a festive wedding day in oklahoma city

Saturday, March 26: We start this beautiful Saturday morning by going back to Rosie’s son and daughter-in-law’s house for a bridal shower/brunch.  Sangria and mimosas are beautifully displayed.

The food spread is marvelous too.

Here are four of us with our mimosas.  The bride is ready for her big night tonight.

After we eat, the bride opens her multitudes of wedding gifts.

It’s a beautiful spring day out and we pose outside before heading out.

We have several hours to wander around before the 6:00 wedding.  We go to eat lunch and then go on a shopping spree!

Before 6:00, we arrive at the Clauren Ridge Vineyard & Winery to have some appetizers and drinks, then we go outside to wait for the wedding.  We’re lucky that it’s a gorgeous day.

After the wedding, of course photographs are taken with the wedding party while the rest of us go into the winery for drinks and appetizers.  Then we have a sit-down dinner.  Afterward, some of the guests dance, but I mostly enjoy watching Rosie dance with her multitudes of grandchildren.

At the end of the night, after many of the guests have left, we finally get a moment to take a picture with the bride.  She’s stunning, isn’t she?

What an exciting day for Rosie and her family.  I wish her infinite happiness. 🙂
