Getting ready for Shauna and Clay's Wedding


 Getting Ready

The day we've been preparing for has finally arrived.
We got to the cabin Friday morning and it was just one of
the most beautiful mornings I've ever seen.
We had so much to do, that we didn't even know where to
start.  We just started unpacking boxes and boxes and putting
order to them.  Thankfully most of them we're marked and
organized prior at home.  But there we're some last minute
of just throwing things in boxes to just get them in the truck
before leaving the next morning.
No matter how much you prepare, there is always and I
mean always last minute details you can't do till the few
days before the big day.
Friday we just the big centerpieces together and a few
other jobs but most of it was going to have to wait till
Saturday morning.
Saturday morning I woke to see that Shauna and Clay
had arranged a lot of the chairs, put out the chairs
 and had strung most of
the lights around railings and the pergola.
Clay's parents and sister had been fixing breakfast that
morning and it was so delicious. 
We we're getting so much done but still running out of
time.  How quickly time flies when you need more of it.
We we're starting to get ready when the afternoon clouds
started to move in and take over the blue skies that had
been so prominent. 
The ceremony was suppose to start at 5:00 pm and by
4:00 pm, you definitely could see on my phone the radar
showed showers headed our way.  So we cleared up all
the tablecloths, centerpieces, dinner ware and candy
tables up just in time when the rain drops began to fall.
Shauna just showed back up from being down town getting
her hair done.  She was calm and happy, not the crying
hysterical bride to be you think she would be. 
She said she knew it was going to clear up and be beautiful
the rest of the evening. 
Which is was.........
While it was raining, we all went and got dressed.
When the rain stopped, our family and friends hurried
and dried all the chairs and set everything up for the
ceremony.  They we're amazing and that is an understatement!
We got pictures of Shauna getting dressed and she was
the most beautiful bride to be EVER!!
I shed a few tears along the way. 
What can I say I'm an emotional
Before we knew it everything had fallen into place
and we we're all ready for the ceremony to begin.
 Saturday morning all the staging starts.

The view is still amazing even if it was raining an
hour before the ceremony was to start.
