Wedding Day for My Son

Aug 11, 2012

My son Matthews gets married today in Maine, and I couldn't be happier or prouder. He is marrying his Anna, who he met in college and has been with since.

They are making a home for themselves near Freeport, Maine (L.L. Bean here I come!) and my family and friends will be heading up that way for the festivities. The photo you see is the site of the ceremony.

I had to find a jazz-oriented track for today, so I tabbed a "Wedding March - Slow Waltz" from Charles Mingus' Cumbia and Jazz Fusion album. The song was written by Mingus and included on the CD version of the 1977 release.
