Nick and Suzanne's Wedding...

Having arrived in Indianapolis at lunchtime on Thursday, 24th July, Candace and I then drove over two hours north-east to the Fort Wayne area. Here we stayed with Candace's uncle and aunt near Grabill while we attended Nick and Suzanne's wedding on Saturday, 26th July.

Over our three days in the Fort Wayne area, we were able to meet up with many of our friends from Mercy Ships, who had travelled down for the wedding. We spent time at a BBQ and fireworks for Nick and Suzanne at Suzanne's house on the Thursday. We met up with Mercy Shippers for lunch at Cindy's Diner in Fort Wayne on Friday, before going to the Allen County Fair in the evening. We even took our good friends Tim and Karin (Tim worked with me in the Purser's office on the ship) for a tour of Amish country on the Saturday morning.

Then came the main event of Nick and Suzanne's wedding on Saturday evening. It was lovely to be with Mercy Ships family for such a special event, as the 'love boat' has brought two more individuals together. :-) Happy wedding Nick and Suzanne!
