Hi-jinks, and a Rehearsal, of Sorts . .


The day before the wedding dawned clear and beautiful.

Friends and family from all over were gathering to help with preparations . . .

Lots of young uns . . .

The bride took the kids for a ride . . .
 
Lights were strung, flags festooned . . .

 A bridesmaid got a haircut . . .

Friends and family came from afar . . .

It was kind of a zoo . . .

But in a good way . . .

The rehearsal was held outside, in spite of a light rain . . . 

Enlivened by a surprise skit based on the marriage scene from "The Princess Bride"

And engineered by the officiating pastor -- who is also the father of the bride.

After which there was lots of food, engineered by the mother of the bride.

And tomorrow . . . a wedding!

What KarenB said...I went to a wedding that had a skit by the bride and groom...weddings have become so much more entertaining these days! All blessings for the family and friends who gather, and especially the couple making their vows.
