What You've Been Waitin' For.....

Pictures from the photographer. Of course, being an anonymous blogger (well, kinda), I had to find pictures that didn't really show anyone up close. Ones that gave you the FEEL of the day without killing anyone's privacy.

The tables and the huge tissue paper balls that I made a few nights before. It rained TWO INCHES that Saturday and had just stopped and cleared up an hour before. The sun came out on a day that no one believed that it would. I think God knew he had to quit it out or my mother would be *pissed.*




One hundred chairs turned out to be just about perfect!





The landing of the stairs that I ran up. And down. And up. And down. 183,793 times before anyone even arrived. I managed to have a smile on my face. Even though I wasn't drinking. Yet.






Here's THE DRESS! Just waiting, like it had all the time in the world to make her even more beautiful than she already was.




The 74-year-old bride all dressed up and peeking with the flower girl. They were trying to kill time, while everyone was arriving and being seated. It took us maybe 5 minutes to get dressed. What are you women doing that go upstairs for an hour and are late for the wedding. I guess she already knew what she was getting in to.





The crowd. The rest of them are menfolk hanging back. You know how they do that and hell, I don't know what they do back there. But they're in the back around the pool deck. Being guys. Doing guy stuff. Waiting the "guy way."



That's it for now. I have a few more, but you know how I love to tease you!

The photo of the bride and flower girl peeking is perfect! I love that one. You did a wonderful job and I know your mom and dad are so thankful. Of course, they know they raised you right!

Great job! And I don't get the long wait either. If it takes me a 1/2 hour to get ready, it's taking too long.

...the "guy way of waiting" is a time-honored tradition that dates back to the 8th century B.C., when waiting for things came into being. It is what it is...and it works...
