A fancy city florist came down to do the beautiful flowers first thing on Saturday. The sedum is in the bride's bouquet.
Felix's arbor was dressed in greens and white blossoms.
The chairs were set and ready.
I had the honor of pinning all the boutonnieres on the gentlemen.
Honey, you're making me cry.
Fast-forwarding to after the ceremony (these are the Composer's pictures and he didn't shoot anything During the Wedding--he's a civilized person).
The bridal party did a quick photo shoot nearby while the guests made their way towards the reception pavilion. That was a lot of good-looking.
All the food was prepared by a crew of Tia's friends--I think they are caterers. I know they are Jamaican, and I believe they stayed up all night to cook, bless them. We ate very well, with four kinds of chicken, fried plantains, rice and peas . . . .
As a junior bridesmaid, Daisy was seated with the wedding party. I don't believe we'd have ever heard the end of it if she had been seated elsewhere. She would have felt it keenly.
Felix toasting (with sparkling apple juice).
A traditional game. These two were good sports.
Felix and Molly.
The cake was traditional Jamaican Black Fruit Cake--not as black, we were assured, as it would have been if it were a Christmas cake. I couldn't eat any because of the gluten, but you better believe I enjoyed the smell. I love fruitcake!!
We're in-laws now! In case you're wondering, I didn't make my dress.
Giles says thanks and goodbye. They went off to change and slip away.
Only family came to see them off, which was kind of sweet.
We were all getting tired.
Oh, they're married now, you can tell!
That's a red sports car! Giles had rented a "beige Kia" and was surprised with an upgrade--a little lagniappe from the Lord.
