 Coverage of the DiPalma-Woo Wedding continues.....


Two lovebirds atop the capilla at El Rancho de las Golondrinas are a good luck omen for the wedding rehearsal.....
 The scene is set:  earlier in the day, Uncle Louie and Aunt Sisi and we Capshaws hauled all the potted plants and arbor designed by Chiara to the ranch and set it up.
 Then Dwight and I set up the aisle with the logs Waymon cut and started setting up the benched seating......

 Enjoying a break in the shade.....

 This shaded table is one of my favorite places on the ranch.....

 When we were about half-way done....

 We took another break....

 We noted this lovely view of the Bride's entry for the next day's photos.....

 And tried it out....

 Photo-op noted.....
 And soon the fabulous bridal couple arrived.....

As well as all the major participants......
The bride is looking particularly "Audrey Herpburnish" this evening....

 And she's ready to get the show on the road....

 The mothers are ready to roll....

 As are the siblings....

 And the groom....

 Even the sheep....

 So after some advice from the photographer....

 And the signal from the "Field Marshal""--we're ready to go....

 Michael's parents....
The Capshaws......
 Anna and Ethan....
 Chaddie (sp?) and Shannon....
 Meekie and her honey (standing in for a missing groomsman)
 Giano (the bride's brother) and Candy (the groom's sister)

 Frannie and her escort...

 The Best Man and the Maid-of-Honor Kiki.  (Now, THAT'S the way that dress was designed to be worn......)
Da girls...

Da Guys....
 The wedding tableau.....

 Here comes the bride....
 And she's looking very happy too.....

 Makeshift bouquet.....
The successful "handover"....
 View from the top....
 They have to rehearse EVERYTHING....

 A lot....
 The critics.....
 The beaming couple.....
 Yup, they practiced EVERYTHING....
 Now the exits.....
 "Hmmm, I wonder if I am REALLY gaining a son and not losing a daughter."......
 There's room for more (including Frannie who had already left)
 Good luck tomorrow to a wonderful couple.......

 Movie Starrrrr!
 In a couple of weeks, we will be celebrating our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary....
 And some day, these guys will be too....

 So the whole stellar cast is ready....

For all the wonders tomorrow will bring.....
