Mom and I got to Owego, NY around noon and checked into our hotel! We were given our gift box full of fudge candy, that was rather yummy! We dropped stuff off in our room and saw a few people then headed over to Molly's parents house. We walked in and went upstairs. She looked like a princess. You would die for her! Her maids were in a cranberry color. She was in a white gown that made her look like Cinderella. Her hair was slightly pulled back with curls in it. She had a diamond like band and vale. Her dress rested below the shoulders and the top was all sequins. The bottom danced with her and was so gorgeous. We went back to the hotel and saw the Butler crew! I hung onto their car and went for a ride. We went for lunch then started to get ready. The ceremony was great! The one priest sounded like Jiles from Buffy, and I cracked up about his sermon.
The reception!! The receiving line was nice. We signed a book like thing, got our table numbers, got a drink, and mingled with more family. We went inside and everyone was announced. Molly was glowing the whole night! Toulson looked simply overwhelmed and thrilled! I lost my shoes since they were killing my feet and the food was Ok. Lilly, who is 14, was Molly's maid of honor and she had such a cute toast! There was just so much going on that night that it was just so nice. There were 35 Christmas trees spread out all over. There were lights draped from the ceiling, and it looked so elegant.
The people! I spoke with Kahoda for a while, he seemed all iffy to be around us. x.x Mr. Wood was there! I didn't get the chance to speak with him. La had wanted to come really badly, but couldn't make it. I would have loved to see her, she was my advisor ya know. ^^ My family was awesome! We had so many laughs. The table I sat at for the beginning sucked. They were stupid, immature, teens who had no manors! It was really great to see my family. I love them, even if I act like I hate 'em. They kinda grow on you.
After the wedding, I helped to load gifts into the cars. There was karaoke in the bar, but I was too tired to go. I didn't get to sleep until about 2 AM. I was up around 9AM, and we went to the breakfast brunch. It was a good last chance to see everyone. M&M loved their gift and send love to everyone! They are on their way to Jamaica on Monday!!
I will try to get pictures up here, I think I have a cute one of her and Mike. I'll make Tine scan them! >D
The other side
My grandfather, "Jan" died.
Around 2PM on Saturday we got a call. He wasn't feeling too well, was moved to CCU. Around 4PM, before we left for the wedding, we were in the parking lot. Mom's phone rang. He died. A heart attack.
My mom cried the whole night. The phone kept ringing. She didn't want to be there. She was a mess. I went back to the room to find her outside in the freezing cold without shoes on.
Me, on the other hand, I'm, as Meg said, "a brick." I only cried on Kelley Shanley's shoulder and Chuck's. Molly and Mike and Meg didn't need to see me all upset! It was their day! But then again..I just deal differently.
Bill Butler isn't coming. He's a fucking ass. My grandpa loaned him about 40-60 thousand dollars, he hasn't even paid us back. Yea, heh, so our lawyer is gonna give them a call, "Oh hey, we're collecting Jan's loans." Him and his wife are freaking moochers. His excuse is "I need to drive my daughter to Calif. from Col." She's don the drive before. They are now on my bad list. We went to his father's funeral, and my Papa was always the nicest man to them. They were 1st cousins.
His funeral is on Tuesday at 11 with a lunch following. There will be a service sometime in June.
