Today I am heading to the bay area to attend a celebration of life for my dear friend Kimi’s wonderful dad, Bruce. In his memory, I wanted to post a few photos from Kimi’s wedding, (by Samuel Potter Photography) and specifically the amazing father/daughter dance, to ‘Days Go By,” the theme song from Family Matters. It was truly the most fun father/daughter dance I’ve ever seen, and one I won’t ever forget.

Bruce had such a vibrant and fun personality, making everyone around him smile and laugh. He stole the show as the master of ceremonies at the reception. (I’m not entirely sure that was the plan!) Kimi and her husband Mike had a 20′s style wedding, filled with peacock details, so Bruce started a chant, “When I say ‘pea’ you say…” well, you get the idea.I definitely laughed more at Kimi’s wedding than any I’ve been to, thanks to Bruce.
The amazingly fun father/daughter dance – they covered that dance floor!
Look at the smiles on their faces! And you can see me in the background beaming back at them – I was enamored.
How many father/daughter dances feature air piano? Well this one did!
As days go by,
we’re gonna fill our house with happiness.
The moon may cry,
we’re gonna smother the blues with tenderness
As days go by,
it’s the bigger love of the family.
What a wonderful life Bruce lived. I know he left his loved ones so many joyful memories to cherish.
