The Rest of the Story - Or Pictures

There are some pictures of the reception and just pictures in general that I want to include before we get on with other things.

I think Emily and I both are having withdrawal symptoms. We spent so many days (or I did - she was mainly studying) planning and collecting items and making decisions and working on the quilt and discussing details that it's kind of a letdown to be back in the normal world. Mainly for me, since Emily and Ryan spent the last week in Washington and have some big decisions to make and lots of unpacking of gifts and thanking of people. When they picked everything up last night, including Griffin and Jack, I walked back into the garage, and the only thing left were flower petals all over the floor from the last of the wedding flowers. It's kind of a good feeling to have it behind us and free from the stress that goes with planning and carrying out a wedding, but I'm just a little lost.

It won't take me long to get back to normal, normal being making a mess. I was digging through fabric today, trying to decide on the next project - maybe Elise's quilt if she'll talk me through what she wants.

First meet Rascal, the newest grandpuppy. According to Stephanie "the cutest puppy in the entire world." I can't wait to snuggle with him. Reception and miscellaneous pictures.

This is the only picture we have of the band so far. They did a great job and made everything seem so festive. Quite a bit of dancing went on toward the end of the night, and I'm sure the photographer got some good pictures of that.

Having about as much fun as you can have at a wedding.

Meghan, Bill, and Marilyn - who opened up their home and made this a special night.

Meghan and Karen meeting Grandaddy Windham.

It was a beautiful night in a beautiful setting.

Emily knew just what she wanted the cake to look like. The baker did a great job, and it was delicious. Matches her dress too. The cake topper was cute. Steph sent a clearer picture (below).

I never got around to seeing the food much, but this is beautiful. When we get some clearer pictures, I'll get Emily to give me the menu. I loved just watching the caterers setting up things and wishing I could be that productive.

This is just a funny picture to me. I'm not sure what Emily and I are communicating behind Alan's back, but it looks serious. Maybe still fighting about those blue napkins. Sorry about another food picture Kathy, but this just shows your pretty outfit! And the flowers.

Another funny one. I'm sure Emily isn't crying. I like the way Andie and Lobster are waiting for just one crumb to fall from Rich's plate. I don't know yet if this picture will enlarge, but it's the only one I have right now of the six wedding pictures of Ryan and Emily's parents and grandparents. I wish someone had fixed the labels for me. I was distracted. Uncle Fuddy-Duddy and his bride came from Andalusia and are there in front of the cake.

This is a clearer picture of the cake and topper. If you click to enlarge it, you can see small replicas of Emily, Ryan and Griff. They don't know that the baker dropped Ryan into the icing when he was placing it and had to wipe his suit off . I'm still wondering what the photographers are doing here. Guess we'll find out soon.
That's probably about it for pictures for now. They do show what a good time we had, and I just wish we had a picture of everyone. We will eventually, I'm sure.
