Happily Ever After

9 Jun

AmandaSteveOur eldest granddaughter, the beautiful Miss ANV got married on Saturday evening to the handsome Mr. GSH.  The bride was radiant,  the groom was beaming, the weather cooperated, and all was well.  It rained stair rods on Friday and today was not a lot better, so they really were fortunate to have a mild, sunny day.

They chose to be married at a refurbished dairy barn way the heck out in the country, which was really a lovely setting. The “kids” did a lot of the work themselves. Granddaughter haunted thrift shops for vintage china, so each guest had a different plate, and they sprayed votive cups with gold paint to hold tea lights. The guest book was a globe she’d found someplace; The Squire turned it upside down and my brother-in-law and I signed it across Australia.  The holder for the wedding cards was a huge old birdcage; you poked the cards in between the wires. It would be a great idea for couples who get married in hotels and such, where thieves walk in and then saunter out with the “mail box”. A four foot birdcage is hard to slip under your coat.

The DJ was very, very good. Eldest Daughter (mother of the bride) had put us in the far corner, so we wouldn’t be blasted by loud music, but most of the songs were played at a reasonable level, and I even got The Squire up to do the Old Folks Shuffle once or twice.

We were back home by 9 PM, and tucked into bed by 10. No telling what the music was like after the fogies left, but a good time was had by all.

    I loved their idea of signing the globe. What creativity and it is something that will not be put away in a box to rarely be seen,
