On November 15, 2003, Antony Nash and Courtney Bolin FINALLY got married! Our interest in this lovely event is simple: the groom before the wedding, and the bride after, are family!
They've been dating on and off since High School, mostly on, and Antony had attained the advanced age of 29. So marriage was clearly on the cards.
One of the problems with having such a large family is that we Stock-Bruns are all hard to invite together. We understand, although we do wish that the cost of modern social events was less prohibitive.
This was a no children wedding, but as you can see from this lovely photo taken after a well lubricated rehearsal dinner, we got around that silly rule for two of ours, Nick and Tom, the groom's older cousins in our household.
It was about midnight. Antony, the groom, is in the middle between a very relaxed Nick and Tom. Although the fellow behind is swinging his handbag, he is definitely not the bride!
Here she is, on the right, with her groom and the minister. This was a part of the ceremony. The wedding took place on a lawned terrace overlooking the ocean at La Valencia Hotel on Prospect street in La Jolla, north of San Diego.
We did not try to take regular wedding photos, because a photographer who looked like a stoned Ruud Van Nistelroy was in attendance. The photos that he and his assistant took were available for purchase on the web for a while, but that seems to have come to an end.
Here are a few of the human interest photos that we took. . . . First, the mother of the groom and his sister, at the rehearsal dinner, held in Coronado.
The father of the groom on the bus returning from the rehearsal dinner to the hotel in La Jolla. Things are getting looser all round!
Finally, here are a couple more of our likely lads!
More photos of the entire Nash family can be found here.
