Two of my nephews celebrated milestones in their lives this past weekend … and of course the special events happened 7 hours apart, one in Ohio and the other in New York. My brother’s son graduated from high school and although we missed the Saturday event at Bethel High School, we timed the Sunday afternoon party back at their house perfectly – in other words we made if for food.
My nephew Aaron, was married in a beautiful ceremony at the Chautauqua Institute in western New York. The sunny 80 plus degree day made the outdoor “Hall of Philosophy” setting ideal for a wedding. It was great to see the family even if it was for only for the afternoon nuptials and evening reception – I don’t think I’ve ever been to a nicer wedding.
The ‘fortunate’ groom married Lauren Shuck, a girl that we’ve all known for years – a decade I think; it was about time Aaron! After an exciting honeymoon trip to Cairo, Egypt, they’ll be living near Washington DC where Aaron is finishing his PhD in Biology at Georgetown University. Aaron’s father, my wife’s late brother Mark, would have been very please with the ceremony and happy for his son. Congratulations Aaron and Lauren Howard.
