Shane & Billie Got Hitched


I explained last week that Shane's dad is not doing well.  He's been in the hospital for about 3 weeks now with a multitude of problems.  Shane and Billie were supposed to get married in a church in October, but with his dad's failing health, they changed their plans.  They both wanted his dad to be a part of the wedding, so they went and got their marriage license on Friday, and had a ceremony in his room on Sunday afternoon.

The nurses were very excited to hear of the impromptu wedding, with only a couple of days notice for all involved.  They stood in the doorway and watched the service and then threw us a surprise reception in their conference room....truly a great bunch of caring ladies.  I was in charge of taking pics of the wedding with Billie's camera....so I wasn't able to get pics of the actual ceremony with my own camera...but I got plenty throughout the afternoon.
