Folks it has been that kind of day. I will tell you about it sometime.
I really need to think happy thoughts at the moment. So lets talk WEDDING! Weddings are happy things.
And I love weddings where someone has thought outside the box so to speak. That was yesterday when Lyn and Russ got married at the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
I realize that you may not care two hoots and holler about the next bazillion pictures and explanation.
But….yeah, you know I am going to write the blog post anyway.
The wedding was in the middle of the afternoon on a TUESDAY. Needless to say, HHBL could not attend. This is my “date”. She happens to be the momma of TMO’s BFF who is pictured below practicing for her musical part in the wedding.
I think I have told you before that Al and TMO took one look at each other across a crowded 1st grade room and decided to be BFFs. And then they went home and told their moms that they had to be BFFs too.
And we are.
And that was ENTIRELY too many acronyms in one paragraph. I apologize but YOLO.
Can I just say total and complete lens envy. She had superior camera bodies which doesn’t bother me as I am completely in love with my 7D. But I might perhaps have thought of mugging her in the parking lot for the lenses. I restrained myself because she was very nice…but it was a near thing.
TMO and Al breaking the tension of the moments before the bride appears.
So typically Lyn. A BEAUTIFUL dress, no veil and her bouquet! Guys, her bouquet was made out of succulents!!
So unusual, which would then be so Lyn.
And the BACK of the dress! The number of wedding attendees was small but you should have heard the OOOOOOs and AAAAAAAAHs from all the women when they got a good look at the lace and buttons in the back.
Russ had eyes ONLY for Lyn. He looked like someone had koshed him over the head when she walked in the door. I am going to assume that he never looks that way when he flies a plane, just when he gets married.
Now lets EAT!
And may I say that……
A wedding reception that serves me Cold Beet Salad, Grilled Asparagus, Profiteroles stuffed with goat cheese and drizzled with honey, Gelato, cupcakes and all other manner of yummy delicacies is a wedding reception that is well done in my humble opinion.
They had me at Cold Beet Salad.
Of course we had to take a picture or ten of LAMMA. You know…..
And then all the LAMMA mommas. Dang I love these girls.
As a final we had to have the leaping up in the air photo that LAMMA ALWAYS seems to need to do. The official photographer got the better picture, but she acknowledged that it was my idea and that she hadn’t ever even thought of it but would employ it from now on.
I can live with that.
And then I went home and had a glass of wine to recover.
