Forgive me for this being the only picture that came out from Jessica and Ben M.'s wedding yesterday! I was so busy taking it all in - the beautiful setting, the good times, great music, sweet, laid-back atmosphere, that I forgot to take out my camera. And when I did, it was on such low battery that THIS was the only pic that wasn't blurry. I'm sure more will come up on FaceBook, and we're eagerly anticipating their being posted!
The service was just exquisite. In a big pretty white church, the bridesmaids wore a rich chocolate brown with matching shoes and carried boquets of ivory and pink roses tied with Tiffany-blue silk ribbon. Excuse my lapse into wedding-planner mode, but the colors really were to die for. And shazaam at how hot all the groomsmen and ushers were in their classic black tuxes. I love a man all dressed up like that.
The reception was at the Cedars, and I have to say the food and cakes were absolutely delicious! I'm still dreaming about the shrimp & grits - it was inspirational! Jessica and Ben were so laid back and relaxed and just a joy to get to visit with. We sat on the front porch and caught up with good family and friends. A great time was had by all.
And to think, right now, as I type this post, the happy lovebirds are on their way down to St. Lucia for their honeymoon. Have a great time y'all - we sure did. Can't wait to see pictures! Watch out for my buddy the Rastafarian with one flippy-floppy on and one missing. And when you get back, you'll have to come over to Clinton for supper and to tell us all about it. Bring Callie too! I know she'll love married life!
Funny side note: yes, Mr. Peacock was packing heat. But I made him leave it in the car for the wedding and reception. After an 18-month long engagement, "shotguns" of any sort were rendered unnecessary. (tee hee)
