On Saturday, October 4th, my family had a wedding to attend. Christopher & Amy married that day. Chris is a cousin on my Dad’s side of the family. His brothers are Jonathan and Benjamin (who is married to Jenni for four years now). And we see my Uncle Dean & Aunt Linda, Jonathan, Chris & Amy, and Ben & Jenni every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I was very happy for Chris & Amy, and I was excited about being there. The wedding was actually a two-hour drive away from us, so I rode with my parents.
It was very nice to get away from my usual routine. I usually work on the weekends, so I made sure to put the request to be off, on this Saturday, in by the end of August. This was definitely too important to miss. 🙂
Well, the ceremony was actually an outdoor wedding, and since the season, literally, changed overnight (low 70s on Friday and 40s on Saturday), it was a chilly. Of course, I admired the chill. I’ve been waiting for the air to cool down. I’d rather it be chilly instead of humid outside, but that’s my point of view.
Everything was beautiful. Amy’s dress. The ceremony. The decorations.
The reception was inside.
I ate one of everything at the reception. I wanted to try everything. 😀
Dancing was upstairs. Cupcakes were served. And… I ALMOST caught the bride’s bouquet. I got a little bit of the stem… but the young lady next to me caught a better hold of it. I was close though. 😀
Jonathan caught the garter.
Chris and Amy went to Colorado for their honeymoon.
The wedding was a very nice time! It was also lovely to get out of my four walls be all dressed up with somewhere to go.
