My Little Sister’s Wedding

Tomorrow, on October 3rd, 2009, at 5pm, my little sister, Amber, will be getting married.  I am honored to be the maid-of-honor at this event, one of the most important in her life, and Amber's fiance, Blake, has asked Baret to be his best man.  It will be a day of laughter and tears, smiles and longing.

Though he will not be with us in the flesh, none of us have a solitary doubt that our beloved Pa-Pa Riley will be there in spirit.  There's no way in this world - or any other, for that matter - that he'd miss one of his grandchildren's weddings.  Amber will have him close at heart and hand by wearing a pin he was fond of and wrapping one his handkerchiefs around the stem of her red rose bouquet.

The wedding will be fairly small (around 50 or so people) and intimate, at The Dreyfuss House in Livonia, Louisiana.  We are hoping for fair weather - no rain and some cool air to keep off the warmish humidity that has seeped back into the atmosphere after this week's earlier cool.  We will miss the full moon by one night, but that lovely, opaque orb will be high and bright enough to still cast a lovely glow among the guests choosing to socialize on the outside patio.  Indoors will be hot jambalaya, plenty of good food and treats, and of course, the gorgeous wedding cake - the work of Mom, Amber, and our stepfather, Tommy.

I cannot wait to be able to post back here with photos of the blushing bride - my sister is a consummate blusher, being so very shy, so I'm sure she'll have no problems filling that age-old tradition!  I've seen her once in her dress, and she was absolutely beautiful.  I cannot wait to see my future brother-in-law (my first anything-in-law, actually!) looking all dapper in his suit with his twinkling blue eyes that are always filled with sweet mirth.  They will be the most lovely just-married couple this side of the bayou, if I do say so myself.

And now, I am off to get some beauty rest before the big day.  It all starts fairly early, with Baret and I doing some last-minute running around before I go in for a mani/pedicure at 9am and Baret, a haircut.  From there, I rush to Maringouin to start helping Mom with the food trays while Amber and Amy, the matron-of-honor, start getting hair and make-up worked on.  Baret will be running all over Baton Rouge, picking up the keg, last minute items that can only be gotten in Baton Rouge, and (ssshh!) some things to "decorate" the couple's get-away car.

Look forward to photos and details on Sunday!

    I believe what you composed was very reasonable.
    But, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not saying your content isn't solid., but suppose you added something that
    grabbed people's attention? I mean Digitopus » Blog Archive » My Little Sister’s Wedding is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post titles to
    grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
