Congratulations! However I carry very often if not always a camera in my 
pocket, mostly a Ricoh GR1, my daughter *forbid* me shooting in her wedding 
some years ago and said I had to pay carefully attention at my part as 
father and godfather and, knowing me very well, to be attentive in the 
ceremony for avoiding mistakes. Really I had no time for pics excepting in 
the banquet but then she insisted in me dancing and I hadn't danced from 
thirty years ago that's my own marriage. They *took* pictures of me dancing! 
-250 pounds weight-. I have just only a daughter so next wedding will be my 
granddaughter Sarah and, certainly, I'll not be here any more. Frank, enjoy 
the happiness of the moment and forget the pictures.
