Going to the Chapel...

...and we're gonna watch my niece get married!

It's here! Wedding weekend!! Queen B headed down to Petticoat Junction yesterday and has already reported on the current status of the wedding venue (it sounds lovely). She managed to arrive without a flat tire, which makes our family 1 for 2 in successful attempts at reaching the site. Hugh and I are hoping to make it 2 for 3 later this morning.

I'm basically prepared for the trip; I have my camera gear packed and ready to go, which, is really the most important thing, when one considers the fact that I am responsible for documenting the day for the bride and groom to look back over the rest of their natural lives. But, no pressure or anything.

All nervousness aside (mine obviously, I'm sure the bride and groom are cool as cucumbers about the whole deal), I am really looking forward to seeing my sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and other far-flung relatives who are making the journey for the wedding. I love these kinds of events and it has been a really long time since our family has had one (this is a HUGE departure from my childhood, when some member of our large extended family was getting married on the regular).

Labor Day weekend weddings are a Friday favorite, for sure (try saying that five times, fast); Hugh and I had one ourselves, 25 years ago, and, I'm so excited to share this experience with the Rodeo Princess and her fella.

Happy Friday, y'all!
