(Okay, not really...but it WAS high-paced and great and long and just FANTASTIC. Gah.)
I woke that morning around 7:30, took a cold shower (not of my own volition--the water took FOREVER to heat up in the hotel), and was ready to leave by 8:15. Unfortunately, none of the others were ready to leave until 11. -_-; But after we FINALLY got there at noon (after getting lunch from Subway and extra nommage from Publix) things were better. Much better. :D
Also, I should mention that it was far colder than we expected it to be. Don't let that clear, sunny sky fool ya--it was about 65 F, with 20 mph wind. My little thin velvet coat was the only jacket I brought, and consequently I was cold almost the whole time. Sigh.
Olivia had hijacked my camera at this point, hence some of these I did not take. XD
Okay, I LOVE this picture. From left to right we have:
April, Amanda (two sisters staying with the Acevedo's), Anna (who also happened to be the photographer), and mah new bro Obi. (He calls me 'lil sis', but he's only about an inch taller than me. o_e)
She and her sisters are all so gorgeous. It's sickening. XD
Knowing the songs? Sort of. Getting to practice the first time the day of? Yup. Five hours 'til the ceremony? Yup. Ahh, I love winging it, don't you? XD
Also, a point I would like to make: Gabe has been playing fiddle for only five years. And yet, he is AMAZING at it. (I mean, not that I wouldn't expect him to be amazing...but I was always under the impression that it took many, MANY years to become really accomplished.) It's just astounding.
Okay! Next post deals with the actual wedding, and there may be residual posts of things that I miss and Barberville and all that...so please bear with me while I sort through all these pictures that I have.
Until next time I remain,
