And The Wedding Goes On
The bride wanted an outside wedding at the Angel Springs Event Center. It almost happened, the outside wedding I mean. The guest were seated facing the trees. The wedding party lined up on the rock porch. The grandmother of the groom (me) was to be escorted first and the grandmothers of the bride second with the parents and then the wedding party. As the music started so did the rain and the thunder. The guests rushed to the porch for protection. Tables were quickly pushed to the side and an alter of sorts arranged in the nice large building. The wedding went on without a hitch. Not the stiff ceremony of weddings in the past. A little laughing by the couple and the guests, everything was good. The reception was the usual cake cutting and toasting. Then the music and fun began. Loud music and fast dancing. The young people loved it with we oldsters watching and dancing a few slow ones when they threw them in. Our family stayed on the property for the night in cabins. The word cabin doesn't do them justice. They were made of cedar with that aroma and a tin roof for the rain to make that relaxing sound. Central heat and air, snacks and drinks in the fridge. A shower from the ceiling and a Jacuzie (sp) tub. Decorated in a country style with big windows with a nice view. Now I'm home and back to the normal routine wishing Cody and Jessica many years of happy wedded bliss.
