My uncle’s wedding was this past weekend. I’ll be posting a few days of photos. The blog will return to normal next week.
They met on a blind date – set up by the groom’s brother. She suggested a restaurant that happened to be his favorite – so he proposed. That time was a joke. Turned out she loved his motorcycle, his dog, and his mom. He got past the fact that she doesn’t love bluegrass. So the next proposal was in earnest.
I haven’t had a chance to tell her stories about him yet. I don’t think she knows that as a teenager he had a glow in the dark poster of the band KISS. That thing terrified me. But it’s also proof his musical tastes have some flexibility.
We’re getting a kick out of having a new aunt. And the fact that she is our age (or, ahem, a bit younger). Lots of members of the extended family live hear the new couple. If she can handle our chaos, well, she’s impressive. Even some of us have our limits with the crowds we create.
