(030: Morning of the wedding. Photo © 2009 by Robin)
I was up at sunrise this morning. It was peaceful. There was a heavy fog outside, but I could see a hazy version of the sunrise colors behind the fog. Everything was hushed and muffled, the way it is in a heavy fog. As you can see from the photo above, the fog has lifted and it’s a beautiful day.
The rehearsal and rehearsal dinner all went off without a hitch. The church is lovely (it was the first time I’ve been in the church where M&M are getting married). The dinner was fun. The Mustard Seed Cafe, where we had the dinner, did a wonderful job. The food was excellent. The toasts (speeches) were great.
I have to leave in a little while to do the hair and make-up thing. Wish me luck. I have no idea what I want to do and will probably make up my mind at the last minute. I’m really hoping my stylist will have some ideas about my hair. She’s usually pretty good that way.
I better remember to tell her to use waterproof make-up. I’m fairly certain I’ll be shedding (more than) a few tears of joy throughout the day.
P.S. Thanks for all the notes and well-wishes. I haven’t had time to respond but have been reading them. 🙂
