This weekend Melissa’s brother Andrew married his fiance Melissa (whose name is now Melissa Nash– how about that?). The wedding was under the arbor at the Nash’s church’s campground, and was one of the most fun weddings we’ve been to. And easily the longest blog post ever.
Morgan and Margaret are some of our favorite kids in the world. Margaret is helpfully missing a tooth, and Morgan usually wears pink. We see them about once a year, and now they’re old enough to remember us every time, which makes the first hour or so less awkward.
Austin quickly found his way to the cupcake tree (handmade by Bill Nash and a friend), and spent the whole reception eating frosting and sawdust. There were cupcakes with the frosting cleaned off left all over the campground.
After the family reception at the campground, we headed to Micky Dee’s (no, not the Golden Arches, but you might remember it from the Christmas karaoke post) for the adult reception. There were leftover cupcakes, which Bass very graciously served (actually earlier he was using Bud Light trays). “Take a cupcake.” No thanks, I’m fine. “TAKE A &@%*#^ CUPCAKE!” Why, I don’t mind if I do.
- Harley T-shirts. One girl had one that said “Does this bike make my butt look fast?” And of course, “IF YOU CAN READ THIS I THREW THE &^%^# OFF.” Excellent.
- A girl at Micky Dee’s was intent on making sure everyone had a great time. She danced with Melissa’s uncle Peter and her dad.
- Music. Guests were seated to Jimi Hendrix, “Foxy Lady.” The groomsmen walked in to ZZ Top’s “La Grange,” and the bride entered to “Bad to the Bone.” The recessional was Elvin Bishop’s “I Fooled Around and Fell in Love” (you know, “I must have been through about a million girls…”).
- The bride’s dress had very subtle white flames around the bottom.
- A band called Rockasaurus was playing at Micky Dee’s. I have since learned that they are “the Southeast’s best classic rock live band for any occasion.” Pretty impressive.
It was a great weekend and we are so happy to have Melissa and the kids in the family!
