Lenny Fritts, was waiting for us to plug in my microphone and do a sound check. He takes such good care of all that for me. Anyway, here we are talking about something but notice how the sun is still out but the wind is whipping around my hair and prayer stole.
The Sutherland wisely moved all the guests to the porch to wait it out and stay dry.
Sandfoot Photography was on the job despite the rain.
After the seating of the grandparents and the groom's parents and mother of the bride, Greg and the groomsmen and I took our places up front. Then it was time for the pretty bridesmaids. First was Amy. Normally you don't see a bridesmaid carrying an umbrella down the aisle! But, Ashlee was so prepared. She handed each bridesmaid and the best man one of these large pretty white umbrellas to have handy should the rain pick up.
Then there is Shante carrying her umbrella followed by Sandra, our maid of honor, who is also Greg's twin sister.
The Sutherland's Walled Garden is that the green grass is really green turf. So, no matter how wet it gets, there is no mud and our shoes do not sink into and get stuck in the ground. It is so wonderful and no need for any kind of walkway.
Greg and Katie have known each other eight years. They were in high school together and both were "band geeks" which they loved about each other. Both are very smart and stood out from the crowd to each other. When Greg went away to college, they realized then how strong their love for each other was and decided to spend their lives together. Wisely they waited until they both graduated from college and had jobs.
The pronouncement of marriage............
And then Greg planted a big kiss on Katie! They must have been practicing!
As I mentioned before, Allison with Sandfoot Photography was covering the wedding. What fun it is to work with Allison. She is so easy going.
Catering the wedding was Caffe Luna. Always great food. My thanks to Lenny Fritts for all his help with this wedding. He is a fantastic DJ too.
Salon 123 did Katie's beautiful hairdo. It was truly beautiful and the damp weather did not faze it.
Thanks again to Ashlee Adams, one of the owners of The Sutherland. She is always prepared for whatever needs to be handled. It is always a pleasure to do weddings with her.
