Well Folks, its the Day After The Night Before.

My Best Friend, a man who could have been my big brother if I had one which I don't, made his vows and joined with his bride last night.

Here's a pic of the bridal party & groom & bride's parents for your pleasure:

Wedding Party

I have to say that it was an honour and a priviledge to stand for him and his bride on the day of their wedding.  They are both true friends and I wish them nothing but true happiness in this life and in the next.

It was a beautiful ceremony.  The Reverand said it was the most authentic traditional Scottish wedding he's ever precided over.  Which was exactly what my buddy was going for.  There were many a time during the last year's planning process when he would say.."That's not period".  It became a running joke with me and the bride.  Whenever we'd talk about something that we thought would be cool for the wedding which wasn't period...we'd joke about it.  I have to say poking a little fun at his zest for authenticity helped keep the Bride's head screwed on tight, instead of COMPLETELY losing her mind.

The reception was a blast too.  They had a great celtic rock band called Gael Warning which my Mom compared to Seven Nations if you've seen them.  Which they reported was a grand compliment.  The food was fantastic.  I feel like I may never eat again.  =) 

I have to say it was a tad chilly to be without a cloak (WHICH I LEFT AT HOME DUH!!!!!!!!!!!)  But I do have one and I WILL be wearing this dress for ren fair next year.  WOOT!! 

I think its much better than what I currently use for garb:

     BTW--The Whole World, Mom (She's in the middle).  Mom, the Whole World
    The Whole World, Hubby (on the right).  Hubby, the Whole World.

My Mom wants to get a dress made by the same person who made the bride's dress. So we're gonna work on that.  However, if she does, we're gonna have to take two cars b/c I could barely cram my dress in the front passenger seat of my Saturn.  I had to be "smashed" into the car for the trip to the ceremony & back to the hotel.   And if Mom gets Elnara to make her a dress too there will be no fitting us into the same car.   =)  Which I guess is not a bad thing.

Looks like a beautiful wedding and not the norm. But where are the pink combat boots?

Like I said, my shoes didn't matter b/c you couldn't see my feet anyway. ;)

For the record though, I wore navy blue ballet flats.
