The Rehearsal

Sorry it's taking me so long to blog about the wedding. I turned my camera over to Alyson (my brother, John's, girlfriend) for the weekend of the wedding and she managed to get about 2,000 fabulous shots for me.

Dave and I got married in a pasture at my parents' home. We chose a spot where the sun would be setting behind us. It worked out that it was on my brothers' old baseball field. When my brothers were younger my dad built them a ball field in our yard. It was a real deal regulation field. Their Little League and Babe Ruth teams practiced on it. Did anyone wonder what the big backstop was? The ceremony was actually set up in the outfield, so the ground was nice and flat. My dad nearly mowed all of the tall grass, but I asked him to leave it. I'm glad we did, because it turned out beautiful in all of the photos. I don't know how I'll ever repay Dave's Aunt Kathy. The woman scooped up all of the horse maneur in the pasture for our wedding! Thank you Aunt Kathy!

Our rehearsal was on Friday, November 21. It was a perfectly sunny, but chilly afternoon. We had a little chaos at first, which is to be expected anytime you get my brothers and Matthew together. Being serious is nearly impossible for them. We finally worked everything out and went in the house to warm up before our meal.
