Wedding Day!

It is going to be another bee-yoo-ti-ful day in the Ozarks!

This morning is a mild, sunny morning and I am sitting on our shaded deck, drinking my second cup of coffee and getting my head ready for the events that take place later in the day. By wedding time (5pm) the afternoon temps will be in the 90f degree range (that's 32+ for you celsius folks), but the outdoor venue will be well shaded.

Hannah spent the night here last night and spent a few moments with me this morning before starting out on her busy day. She is meeting the girls for brunch and then they'll get their hair done and whatever else they have planned before meeting us this afternoon at the venue to set up for the wedding and reception. I have to admit that I didn't sleep very well last night and woke up several times thinking about the day and the things that I want to say. Much of the afternoon ceremony is just in my head. The Scripture reading, the vows, the ring exchange -- those things are written down. The welcome, intro to the ceremony, the giving away of the bride stuff -- is all in my head.
Maybe that's why I couldn't sleep!

In any case, it will be a simple ceremony and it will be relatively short.
I'm sure that the guests will be pleased as it will be a warm, humid day -- typical for June in the Ozarks. After the ceremony, they can move into the air conditioned ballroom for the reception while the wedding party and family remain outside for pictures.

I am already looking forward to tomorrow -- and resting, ... or riding!

Well, I also have things to do this morning and should get after them.
It seems pretty crazy that my baby girl is getting married.

*heavy sigh*

Note: The woman at the venue told me they have never had the father of the bride officiate the ceremony before.

When you ask the groom 'do you promise to...', try not to sound to officious.
