Evidently the third weekend in October is quite popular for weddings. Last year Sara 's wedding was on the 22nd and this year both Andrew (my nephew) and my cousin's daughter were married last Saturday. The cousin lives in the Memphis area, but the pictures of that wedding are great. It was a beautiful day there as well as in the Atlanta area where we were. Andrew and Francis chose a 1920s theme and we all dressed up. The bride and groom were radiant and the guests had a wonderful time. Here are some pics; there are more on Facebook.
Dean and I. Doesn't he look cute? He chose and rented his outfit without consulting me and I think that he did a bang-up job. In fact, one of the single girls asked him to pose in a picture with her. Drew and Francis had the photographer taking funny portraits in the barn where hay bales and farm implements were available to use as props. There were lots of "American Gothic" poses. We got the whole family there for one and that took quite a bit of collecting and recollecting people. The old familiar "herding cats". I hope that the picture turns out well; would it be too much to hope that everyone's eyes were open?
mink stole she bought here in Cleveland at the Antique Parlor. She is also wearing on her right hand an amazing emerald ring of her mother's. Outstanding!
The siblings, Vicki, Buddy, Caroline. The sequins of Vicki's skirt change colors and show violet, copper-pink, teal blue, and gold. I found the hat at Dillard's department store. I guess hats are trying to make a comeback. I found several old hats that vied to be worn, but this one seemed best in the long run. I plan to wear it to church this winter. I'll wear the other ones, too.
Jenny, our young matron (mother) and Sara , our flapper. I thought that my girls looked so good. Greg wore a tux and a hat and carried a grey cane. Alex and the children couldn't come. We missed them but Jenny did have more freedom than she would have if the children had been there.
We are all tired but happy to have been together. My nephew and his family were able to come from FL and my brother's younger children were there. Vicki and her (ex) husband hosted a party Friday night where we all had fun and on Sunday morning we all got together for breakfast at the Flying Biscuit (where you get a biscuit with your French toast). It was so good to be together.
Thanks for reading, and I hope that your day is filled with blessings.
