FOURTH OF JULY WEDDING
We attended a wedding on July the fourth. Both of the kiddos were in the wedding party. I was excited about this because it was a nice change from the usual fireworks and overeating we do on the fourth.
This was a really neat wedding, the couple used some unique ideas and that too was as refreshing as the date.
The venue itself was really cool with old creaky hardwoods, and a old uptown feel. The brides dress was made from silk her dad picked up while he was in India. It was gorgeous...As the grooms men came into the ceremony "the boys are back in town" played. Great comic relief from the standard uptight entrance usually made. The parents read poems, they wrote their own vows, and sealed a time capsule.
While the wedding party had photos, appetizers were served and guest mingled. After the bride and groom entered dinner was served. Then came a night of dancing. Baby boy snagged the garter because all the other single guys had their hands in their pockets. The cake was yummy and had the years they had been together on each layer. My children danced them selfs silly.
Some of the center pieces were fish in unusual glass bowls. Needless to say we now have "Lightening" and "Isabella" the fish living at our house. As the happy couple made their great escape sparklers were lit and used to wave them away. It was all a lot of fun....
