LOL@ I love it. We did the same thing at my daughter's wedding. Hugged guests and thanked them for coming, we didn't remember half their names and the other half we never saw or knew to begin with.
After you rest please send pic's. I'll even settle for the photographer's butt.
It was beautiful! Part of their ceremony was flowers and candles to honor their fathers. I got this beautiful Canna Lily wrist corsage.
The kids were so beautiful.
Friday night, son was flashing the really nice watch the bride had given him. I am so flippin' dense--I was coomplimenting the bride on her bling and told her it was beautiful---hell, I was talking about her sparkly shirt and didn't even notice the lovely necklace he had given her. Daughter mentioned yesterday how beautiful necklace he had given the bride. I told her I hadn't even noticed it--I was looking at her shirt!
Our former neighbor, semi-retired from pastoring, conducted the ceremony and mentioned that he had had the pleasure of watching son grow into a fine young man when we were neighbors.
I took 43 pictures and got the photographer's butt in half of them.
The reception was lovely, too. The bride's and groom's first dance was to 'Angel Eyes'. A little girl got out on the dance floor and wanted to dance, too. They picked her up and did part of the dance holding her and dancing with her. It was really sweet.
The dinner was excellent.
After the bride and groom first dance, i knew I had to leave. I didn't want any of my kids to miss any of their brother's reception, so my best friend and her cousin, the friend who helps me, brought me home. My bones wanted to go home at (actually before the ceremony). We had to be there at 3:30 for pictures of the groom and his family, then after the wedding of the two of them and pictures of the bride's family. By then, it was after 6,***and time to head for the reception.
I knew my bones were not going to let up enough to let me sleep, but I sure enjoyed the mattress pad turned up to 5. I was up every hour, loading pictures, watering house plants, etc.
AFter two nights of hugging people and celebrating, my body has had a workout. People would come up and hug me and tell me I looked lovely and they hadn't seen me in such a long time. AFter they left, I would ask daughters, "Who was that?"
The bride and groom are so happy and we are all so happy for them
