Going to the chapel…..

And Yes!  They got married!  I am getting old.  But I still make great cakes!  (pats self on back)

And yes, that is Boba Fett shooting him.  Star Wars fans unite!

I got no pre-wedding photos.  I got no wedding ceremony photos.  But after the event I broke out the camera! The first thing I saw was my brother with our grandparents.  Nannie and Pawpaw, on the right, have been married 68 years and still live alone in the house they built.  Oma and Papa, on the left, have been married 60 years and in the same house since I was born, 32 years ago.

Then I spotted my most pretty sister telling a tale to our Aunt Sherry, who was unwittingly nominated wedding coordinator about 30 minutes before the event.

  1. Sure love that Chevy truck! I wonder if the Armadillos that tear up our yard here in Georgia would taste as good as that Texas Armadillo? Beautiful wedding!
