Another One Married

No, not one of my children, but the daughter of one of my dear friends.
 
Leah Mobley married Oliver Giorgio, Saturday night, at The Cedarwood Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee. We wouldn't have missed it for the world. Another "Vapor" child getting married. We counted up that we have 8 weddings left! We have all been there for each other as our children got married. It is not only a time of celebrating the happiness of a new married life beginning but a time to reflect on how special it is to have friends that see you through all of life's ups and downs.
So, as the band played the last song...us vapors gathered around Leah in a circle and danced.....and I reflected on how lucky I am to have such good friends!
Leah was a gorgeous bride and the wedding was fabulous. It was a perfect "Southern Living" wedding.
Trent Mobley, Daddy of the bride, performed the marriage ceremony.......but first he had to give his daughter's hand in marriage. So........Jim Herren, Grandfather of the bride, stood in for Trent and asked who gives this bride in marriage......WOW....what a great memory!!!

Isaac Mobley, nephew of the bride and ring bearer did a great job......he just had one little slip up!

Eleanor Mobley, niece of the bride also did a great job.....she took dropping those rose petals very....very seriously!
Beautiful children

Here comes the bride
I wish my camera had caught a wider range of the surroundings. It was beautiful. I kept saying that if a herd of deer ran in front of the bride and groom it wouldn't surprise me!

Daddy and Daughter......both trying to hold it together. It was a super happy day but you know a Daddy and their little girl!

Leah and Oliver

and more....including my "Big John"
after the wedding we were invited to the BARN.....to have appetizers and drinks while the wedding party made pictures


that's my friends

Oliver thanking everyone for coming after being introduced again and inviting everyone to come eat dinner at the mansion

A cute story about ROOK. Leah and Oliver met when they were both at Leah's brother and SIL house, Matthew and Melissa Mobley, playing ROOK. So they used ROOK cards to announce their "save the date".
After the wedding there were ROOK cards pinned on a line........you looked for your name and pulled that ROOK card

The number on the other side of the ROOK card was your table number
Cute!
 
This place was really gorgeous

 
There was a photo booth where you could make just a regular picture or use silly props. I am in several that I have already seen popping up on FB. Here are some sweet friends getting their picture made. You got a copy and a second copy went in a book for the bride and groom

inside.....cutting the cake

Isaac kept trying to tell us exactly which piece he wanted

not to be outdone......Eleanor preceded to see if she could get the piece of cake that she wanted!

Grandmother (Teresa) to the rescue

Mother (Melissa) holding back Eleanor

The cake looked great but.....I can never pass up some pecan pie

That's all the pictures that I made. We were having such a good time that I forgot to make many pictures. We danced the night away and then saw the bride and groom off with a long line of sparklers.

The next day we met some of our friends and had Brunch at The Capitol Grille at The Hermitage Hotel. It was excellent. The highlight thought was very unexpected......a tour of the men's bathroom. As we were leaving and one of our men broke off to visit the bathroom....we noticed a group of women in front of the men's bathroom door and they were talking to a man in a Hermitage Hotel uniform. Of course, we laughed and said....UH Oh, he went in the wrong bathroom.....no, that wasn't it. The guy was telling them the history of the bathroom. something along the lines of.......there used to be underground tunnels that the Mafia could came in through to get to the hotel and they came out in the men's bathroom and that the mirrors....back then....were see through.....so, we just had to see......it might have been the coolest men's bathroom I have ever seen but then.......I haven't seen that many.......wish I had made a picture!

CONGRATULATIONS.....Leah and Oliver
Trent and Teresa
it was a great weekend
