PEOPLE GETTING MARRIED AND STUFF!
Lots of setting up of things and prep work. Mom and I tied name tags to a bunch of mason jars with pieces of hemp rope for everyone to write their name on their own class for the wedding/reception. Dad was helping in the kitchen most of the day along with his sister Patty (Ted's mom) and a few other family friends for the rehearsal dinner. Later that afternoon, the rehearsal happened. It was pretty nonchalant and funny to watch as everyone was goofing off most of the time. If you haven't figured it out yet, it was a pretty informal wedding.
The next day the everyone was sobbing tears of joy as they watched Ted and Carrie bind their lives together forever on a gorgeous day in the mountains of Tennessee. Post haste, the champagne was popped along with a lot of beer tabs and the reception dinner commenced! It really was perfect weather up there. The dinner was awesome and lots of people got up to say nice things and with the two of them well. Naturally I ate a ton but that wasn't a problem because everyone else overate too. It's what you're supposed to do at a celebration! The party started some time after that once the sun started to go down. They booked the Captain Midnight Band to play and they were amazing! Totally funky hippy hipster peeps that could play the most rockin songs in cover form as well as their own collection. I'd definitely go to see them in concert somewhere.
