Going To The Chapel

Well, here I am on my second day of a two week spring break.  As promised, I am going to start the first part of "The Wedding" for you.

Early in the morning of February 11, we made our way to Knoxville to begin the wedding weekend festivities.  I can remember thinking, "Wow!  My son is really getting married tomorrow!"  "Wow!  I'm going to have a beautiful daughter now!" "Wow!  Kenny and I are going to be Pa and Gramma to a beautiful little girl!"  It was all so surreal!

The day began with a bridesmaids luncheon held at the bride's parents' home.  What a wonderful time I had with these lovely ladies and such wonderful food!

Just look at the yummy spread that we enjoyed!  Prepared by the bride's grandmother, aunt, and mother, this luncheon was inspired by the Apple Cake Tea Room in Knoxville.  The chicken salad was so good...the fruit...awesome...and the banana bread sandwiches...out of this world!!!  Delish for sure!

The "memory" table was beautifully set with a tablecloth and china that belonged to the bride's great-grandmothers, and silver and glassware that belonged to her grandmothers.  Now, Carrie will have another memory of this special luncheon with family and friends on the day before her wedding.

The bride {front}, maid of honor {third from left}, and bridesmaids gather for a couple of quick pics before heading out to run some last minute wedding errands together.

Such a princess!

While the ladies ran their errands, Kenny and I enjoyed some time with the groom...our wonderful son, Blake, at the tux shop. 

It was hard to believe that in less than 24 hours, this young man was going to be a husband...and a father!

Next post....
*Off to the Wedding Rehearsal*

So check back soon!  I'll meet you right here, and we'll pick up where we left off.
Hugs and Blessings,
