Let's Get This Right: Rehearsal

Following a busy morning of set-up and a bustling lunch hour with several of Kathleen's visiting family members dropping by, it was finally time for wedding rehearsal. The Big Day is only 24 hours away! 

Kathleen gave the assembled wedding party some preliminary instructions.
Kathleen's good friend Anna was also the wedding officiant. She was ordained on-line and took her role very seriously. (Side note:  she and her fiance also helped me after the wedding ceremony by toting plates and silverware to the buffet tables. Thank you, Anna!)
Since Friday was rather rainy, we had to imagine where chairs and hay bales would be on Saturday. Final details of the ceremony were discussed and agreed upon by many of those in attendance.
Great niece and Flower Girl, Sophie, came straight from school to practice her role. (She was a tiny bit bored at times.)
Patrick and his soon-to-be father-in-law, Tim, practiced their handshake.
Check out the tables in the bar area! Scott and Pat did a great job of creating these by drilling holes on the underside of big log slices, then inserting three rebar legs. Making sure the tables were level was made easy by simply pushing one leg or the other further into the ground. How much do you think we could sell these for? Maybe we should go into the bar-table-making business.
The pallet bar that the boys worked so hard on finally has a home on the patio. Now we just need the wine, beer, ice, and a couple hundred thirsty wedding guests!
After a fun pizza party at Kathleen's parents home, Friday came to a close with a slumber party in noTTafarm's "guest suite." Kate, Sophie, and Kathleen ate peanut butter toast, watched an Alvin and the Chipmunks dvd, and had fun with Wilson before finally going to sleep - perhaps to dream about the magical wedding the next day.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
