Today was the day of the potato wedding. It wasn’t really a potato wedding; we did not go watch two starry-eyed potatoes exchange vows. We saw two friends joined forever, in the sight of God and several hundred other witnesses. And we ate a lot of potatoes. Would you believe it didn’t cross my mind to get a single picture of all the electric roasters filled with whipped potatoes? Oh, and I also neglected to get pictures of the bride and groom. Don’t ever hire me as your wedding photographer, OK?
But I did get a picture of this little gal. I’m afraid all the little girls under the age of 10 may have paid more attention to her than to the bride.
Did I say under 10? Maybe I should have said under 20.
The wedding cake and the groom’s cake. One is simple and elegant. One is a gigantic tower of doughnuts. Draw your own conclusions about the bride and groom.
Way in the back, at the corner of the building, you can see the coffee/iced tea station where I lived during the reception. It was a good place to be.
The bride’s brother is good buddies with Calvin.
I can’t resist sharing a pic of my own groom.
The inside of the barn as festivities were winding down.
I didn’t get a pic of today’s happy couple, but somebody else did. He’s pretty good at this stuff.
