We once had a niece called Holly
Whose nickname became Holly Dolly
Along came a prince called Andy
Who in marriage asked for her hand-y
And now they find themselves quite jolly
I just felt like trying my hand at a limerick. Yes, my niece Holly just married Andy, a very kind gentleman from Chisholm, MN who also happens to be a sheriff. It was a joyous wedding with all Holly's nieces and nephews involved. Larry Oberg, John's brother is her father and also officiated at the wedding. Our daughter Cherish and I provided the music for the wedding which was great fun.
Larry and Kathi have four children. All are now married with Holly being the youngest. So, Holly's other two sisters and a sister-in-law were bridesmaids along with Joanna who is very close to Holly, her cousin. It was a very touching ceremony with lots of tears and laughter.
Andy was welcomed and loved by Larry's whole family the moment they met him and HE was infatuated with Holly the moment he met HER. Andy spent all his time off over at the Oberg's home in Buyck, MN helping with projects and playing with the other grandchildren. Everyone was hoping that Holly would fall in love with him and some day marry him. Well, it finally happened.
When Larry walked her down the aisle to present her to Andy and the question was asked, "Who gives this woman in marriage to this man?" the whole family shouted, "WE ALL DO!!!"
I believe they are well suited for each other and will enjoy a lifetime of happiness together.
John's mother flew home from Texas for the wedding and looked stunning in her blue dress. She is flanked in the above picture by Joanna and Cherish.
