Well, we are recovering!
These last few days have been so long and so short.
Here is a summary:
Friday I left at about 7:30 in the morning and stopped in Greensboro to drop off a gift for my nephew Thomas with my in-laws. I had a chance to grab a mini bagel and a soda, as well as a nice chat, before heading over to Raleigh to pick up my sister and brother from the airport.
Brad and Nina both had flights that were on time so we got out of the airport in a timely matter. We then picked up Subway for us and our cousin Sara and her kids but managed to get lost after having used GPS and my printed Google maps. Why did it take us so long to call the person we were trying to visit? I don’t know.
We had a great but short visit before we had to make it across the state over to Edenton for the rehearsal dinner. We dropped Nina and Brad at the rehearsal dinner and I picked up my other brother and his wife so we could eat and begin organizing the reception area at the church.
We got a lot of stuff done on Friday night and then went back to where we were staying at my Aunt Nina’s in Chesapeake where we then prepped food for quite a while. We were sooo tired and I ended up on several blankets on the floor because we had so many people but it actually wasn’t that bad
Even with the exhaustion we all got up before 7 and then we took Edna over to our cousin Tammy’s salon to get Edna’s hair and make up done. We had to desert her so we could get to the church and finish setting up and prepping the food.
Made the hour and a half drive with some drive thru McDonalds and we got it finished with the help of the best woman’s sister. I think my pictures came out pretty well and hopefully the bride and groom get to enjoy them!
Things got really busy at 1:30 as we only had 30 minutes before the wedding! The wedding was very nice, the only hiccup was we forgot to give everyone their flowers but it was very nice service and we had a lovely reception. Although the food was already gone by the time we were done with a few photos!
I’ve been pretty good but I did have two slices of cake. Ah red velvet chocolate cake with fondant type icing.
After the clean up we picked up BBQ at Southland on our way back to Chesapeake and then hit the internet. My photos are uploaded (well most of them) and hopefully tomorrow I’ll get to work on the video editing portion.
The family that webs together, stays together right?
