Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married...
Ok, more like going to the park and bringing the chuppah.
Mom and Dad's friends, Tanya and Mike, got married over the weekend in a beautiful ceremony at the park. We were all a little worried about the weather, but it turned out to be a clear, remarkably temperate evening.
They didn't get any pictures of the ceremony, which is a bummer, but it really was nice. And Dad was totally enthralled with how the chuppah was put together.
The bride and groom were lovely, the food was great, and Mom even shook a tail feather -- in heels, no less. They got to re-connect with some former clerks and generally had a great time.
And I got cake, which is always fantastic. Mike's aunt made the wedding and groom's cakes. Mom and Dad were fortunate enough to sample some of the tastings that went along with that process. Delicious.
I'm kidding, they didn't have the armadillo cake from Steel Magnolias...
It was waaaaay better than that. And it had a little marzipan diorama of Tanya, Mike, and Maggie duck hunting in a canoe. Or maybe they were fishing. It was quite impressive.
