The Knot Part 2
We had our rehearsal, instructions and final go all at one time! I just made it up as we went!
I did NOT expect to start crying during my vows though! That caught me totally off guard and then Jack kinda started crying and I thought "Oh Nooooo, I can't make him cry!" It was very obvious in some of the photos we were both about to start bawling. lol! We got through it though.
My brother kept it fairly short! ha! He only prayed once. It was very touching for us though, seriously. I know it meant a lot of both of us.
Chigger had a great time through the whole thing. She thought that day was the best EVER, because there were so many people to play with her. She did real well and didn't jump up on anybody or knock anybody down or anything.
Then there was FOOD! The cake was just fabulous. Everybody raved about it. It was really good. The top layer was all vanilla and the bottom was chocolate cake with vanilla icing. YUM.
Me and Betty. Betty was the personnel director, payroll clerk etc. etc. at my old company for about 4 decades! She is the sweetest person and I miss getting to see her. We had some laughs, that's for sure! I was so happy she made it to the wedding.
The guys finally getting to take a break and eat! Konstantine is my Russian friend on the right that took the vast majority of these pictures. They helped out so much. I must get a gift for him and his wife.
Jack, my husband, finally getting to enjoy his beloved fruitcake! I ordered one from his favorite bakery in Texas for his groom's cake. It was really good too.
More eating! The food was really good.
Me and my brother!
And my whole family! I'm not sure if Chigger was embarrassed to be seen with us or mad we took pictures without her!
And the bouquet toss! As you can probably tell, Sveta was a little excited. She's been single for some time now. lol! In case you're wondering, my niece goaded her little brother into getting out there too! We all had fun with it.
Sveta was determined though!
And she got it!
This is Jack's son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, now mine too! They were the only ones of his family that could make it but Jack's brother and sister came into town tonight so we did get to see them and will be spending the next few days together. Then off to Florida!!
So, part one of the honeymoon starts tomorrow so I'm not sure how often I'll be able to post or even respond to comments. I'll be back when I can though!
