it's my kind of wedding when the beautiful bride
walks down with a beer in her hand!

their first dance as old married lady
and bearded married man

Kaylee and her daddy (Jay) taking their turn.
They started off all teary eyed and stuff
and then got all


I love the look on their faces, they were ready to turn it out!!

Carol and Jay
the GORGEOUS setting on Lookout mountain

Brian and Alex do not like to dance.
As you can see from these pictures, those two can't say no to Hannah :)

me and Carol's baby girls

I love this lady :)

they were having the time of their lives!

and these two were still dancing having the time of their lives

howdy there partner, you look like my ole man.

My girlfriend next door Carol is having a double whammy this year. Both of her children are getting married. Her daughter got married over Memorial Day weekend on top of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tn. And her son is getting married in October here in Georgia at a winery. Carol and I have shared lots of good times and memories together in the last 4 and a half years that we've been friends (and neighbor's). This night was by far one of the best. She is at a time in her life that I DREAD. Everyone moved out, starting on their own as adults. She comes to my house sometimes just to sit and listen to the noise.
She is like me, she functions better in organized chaos.
We started "cocktails on the porch" last year, sorry it's an exclusive club not open to the public.
I told her the other day, we need to have a club meeting ASAP. There's lots to discuss. The first order of business is, how in the hell she held it together the whole evening?!! I had an ugly cry headache for two days!
Second order of business is how to grow old gracefully, being an amazing woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister and FRIEND, and making it look effortless all at the same time.
I love you girl and we were so excited to share in this day with you all!!

Looks like so much fun.

I'm with you. I can't imagine the empty nest!

But, roots and wings we must give them. And life marches on. Hard to believe how quickly it does, though.
