The Wedding

Hello! I’m back. We have had a very busy week, but the wedding is over and it was beautiful. Thank you to those who prayed for us. Even though my husband and I are not totally well, we were well enough to participate. It was an answer to prayer. I’m so thankful for times like this, because I get to see the Lord work.
Friday night was the rehearsal and dinner. The dinner was at a very traditional Japanese restaurant. We sat on the tatami floor on “pillows.” It was o.k. until it was time to get up. All of us middle-aged foreigners had a hard time with that one! The picture below is of the appetizer.

Everything is raw. There is salmon, tuna, shrimp, a fish head with his body curled up, dikon, lemon, squid, oysters, etc. I had a piece of tuna and some dikon. That was about all I could handle. I am learning to eat some strange things, but sometimes a little is more than enough. 🙂

The happy couple! My sister-in-law was one of my best friends in college. I remember the day she called me to tell me she was expecting her daughter. The years have rolled by too quickly! This is my first niece to be married. It won’t be long until it is one of my own.


All of the bride’s family that was in Japan.

On a comical note. . . At the mother of the bride’s wedding one of the groom’s brothers fainted and had to be carried off the platform during the wedding. It must be a family tradition. . .the bride’s 2 brothers fainted this time. As soon as the oldest recovered and was starting to come back in, the next one went. The bride’s mother and I just looked at each other and smiled. It was dejavu! The guys posed for this after the wedding. My son is the handsome guy that is fourth from the left, next to the groom.

The bride wore her mother’s dress which was worn by her mother as well. Three generations of brides! I met my husband at the bride’s mother’s wedding. He caught the garter and I caught the bouquet.

She was a beautiful bride!
