MAINE TRIP: Jeff & Jose Reception: Day 2: Pics from the Reception

The Wedding Party!
Here are some miscellaneous photos from Jeff and Jose's reception!

What is Peaks Island?
Peaks Island is the most populous island in Casco Bay, Maine. It is part of the city of Portland and is approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from downtown. The island became a popular summer destination in the late 19th century, when it was known as the Coney Island of Maine, home to hotels, cottages, theaters, and amusement parks.
While small, the island hosts a variety of flourishing businesses that are rapidly expanding and growing. These include an ice cream parlor called Downfront, a restaurant called The Cockeyed Gull, and Wildnut Farm Market.

 THE LYRICS FROM J&J'S WEDDING THEME SONG, "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper:
Jeff giving direction, Jose, Janice, Lisa, Mit and Lisa nearby
Eric and Keith enjoying the reception
the reception venue before the crowd!
ying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion--
Is nothing new
Flashback--warm nights--
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories,
Time after--

Sometimes you picture me--
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said--
Then you say--go slow--
I fall behind--
The second hand unwinds

[Chorus:]
If you're lost you can look--and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
Watching through windows--you're wondering
If I'm OK
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time--

[Chorus:]

You said go slow--
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds--

[Chorus:]

Time after time...
Time after time...
Time after time...
Time after time...

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
