Wedding Crasher!

I kind of crashed a wedding on Saturday. Kinda sorta, but not really. Brenda & Tom were invited along with Tom's friend Eric. B suggested I tag along as Eric had responded for two to attend the wedding/reception - but was actually going alone. They didn't have to ask me twice! I drove up with Brenda and Tom rode with Eric (so I was actually B's date!). The wedding was in Belfair (near Shelton). Belfair & Shelton have the distinctive reputation for being 'scummy' towns. I was really intrigued as I wanted to know what kind of couple wanted to get married in Belfair! I was in for a surprise as the wedding was held at a beautiful home & the property = well - if it wasn't in Belfair - I would have loved to live on it! Ten landscaped acres with a huge shop (Omid's dream property!).

On our way!
When we were almost there - we saw this sign! Scary!!
*This actual photo was taken off the internet - we were driving too fast to get the sign (plus I may have been too scared to get out of the car to snap the photo!)

Reception tent. Read on to find out why there were no chairs!

Waiting for the ceremony to begin.

The ceremony was really nice! It was held outside. The minister said one thing I thought was great. He said whenever anyone in the crowd touched their wedding rings, they should remember their spouse and pray for them. I liked that!

After the ceremony, we were told to carry our chairs to the reception tent. Funny - but I am glad we didn't have to stand!

The kiss!

Tom's friend Eric told B & I go inside the house. We found lots of taxidermied animals.
This goat was a favorite.

I thought this was an interesting way to make sure no one gets your cup:
Just stick it in your pocket.

Okay-I was shocked at this man's outfit FOR A WEDDING!!!

A Harley-Davidson tank top?! Really!?

Eric, Tom, B & me.

The dance floor. B only danced to one song with me & ( had to be forcibly taken to the dance floor).

Dancing to Sweet Home Alabama

Dance B Dance!

Al in all - I had a great time and am so glad I went! Thanks for your extra ticket Eric!
