Last night when we went to bed, the weather forecast was calling for a good chance of rain for today. Luckily, we did have a back-up for the wedding ceremony (an older church that is on the Historical Society's land), but when we woke up this morning...the rain had been taken out of the forecast! It was to be mid-70's and partly sunny. In other words: PERFECT for an outdoor wedding. All of the girls headed uptown to Katie's hair stylist, but before we left, Ma-maw had to steal a kiss!
I thought this was a great picture of GG and Aunt Katie before the wedding
It is common in Iowa for the wedding party to go to a local bar (or two) after the ceremony and before arriving at the reception. Unfortunately, Humboldt only had one bar open that time of the day, but we still had a fun time driving down the main street and enjoying a few drinks!
Once we arrived at the party, they cut the cake before serving the meal - that way people could grab a piece at their convenience.
