...and she is marrying a crazy man tomorrow at sunrise.
That's right...5:39 A.M. IN THE MORNING!!!!
Her soon to be husband is a sorta-Buddist and the sun (rise and set) is an important part of their relationship so those of us who want to witness their wedding ceremony need to get our sleepy selves down to the new courtyard park next to the ocean here in my town.
I am the old maid of honor so I have to be there, of course (I would anyway) and I have to wear my dress and everything for photos. I'm just putting my hair up in a bun and throwing on a little makeup but that's it.
It is POURING out right now (10PM) but it is supposed to stop overnight. We never even made a weather contingency plan!
The reception is not until 4pm at her house (so sunset will be included) so it will be a long day, especially for her, with out of town guests all around.
I'll post pictures in a few days.
Here's my sister, Maureen, mother of 4 daughters, grandmother of 5, age 61, beautiful bride, sitting on her fiance's lap.
