One Down, Two to Go

This is the beginning of a few stories (and photos) from my first attempt at being the father of the bride.

Below is a  photo of  the newly minted Mrs. Creech and I having the “Father-Daughter Dance”

Elissa picked out a Darius Rucker song, which you can hear below.

I will note that the gold-framed sunglasses hanging from my pocket were a prop from when we were introduced.  My bad for not removing them for the dance, but I was on autopilot.

For the record, I lost about a half pound yesterday. . .  from lots of happy tears, but I gained a wonderful son-in-law.



About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You do look a very proud (and very smart) Daddy there, and who’s that gorgeous lady you are with? Good music choice too. May they have a long, happy, and healthy marriage together.

    Congrats,Ray! To further commemorate your dance with your daughter, I recommend the late Luther Vandross’ song—Dance With My Father.

    What an absolutely heartbreakingly perfect choice of song Elissa made. You look SO proud, she SO happy. I wish her joy and peace and love and laughter in a long long marriage to her one true love. And you I wish the content that comes from knowing you did a wonderful job and you will always be number one in her eyes
