You are aces in my book. You took the brunt of Hurricane Arthur, and though we had torrential rain and strong winds over night and this morning, it didn’t start until AFTER the pre-wedding supper last night, and it ended a couple of hours prior to the outdoor wedding today. Yes, we were in mud. Yes, it was chilly. Yes, there was much work done all night and morning to drain the tent roof. Yes, chairs in the forest glade were outfitted with paper towels to wipe them off before sitting. Yes, the groom wore red chamois over his handsome outfit and the bride wore a sweater over her pretty dress. Yes, the camping friends found their way to local motels. Yes, many beautiful women wore wellies with their lovely summer wedding outfits.
But the wedding itself, all the love and wonderful words, the family reconnections, the meeting of new friends and family, the eating of good food, went off perfectly. It was a wonderful afternoon, and now it is official. Nephew D has a bride (A) and all is well in their world.
It also was a special weekend because all of the Maine relatives got to meet D’s brother Z’s new wife (E), here on her first visit to Maine from South Korea. Two special brothers and their new brides, no one getting soaked, and no one getting married in the garage. 🙂
So thanks, Atlantic Canada, for taking Arthur off our hands.
