It was on the outdoor patio of a restaurant in Cambria. The temperature was suppose to be a bit nippy at 65 degrees. The forecast forgot to mention one small item-----
Outdoor wedding. Hmmmm.
But we got lucky. Ninety-five percent of the patio was covered.
So at 10 am we began our work.
My friend Kathy cut ribbon. By the way, Kathy hates to have her picture taken so I had to take this one and post it because....well, because.....

And on the tables? You might ask.... Well, a great idea.....
An assortment of tin cans with various cut flowers and CHOCOLATE CHEWS!
I really don't know which one I liked best. But each table was different and stunning.
And the whole thing turned out like this:
And then the fun started..

There is a story there. You see, Melodie wanted her dear friend Patrick as her witness. That made him the Maid of Honor. Since, according to tradition, the maid of honor must wear a dress, the entire male portion of the wedding party decided to wear the next best thing--kilts!

The entire place erupted in laughter and my Melvin was heard by all when he (rather loudly) labeled the answer "Rookie Mistake!!"
They finally got married.
And the people stuck around. Eating, drinking, talking, laughing. But the best part for me was that all of Melodie's family was there.
|Manuel (her Dad), Michelle (step-mom) JR, Melodie, me, and Melvin.|
Oh, and, as you can see, the rain stopped.
Cuz, well, IT
