Backyard Wedding

DS the Younger, who was born at home, then schooled at home, has now been married at home!

^DD#3 made this awesome metal sign for the new couple.

^Prepping the ceremony area.

^Working on the reception space.

^Everyone was lending a land getting things ready.

^Green tablecloths got matching green centerpieces, blue tablecloths got blue.

^The sweet tea and lemonade eventually were put out on the bar. Board games were available for anyone who didn't want to dance.

^The groom sticking the cake topper on the cake.

^In lieu of a guest book, guests were invited to "leaf them a tweet".

^Photo timelines were hung along the walls.

^The groom all spruced up!

^The best man literally has the groom's back ;-)

^My four stateside kids. DS the Elder, DD#3, DS the Younger, and DD#2

^The Bride making her way down the stairs.

^ Saying their vows with horrible gusts of wind. Note the maid of honor and the best man holding the arch in place. The veil kept blowing around so much, the bride finally took it off and the maid of honor is holding it.

^Sealed with a kiss, the deed is done! The newest Mr. and Mrs. Rains!

^Their first dance as man and wife. It was sprinkling a little, but I told my new daughter to get used to it, she was a Rains now.

^The twins liked the dancing best of all.

^Weather cleared up before the couple left for their one night honeymoon.

A happy couple on their way!
