Friends and family made the wedding perfect for Tara and Kelly

Tara is Rene’s supervisor at the credit union. Rene is building her portfolio so that she can take on some professional photo jobs. She would not let Tara pay her so we slipped some money into her purse. Rene took a ton of photos and I can’t wait to see them.

Cindy, Tara and Kim. Cindy and Tara have been best friends for twenty-two years. Cindy gave a toast and that made many of us cry.

Cousin Erika, Cindy, Tara and Kim. Erika was pretty much in charge of creating all of the crafty stuff. She and her mother sewed fifty chair covers. Erika and her husband Alan made the arch that the ceremony took place under.

Tara with my sister Debi whose yard the wedding took place in. Debi loves to entertain and be in charge so she was in her element that day.

Kim and Rob are very good friends of Tara and Kelly’s. Two years ago when they got married TnK were their witnesses. Kim wrote the vows and did an excellent job even though a couple of times she started to cry while reading them. Rob was in charge of the music and video camera.

I would be a really bad mother or grandmother if I didn’t post a photo of TnK’s gurlz. Cindy walked down the aisle with them and then they had to give love to TnK when the ceremony was over.

OMG! The wedding is tomorrow.

If you have been following my blog you know that my daughter Tara is getting married tomorrow. I can’t believe that her special day is almost here. Everything has been ready for some time. Tomorrow morning Tara, her friend Cindy, my niece and I will go pick up the flowers. Then we will head out to St. Helens where the wedding will take place. Tara has an appointment for a pedicure and massage which was a bridal shower gift from some family members. She is having a hard time letting it go. She wants to make sure everything is ready for her wedding. My niece has reassured her that she can go have her massage and when she gets back to her aunt’s house everything will be done and ready for the wedding.

Kelly’s mother arrived yesterday. She lives in Colorado and is here for 10 days. I asked Tara if we could go out to dinner before the wedding so I do not meet Elva for the first time at the wedding. So tonight we are going out to dinner.

The weather today is forecasted 70 degrees with rain likely. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 75 degrees and partly cloudy. I am crossing my fingers that there will be no rain. There is no backup plan for the outdoor wedding if it should rain. The wedding date was originally in June but Tara was too stressed out by everything following her recovery from her near death incident and work stuff that they moved the date to August 2nd. The chance of rain is usually less likely in August compared to June also. Photos and wedding stories will be my next post.
