No matter how carefully you plan it...something WILL go wrong. You can count on it. The nuptials have come and gone. The heavy morning mist which set back the decorating a couple of hours is a distant memory. The last minute dash to the store for forgotten chaffing dish sterno...oh, crap...where's the cake topper?...the cold wind inviting itself to join us right up until the time the guests were leaving...the sun arriving just in time for the clean up....all things we embraced and overcame with laughter, tears and the simple joy of a wedding put together on a DIY shoestring because the young couple is just that...nothing fancy, excited about their new life as husband and wife.
A whole lot of faith and love for each other, a little bit of money...shake it up....and you have Buck and Kim...happily ever after! Congratulations to my son and his new bride!
I promise to follow up this blog with pics when I get to them. For now, I wanted to toast my family for coming together and working so hard to pull it all together and make it a successful, fun few hours to honor the joy of new beginnings. I am blessed, I love my family!
