Nora’s Wedding

++Edit: I took the photos out.++

Yesterday was a perfect day for a wedding. It was warm, with no visible clouds, and a slight breeze. The drive wasnt bad at all. It took about an hour, including a stop to get gas and breakfast. (It was Steve's idea! He complained he was hungry!) Alan & Nora used the same judge that presided over Oda & HG's wedding. It was a quick ceremony. Steve & I got there about 10 mins prior to the ceremony starting. But we werent the latest ones. Technically, we werent late. The invite said 11:30am. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Cocktail hour was an event NOT to be missed. There was a station for sushi. Rows upon rows of rolls. One could swim in it if one wanted to. It wasnt the generic chinese buffet rolls either. I didnt make a stop (I didnt have to- a platter was left at my table courtesy of HG- he had to take family photos), so I dont know exactly what was there. Then there was a station for chilled seafood, which consisted of whole lobsters cut in halves and shrimp cocktail. Steve went to one of the hot cooked food stations and got himself lamb chops and steak. There was another station of cooked food, but I dont remember what it was. I now regret not eating much at that time. That car ride, although it wasnt bad at all, got me a little sick. We were then ushered into the dining area and waited, with some games and dancing in between, for our entrees. Man, them old people know how to cut up a rug. Lots of music for the waltz and some other old music that these folks knew how to dance to. And not just a little two-step. It was real deal, show dancing. They were my entertainment before the entree. Dessert was excellent, too. Chocolate fondue, ice cream & apple pie, some type of cake, cheesecakes, tarts, and fruits. All in all, it was several hours of yummy deliciousness!

Oda made me get up to catch the bouquet, and I tried to hide. Many a'times. When I saw her coming, I'd run the other way and hide behind someone. Of course, she saw me, and pointed. So I ended up standing at the back of the single females, and hoping that Nora couldnt throw far. It was a good throw, but the stupid chandelier was in the way, and it hit off of that. A little girl picked up the flowers, but was forced to give it one of the bridesmaids. Steve didnt even bother going to catch the garter. By the way, I'm glad only the older folks danced. I'd be ashamed to watch these younger kids embarrass themselves on the dance floor. I dont think many of them knew how to dance.....including, sad to say, the groom and his brother...

Nora's dresses were amazing. My favorite was her wedding dress, of course. Although the red one was real nice too. I thought the pink one was pretty, but not as nice as the others. Oda had a very nice dress too. Very provocative. I dont think I have a picture of her back, but if I find one, I'll post it up. Let's just say, if I didnt have an imagination, I didnt need one! Haha. Okay, it wasnt bad. A fat chick wouldnt have been able to pull that off, I tell ya'! The men looked regular. Steve, of course, looked the best with his peach-colored shirt. He didnt take his jacket off so you couldnt see that it was short-sleeved. I was able to sneak a photo in, though. :-)
