No, I’m not going to talk about my daughter’s wedding (4 1/2 weeks away–ack!) But this past weekend, Bruce, the girls and I attended my nephew’s wedding, which was just so adorable, I have to share.
It was a country-western barn wedding. They’re both farm kids, both love animals and working outside, so when a friend of theirs offered his big, super-cool barn (which houses classic cars instead of animals) they jumped at it. The bride wore a gorgeous gown…with white cowboy boots! All the bridesmaids wore cute dresses and boots, and the groom & his groomsmen wore dress jeans and plaid shirts. The ceremony–officiated by my own dear husband, isn’t he cute!–was held on the water. While it had been a rainy day, for the most part, just before the ceremony, the sun came out and drenched the couple in sunbeams. Just glorious.
I actually sang at the wedding and wasn’t too shabby. The reception was inside the barn, with lots of fabulous barbeque from Famous Dave’s. Tons of dancing, (drinking) and fun ensued.
So, tell me, have you ever been to a nontraditional wedding like this? What’d you think?
I loved it!
