a special rehearsal dinner & gulf shrimp | married!
My parents went all out for Justin & Susannah’s rehearsal dinner! They prepared a shrimp and fried crab leg dinner for 50 people… and these weren’t any ordinary shrimp or crabs. They were specially shipped straight from the Gulf Coast! Randy and I tried to document the events leading up to the wedding as best we could, but we were enlisted as members of the prep crew :)
Cooking over 50 lbs of shrimp in 16 different batches was an endurance. My parents were up until 3 am!
If I ever question where I get my goofy nature, Dad never fails to remind me :)
I can’t tell if Blossom was enticed or scared of the shrimp….
Husband Randy… working while I play :)
Cousin Abby, me and cousin Regan. I will never again underestimate the talent of a florist!
My mom and her sister, Nancy, took on the bulk of the food prep. They make a great team! (That’s gumbo, in case you were wondering).
Abby, me, Regan. Guests began to arrive and food prep was falling behind!
The decor was definitely a family group effort.
A slightly concerned look on the groom’s face. Perhaps he was counting chairs?
A plethora of the bride’s favorite flavor of frozen yogurt (Animal Cracker). Yum!
More documentations to come :)
