Wrapping Up Wedding Photos, Being The MOB Can Wear A Girl Out & Learning To Live With What Is Now In The Past.

Thank you all for your kind words regarding our ‘sick’ house.

MOB=Mother Of the Bride.

I wanted to share more wedding photos, so I can say I didn’t neglect anyone of the joyous day. Funny how it took so long to plan that magical day and *poof* it’s over. I can say though, I was more ‘present’ for Lolo’s wedding than for ours. That might have something to do with 100 less people. Less is more.

They are the prettiest couple. I can’t take ALL The credit, but I made HER. Ok, I’m gonna take a lot of the credit, because I MADE HER. If you can even imagine it, she is even prettier on the inside.

Nathan’s Mom and I assisted with the Handfasting/binding portion of the ceremony. I had no idea these two were kinky, but then again, they also own several sets of handcuffs, so there I go being naive again. Lauren said they came with the badge and uniform, but I’m not 100% sure.

“I now pronounce you, bound together for eternity you two lovely, selfless weirdos”

I said it before, but the venue was absolutely magical. I thought the kids were crazy for picking a venue two hours from our house, but clearly, they had a vision. Since we were in Tampa, we did as the Tampan’s and had a bonafide cigar roller on site. I didn’t partake since I gave up tampons. I mean, cigars. Hell, I gave up both. Max and Mattis had their own signature drinks; an Old Fashioned (Nathan’s fave) and a Margarita (a nod to my Mom).

You know how they say A Mother’s Work Is Never Done? Well, it is true. On the wedding day, not only did I have to wake up at the ass crack of dawn so my suite could be used for hair and makeup, later I was in charge of reappying Lolo’s lipstick, I also put on her veil, buttoned up her dress, put on her shoes and then, I had to pin on the Coach’s boutonnière before Binding the kids hands together. Truth be told, pinning the boutonniere was harder than it looked, so the photographer did it for me. Hey, I was tired by then!

This day will go down as The Very Best Wedding Ever.

Did you think I’d go through this whole post and not mention my hair? DO YOU EVEN KNOW ME?

I suppose in these photos, it really doesn’t look so bad, so maybe I’m actually getting over something, letting it go as they say. People, I believe that is called Personal Growth and I’d like a Gold-freaking-Star.

Thanks for enjoying the lovely photos with me.

Now what will I have to talk about? Oh, shucks. I’m sure I’ll think of something.


Your Friend Suz, The Proudest MOB

  1. “I now pronounce you, bound together for eternity you two lovely, selfless weirdos”

    These are the words that should be said at the conclusion of a marriage ceremony. Very nice. As are the photos and how you look in them. Move on with grace

    1. You are so right. It wasn’t easy to find a petite MOB dress (I’m a shortie) that didn’t scream Old Lady. I think I ordered about 15 dresses before I found the perfect one.
      Thank you for the compliments!


  2. Oh, this is such a gorgeous wedding. I hadn’t heard of the hand binding and it’s a Celtic tradition – what on earth? My people call themselves Irish. Love the photos. Everyone looks great including your hair. May not have been your everyday look, but it still looks very pretty. And I’m not calling you blond. All the touches are so sweet, like the drinks with grandma in mind, and named for their dogs. Beautiful bride.

    1. Thanks for making me giggle. I have my ‘she’s so pretty days’ but today isn’t one of them. 🙂
      The hand binding thing was new to me as well, but you and your people SHOULD be o the ball with this one.


    1. Thanks so much, Nance. I don’t think there was an official total taken, but I’m going to guess that the Margaritas were consumed more than the Old Fashioned. I’ll not share that with Mattis as he will have an even ‘bigger’ head than he already does.


  3. I have two words… simply stunning.
    The bride, the venue, the flowers and yes, even the MOB’s hair. You lot clean up well!
    Here’s wishing the two selfless weirdos many happy years to come.
    Thanks for sharing their (and your!) special day.

  4. I’ve never heard of hand binding before! What a cool tradition.
    I could look at these pictures all day, so please continue to share them. I feel like that’s your role as a mobster. Oh wait, that’s a different MOB.
    I think your hair is lovely. You glow because you are happy, and it shows in these pictures. 🙂

    I was waiting for you to mention your hair and SUZ, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

    Those photos are incredible, and your DRESS! I love it! I love that rosette on the side. Thanks so much for sharing the photos from that gorgeous day! What a beautiful bride, my goodness. Love it.

  6. Such beautiful photos Suz, thank you for sharing them with us! I’m so sorry to look back and read that Covid hit your family. I hope everyone is all better now. I swear I think it’s going to get every single one of us sooner or later!

  7. It really was a lovely wedding! I feel you on the hair too! I hated my hair at my daughter’s wedding! There is definitely a let-down after the wedding, too! After I drove my daughter and her new husband to the airport to leave for their honeymoon, I drove to the grocery store and cried for 15 minutes before I went inside!

    1. Isn’t it terrible that we have bad hair memories? Maybe when Chris gets married and my Linds get married (not to each other, but how fun?) we will have good hair days!
      I never did shed a tear, but I can see it happening after all the planning and hoopla.

    Omg, gorgeous pictures! Gorgeous bride! Gorgeous flowers! I love your dress, you look beautiful! Your neck is perfectly lovely. I have been to a wedding where the dog had a signature drink, and it was a really good drink!
