We picked out five little stuffed snakes to tie into a bouquet, knowing full well the bride is a bit squeamish of all things that slither. Took those itty-bitty little things up to the counter to have the nice man say, "$38.50." Say what? Is that with my 10% discount for being a zoo member?
Take two, the store also sells really large stuffed snakes for $10 each. Two of those tied together with CC's cute saying, "Cause you are tying the knot!" and we were good to go. They were a hit! Even after the real bouquet showed up with J, the snakes were the best prop of the rehearsal and wedding. Everything happens for a reason.
The wedding party:
Dinner at Padaro's Grill in Summerland:
I was kicking a hippie/bohemian look.
And, we are still not quite sure what look J was kicking. Okay, I admit his hat was only turned like that so that he could take pictures. Of course, I had the camera here...why is the hat still rocking it sideways?
