We just went to a family wedding.
Actually, we just were all in a family wedding.
Mom's first cousin, Jon, was finally getting married after years and years of talking about it (I think it's been under discussion for over 4 years!)
Nina, the bride, has bonded into our family and the wedding party is primarily composed of family members; her sons by a previous marriage, Rosie and Abe as attendents, Zeyde (Jon's uncle) as the best man and Ora as the maid of honor.
Why do I get the honor of primary female attendent? I was the one who kept pushing for them to get married.
But to start off the weekend, Rosie got in more than 2 hours of highway driving (each way). She drove us out to the western part of the state (and back)- and did a very nice job of it-even in heavy traffic at times in both directions. She also finished her drivers' ed lessons and started the actual driving lessons part this past week.
But back to the wedding. Nina decided that she wanted a 1920s (or 30s or 40s) themed wedding. It was based on the fact that I had a gorgeous flapper dress that I had gotten for Rosie's Bat Mitzvah party, and it went from there. Her boys were in Zoot suits & zeyde wore an old-fashioned style tuxedo. The groom wore white tux and the bride was in a traditional wedding gown.
And Rosie wore a teal dress with old-time styling.
And everyone was beautiful!! And a wonderful time was had by all. And Abe actually socialized and talked to people- especially at the rehearsal dinner before he was all socialized out! But boy, are we all tired!
