The Bride's Family
John and Tara were married on March 16, 2003
at the Carolina Club in Margate Florida. The Groom and his father wore
the Clanranald Tartan and the groomsmen wore Clan Gordon in memory of
Tara's mother Pat, who died of Cancer several years ago. A part of the
ceremony was the rite of joining the two clans. A scarf of Clanranald and
a scarf of Gordon were sewn together and draped over the couple's
shoulders while John's father asked a blessing on the union of the two
clans into one family.
David Macdonald of Castle Camus was the piper
for the wedding. David is the National Convener for Clan Donald USA and a
long time friend of the groom and his family.
