The weather cooperated in that there was no rain, but it was hotter than hell. The poor boys in their suits.. at least I was half naked, in my navy strapless number! Ow! Ow! Wait until you see how good I looked!! Anyway, it was hot. I don't remember wanting to pass out during the ceremony.. we were all in the shade and there was a nice breeze. But then I started dancing..
I hope Em's vision came true for her wedding day, because I don't think it could have been any more gorgeous! Ribbons hung from the trees, attached to the "floating" ends of the ribbons were wedding pictures brought by guests, there were wine bottle trees, lawn games, a man made photo booth, flip flops provided for the dancing machines (yours truly), gold fish on selected tables.. everything was so lighthearted and happy.. it was seriously what I imagine any bride would want their wedding to feel like, regardless of theme or settings.
