A long awaited and long anticipated legality...the choice to marry the one you love. Such a simple thing and yet so much unnecessary controversy surrounds the act. This couple has risen above the fray and claimed their day.
This is one of the pieces in my "Weddings" Series at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton Virginia. The show will be hung until July 1, 2013.
The reception for the show was June 8th...last night. It was a magical, wonderful evening filled will friends, relatives and lots of fun. My son Michael Bennett Hock catered the affair for me. He is a fabulous BBQ artist! He arranged for three of his friends to wear their wedding dresses and work the crowd during the reception. He also wrote a blog tribute to me...of which I am very proud. You can read it HERE if you are so inclined.
Here are a couple of pictures of my husband...my biggest supporter...and my self at the reception and a great picture of my parents having fun at the reception.
What a great evening!
