As I said in the last post, this is about when the boys arrive. Well that's not entirely true. My dad and brother had been there all morning generally making themselves useful.
First they went to Jason's Deli to pick up food for us to eat whilst getting ready. Mmmmm. Then they ran around putting up some flame globe thingies on sticks in the ground (a technical name) to light the entry way to the church.
Anyway, here's what was going on in the basement. Yes. It's a basement with windows. My church is built into the side of a hill so 2 of the walls have windows onto the playground outside.
Ross started getting changed and was very confused when the photographer
started snapping photos of him partially dressed.
The groomsmen relaxed.
Ross yellow socks. The entire wedding was pretty much planned around Ross'
early proclamation that he would be wearing yellow socks.
Ross' Uncle Jeff shares a laugh with Best Man Tom.
My dad gets bow-tied up.
Tom puts the finishing touches on his speech.
Ross relaxed and put some Laurel & Hardy films on to watch.
You can't tell, but they're watching Laurel & Hardy on the
giant projection screen.
Big Bro Matt is not amused.
This makes it look like the boys were very sporty.
It was really just in the room already and the photographer
took a picture of it for some reason. :)
Ross' getting ready accoutrements were far less
extensive than mine.
Deep in thought.
The basement is the church's "Youth Suite", so there were
plenty of things to horse around with- including this
cut out for the youth group's upcoming mission trip to Belize.
I'm so glad they were able to relax and have some fun during the afternoon before the wedding!
