Story telling Sunday 2 - A renewal

Sian is hosting Storytelling Sunday 2  today - stories in words and pictures, or just pictures.

This month, as I am still surrounded by dirty clothes, washing in the machine and ironing to be done having returned from California late on Friday evening, I am sharing photos from our trip. Two which are very precious:
 Renewing our vows with Elvis at the Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas. (The quality of this photo is not great as I took it off the video - official photos take 3 weeks to arrive!).
This photo was taken by the chauffeur of the limo after the ceremony. I was a little worried that the ceremony may be 'tacky' but in fact it was lovely - serious vows at the start, followed by the Elvis vows. Hugh and I both thoroughly enjoyed the event and it has taken a very special place in our holiday memories.

Please pop on over to Sian's blog to find links to many more photos/stories this month.

Oh wow, congratulations. I have that "tacky" view but am always surprised how many people who have experienced it themselves come out with such a positive review. Fantastic memory. You also reminded me to put some washing on LOL.
