A few years ago, my friend Sparky got married. I took a ton of pictures, but until now, never actually did anything with them. So let's reminisce.
I took the opportunity of a wedding to take a vacation, and spent the week prior traveling and exploring Nashville. To keep things relatively short, we'll skip ahead to the rehearsal dinner.
If you aren't the most social of people, maybe you distract yourself by looking out a window. And what's this I spy across the street?
In our own party, merriment ensues.
Speaking of good times, how's our date across the street going?
The rehearsal dinner over, it's time for the bachelor party!
Our wild stag night with the girls over, we head to bed. Tomorrow is the wedding, and we want to look our best. So we head off that morning for a quick trim.
Our grooming needs met, it's finally time to head to the wedding venue.
The cake picture out of the way, it's time to meet up with the bridesmaids and start rehearsing.
The ladies finish their part of rehearsal, and head off.
Now it's time for the men to rehearse.
Practice is over. And now it is the calm before the storm of guests arrive.
Actual wedding not pictured. But afterwards...
The wedding done, post-wedding pictures taken, and short one grumpy grandmother, we move on to the reception.
And then it's time for toasts! I wasn't supposed to prepare anything, was I?
And here, we come to the end. The bride and groom drove off into the inky blackness, and everybody else went back to their hotels.
