I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU...
There's a wedding today! I'm really feeling sick, but caffeine helps!
CA and LFW have class reunion activities today in Eureka, and GG will be transferred from BroMenn in Bloomington to the small local hospital in Eureka by early afternoon.
I've volunteered to provide lunch for the wedding party today--they'll be having photos taken from 11:30am -1:30pm. Jimmy John's is preparing two sandwich trays and CA has done a grocery-run for soda and chips. So... I'm on the road by 11:30am for the 2:00pm wedding. CA will drive separately as he'll skip the reception to attend class reunion activities.
JJ has chosen shades of purple, and the bridesmaids are lovely in their strapless satin gowns. Mother-of-the-bride SJ has a gorgeous lavender dress, and my brother PJ looks great in his tux. PJ manages to keep his composure as he walks JJ down the aisle to her beaming groom.
It's always fun to see the whole family dressed up and enjoying each other. The little ones are always so happy to be together, and their jubilation is catching.
It's a perfect Fall sunny afternoon, and everyone is ready to celebrate the newlyweds. Since we left last night, P+SJ have added large pots of purple mums at the entrance to the lodge--setting the tone for what's inside. The room is transformed and inviting.
The kids have prepared a sweet and sentimental slide show that plays in the theater end of the lodge. The food is fun and plentiful, and the huge three layer cake baked by a fried is spectacular--top layer is chocolate, middle is pumpkin spice, and the bottom is a very vanilla. Yum! It is always all about the cake for me!
Blessings to you, Joanne and Marcus Whitted!
