Wedding day

Well, I've been in California for 12 days - quite a while, actually. These 12 days have been pretty crazy, though. Tessy's wedding was originally going to be at the end of September, but for various reasons, she and Ryan decided to get married earlier and have a smaller wedding than they'd originally planned (no, she's not pregnant). They also decided to have the wedding here at Mom and Jim's house.

Since I got here it's been a whirlwind of trying to get everything and everyone ready for the wedding. I've been in on shopping for the wedding dress, the maid of honors's dress, the mother of the bride's dress the flower girl's dresses, the food and booze, the flowers, the decorations and a whole lot more. I've been to the mall in Roseville at least 6 or 7 times since I've been here. I'm happy I was here to be a part of everything, but I must say that it hasn't been stress free. Emotions have been running high....

But, the wedding is today. The weather is gorgeous, although perhaps a bit warmer than we would have preferred (infintely better than the 100 degree weather we had last weekend, though). Preparations are under control. We're a ways away from being totally ready, but we still have 10 hours until the guests arrive. But it will be a beautiful wedding in a fantastic location with a gorgeous bride and groom!
