I thought I'd quickly fill you in on a few of the wedding details at this point. So yes indeed it is #2 son, Alex who is marrying the beautiful Brittney. Any woman who'd allow a Harley in her living room for a photo shoot is a keeper. :)
This wedding is happening in 11 days. We've had zero time to prepare but I kind of like things to unfold that way. I've catered lots and lots of weddings before but never a wedding of my own so this is different. I've also counseled lots of brides and parents to try and relax and not sweat the numerous details, because in the end they never really matter, but here I am in the middle of it and I need to take my own advice. So therefore a decision was made yesterday that I won't be doing the food. Yay! Now I can relax (ha) and just get the house and garden ready.
We are pretty sure the ceremony will take place in the yoga garden with B walking down an aisle of old Persian and Oriental rugs. The meal will take place in the front garden and the carport is being turned into a dance floor. We will have little food and drink stations throughout the garden. There will be lots of strung lights and today Larry is working on getting the fountain running.
There is nothing like a party to get your house whipped into shape right?! The inside will just get a regular dust and sweep and some fresh flowers. I re-hung the brown toile drapes because B wants all soft fall colors. Muted reds and faded oranges in the flower department. Her dress is an antique crocheted chemise. It all sounds lovely to me. I promise to post tons of photos. :)
