The Wedding: Part 1

I'm working on the wedding post. The post of THE day. The post I'm having to stop writing every couple minutes because I cannot see the computer screen through the happy tears of joy that keep streaming down my face.

Speaking of tears streaming down my face, I decided to have my hair and make-up done on THE day for THE event and if you know me you know I do not 'do' my hair and I do not wear make-up due to my crazy allergies to everything under the sun but I figured for THE day it would be a good idea.

And then the rain came. Not torrential or anything just a sprinkle, just enough to make the humidity shoot up to 500 gazillion percent. So I paid BIG money to throw my hair back up in in a hair tie and to sweat my make-up off but hey! we had a BLAST anyway! But that's part of THE story so...

Most of us sat in a rented van (very nice BTW) for 8 hours but a few decided to fly over to Nashville.

There were still a few details to finish up when we arrived but most everything was done because that's the way NashvilleDaughter rolls so we ran some errands and enjoyed some family time.

We collected sticks in the backyard-

We cooked yummy food--

 I asked if there were any local BBQ joints and we went to the BEST PLACE EVER!

We put together a remembrance display of those no longer with us--

And a display for the wedding hashtag-

Bought brand new cowboy boots which haven't come off her feet yet and yes, that includes the wedding.

Got mani/pedis--

In Nashville, if the officiant isn't a judge or a minister the marriage is not legal so we had to go to the courthouse before the ceremony.

And we ate some more...

And more--

And more--

I go on and on about the food in Nashville but, goodness! I have yet to find food that I do not LOVE in that city.

I know this is photo overload so---

To be continued---

Here's a sneak peek at the rehearsal dinner hosted by DrummerBoy's wonderful parents...
