Okay, the pics are uploaded. They are edited to the best of my ability. And now I can share! The weekend was a whirlwind of activity, but I'm pretty sure the Bride and Groom had a blast celebrating with their nearest and dearest.
I'm also pretty sure that I will remain in a zombie state for the remainder of the work week, due to extreme fatigue, sore muscles, and hoarse throat.
Thursday night we had a Dinner Party to kick-off the wedding weekend.
I hear it's a good idea to gorge yourself on the first night with delicious BBQ, especially if you have to fit into a bridesmaid's dress.
Husband, Me, Sister
Bride and Groom
Friday morning got started with Sister's Bridesmaid's Luncheon.
Chicken salad, orzo salad with shrimp, fruit salad, and muffins.
I also hear it's a good idea to ask for seconds of the orzo salad with shrimp if you have to fit into a bridesmaid's dress the next day.

Sister and Her Bridesmaids
Mother-in-Law (in the pink) had her Bridesmaid's Luncheon here too when she got married, at the home of Mrs. Cravens.
Liz (in the blue) was a bridesmaid to MIL.
Virginia (in bridesmaid pic above on Sister's Left) is Sister's Maid of Honor and the daughter of Liz.
It all comes full circle in this family...
And Friday night culminated in a gorgeous Rehearsal Dinner, thrown by the groom's parents.

We had the Groom's favorite for dessert.
Brownie, vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, whip cream, and a cherry on top.
Rumor has it that the Bride and a couple of her Bridesmaids had an impromptu dance party after the Rehearsal Dinner when they realized that Sister was getting married the very nextday. Moves were busted, even without any tunes.
Good thing there's no photographic evidence of said dance party.
