Best to Mary Lou and Ben, married four days so far. They got hitched at "The Farm" in Big Texas Valley north of Rome, Georgia. We were honored to be there and enjoyed a picturesque 36 hour adventure in the loving atmosphere that binds friends and strangers for a little while at weddings. But I'm a sentimental man.
It was out in the former pasture, it was hot, and it was perfect.
There was a dinner the night before.
I don't know who designed the stables. Anyone? Anyone?
The bridal party dressed here.
On Saturday we sampled Rome, there isn't anything in Georgia like Rome. You can drive right to the top of Myrtle Hill Cemetery and we did.
One view from Clock Tower Hill.
We had lunch on the Broad Street sidewalk and made some new friends. That's Dusty Mullinax with the flag, he's a SCAD and Sacred Heart Tattoo alum. This must be one of the best streets in Georgia.
The groom, the dad and the groomsmen prepared in this 40 second video.
At 0:27 I walk out to the venue itself.
It was an all ages event.
After dinner the first dances began.
Best wishes to Mary Lou and Ben and to all the loved ones.
