married!

I’ve known Ivan longer than I’ve known anyone in Seattle, so when I received the evite for a combination moving day/marriage ceremony, I was more-than-excited, and brought my daughter Ellie with me to help celebrate. Photo galleries from the wedding are posted here and here, with some snapshots I’ve snagged of interest below. For their honeymoon, Ivan and Mary are headed off on a two-month bike journey from Seattle to Norfolk, VA! A safe journey and congratulations!
