We squeezed into dress clothes:
And took gifts:
(Now, that was worth it!)
We slowly walked the aisle and adjusted the bride's train and generally looked pretty:
We lit candles:
Dropped silky white petals in thick clumps up the main aisle:
And resignedly handed out programs at the door:
I directed the wedding, and the Man of the House shuttled people back and forth, ate pizza patiently for too many dinners, tried to ignore the fact that his shirts hadn't been ironed, and paid for all of us to look beautiful.
The wedding had all the things we love to love in weddings!
The moistest, lusciousest, bestest wedding cake we ever tasted:
It was hectic and exhilirating and poignant and exhausting. And it's over. But it sure was fun while it lasted!
