Yesterday morning, we got up and did our farmer's market thing and made some breakfast and suddenly we were running late. We got packed up and headed back down to the inn, where Jeff read and I and a cadre of other women got Jeni dressed (corset, underdress, overdress, make-up, etc. It took a lot of us). The ceremony started just a little bit late, and was just beautiful, albeit windy (the weather gods had given in to all of our pleas and brought out the sun, but we forgot to request low wind levels too. If the maid of honor looks like Cousin It in any of the pictures, that's why.) Everything happened just as it was supposed to, none of the rings got lost, the train on the dress didn't cause any issues, the readers were perfect, etc, etc. After the ceremony, we took pictures (lots of pictures), and then there was barbecue and fried chicken for dinner, and then there was cake cutting and bouquet and garter tossing, and then we signed the marriage license, and then the tables got pushed out of the way for the dancing to start, and at the terribly late hour of 7:30, Jeff and I realized that we were Done. I had been out of social battery life for about an hour as it was. So we kissed the bride and groom and headed home, just as the party was really getting started. :) It was a lovely day.
We were in bed by 9:15, and I was asleep a little after 10 (when the party was still going on, I'm sure.) I'm getting old.
Between falling asleep so early and the time change, I'm up at a ridiculous hour for a Sunday morning. Today is slated to be house-cleaning and laundry and reading and homework and test grading (if the professor ever emails me the key).
