Update New photos added 12/12 – thx to father of the bride!

On Saturday, October 20th, Suzanne Kenny Skinner and Stephen Peter Forster tied the knot in Alexandria Virginia, an event that the Skinner and Forster clans had eagerly anticipated and greatly enjoyed. “Sweet, sweet Suzanne” the father of the bride remarked at the reception – no truer words could be spoken. Your correspondent, knowing full well he ventures onto very thin ice, nonetheless hazards the notion that among the many, many fine traits exhibited in the Skinner genome, sweetness is not at the very tip top.* So the Kennys must get the credit for this most pronounced of Suzanne’s best attributes (brains and good looks need mentioning too).

This was one really fun wedding. It was especially nice to get to meet Stephen’s parents, Donna and Peter Forster. I only wish I had better photographs to catch its essence, but here are a few that you may enjoy. As always, send any better shots you may have and they can be added to the post later.

It was truly a pleasure to spend time with Stephen and his family and friends. We have been enriched by Suzanne’s good judgement and wish them the very best. If the lights stay out in Manhattan, the newlyweds should remember these famous lyrics:

“Meet me in St. Louis, Louis,
Meet me at the fair,
Don’t tell me the lights are shining
any place but there…


*My biased Skinner spouse – described as “bitter-sweet” by her own mother – objects to these allegations (e.g. consider Cynthia!). Our fair and balanced readers can render their own verdict on this…
