My legs are so sore. Dance much too much at the wedding last night. This old lady is not used to such things.
It was beautiful and unique in many ways. The bride was just gorgeous in her gown. The groom so handsome. The mother of the groon not a happy camper but not because of the wedding. She discovered the dress she bought to wear had a split zipper just as she was putting it on. She had to resort to the one she wore for the other sons wedding.
The program telling the wedding party names etc. was really cute. You have to know the bride and groom are very serious baseball fans, (how serious you can be rooting for the Cubs is a mystery, just kidding Cub fans). The front has a picture of a baseball with their names on it and the words "In your arms...I'm always safe at home!! Inside the parents are listed at the Coaching staff of the couple. For the bridesmaids there is a home plate saying Diamonds are a girl's BEST FRIEND and listing TEAM BRIDE with the girls listed as positions on the field. For TEAM GROOM there is crossed bats with a ball in the middle. The groom sang "I won't let go" while the seating was taking place and the girl singing the other songs was awesome. We've known this young man all his life and even his parents didn't know what a wonderful voice he had. The Ball Girls (flower) had baskets decorated like balls. The Bat Boys had a little problem coming down the aisle. The littlest one decided he wanted no part of it and the bigger was dragging him the finally picked him up and said DAD. It these little things that you remember.
Also in the program "The Roses on the alter are a loving reminder that someone is missing today, someone our hearts still hold on to, as we travel along life's way. Someone who made life so special, for all of those who gather here. " Followed with the names of those special people.
Below that it said "The Bride, Groom & Members of the bridal party are wearing white tennis shoes to "Stomp Out Cancer" for those who have fought and lost, for those who have fought and won, and for those wo are still Fighting.
The tables at the reception were number with pictures of shirts with the # of a Cubs player. The tickets to tell you where you sat were like Cubs baseball tickets for a game with your name on them and at each place a lottery ticket with a heart shaped ball and inscription "Wishes for RICHES from The New Mr. & Mrs. With A Whole LOTTO Love! No winners here.
The food was great. We were wondering if it would be be baseball fare, but no. Chicken cordon blue, beef tips and noodles, corn on the cob, potatoes and salad. They had no cake, as the groom aunt usually makes them and she just didn't feel up to such a large scale one and they wanted no one else so instead....'make your own Sundae'.
The a slide show of them growing up and the dancing started and that's how I got so sore.
