The Drays Attend a Wedding

#1 was in a wedding this weekend, and we had a lot of fun. Friday night was the rehersal and rehersal dinner-by then we were convinced we had made the right decesion to have Baby J "visit" some friends for the day/evening of the wedding. He does not like to be over tired and does not like to party. He was both over tired and not partying at the rehearsal/rehersal dinner. He must be a baby or something...

Here is the groom almost ready to go. He is watching football to calm his nerves, but OSU almost made him quite upset by letting Navy get so close in score. This must be the Michigan game because he is dressed. He didn't change out of his OSU jersey until the clock ran out. He may possibly be one of their biggest fans.

Outside the house where the guys got ready, Snug and #1 pose for a quick picture.

Snug already knew from the night before when we hung these lanterns that they were not to be played with...but man were they tempting. The wedding and reception took place outside, and the weather could not have been more beautiful.

Saying their vows...

Sorry these pictures are a tad out of order. This is actually before the wedding. Snug is being consoled by the bride's aunt...because he was in T R O U B L E. While mommy was setting up the video camera (I was sorta the videographer...there were two of us, and I am by NO means a videographer) he chose to dig in a large sandy area under a picnic table. His pants, shoes, and arms were filthy. I thought I might choke him, but I didn't. Instead he was marched into the house, I did a quick wash up job, and he was told under no uncertain circumstances to stay on this couch(?) until the ceremony started.

The bride was beautiful and I wanted to get a picture of the back of her hair/dress/veil seems how she probably never even got to see how pretty it was!

Of course I had to play with my sepia setting...

The cake not only looked pretty, it tasted really good too. I'm not that into beautiful cakes that taste like plastic.

The reception was held under a big tent with white lights and a dance floor in the middle. Each table had two pictures on it, and a number. Table number one was pictures of both of them at year one. We sat at table 16, so the bride and groom were sixteen years old in the photos!

Snug sat very nice during the ceremony thanks to a friend who sat next to him, a box of raisins, and a magnadoodle.

I think this groomsman was the most handsome of all!

Remember that the groom is a big football fan. Well, this is the cake topper...and the garter (which Snug caught with a bit of help from the bride's brother) was also OSU.
My "good" camera takes great outdoor pictures, but once it starts to get dark, or inside, it doesn't do so well. It needs a bigger flash (the one built into it is just pathetic as you can see above) and eve if I mess with the ISO it isn't very good. The quality of my reception pictures was pathetic and I erased 90% of them. Oh well. My little point and shoot takes terrific night pictures, but I forgot it.
So even though Baby J was missed, we had a great time and were relieved not to have a crying, soggy, dirty heap of a baby to take home with us that night. Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Snug is so handsome! If my Moringa is successful I will send some your way.

I'm thinking they have to get more tree like first, I am still learning can you tell? Hehe, thanks for the idea.
