When it Rains it Pours, Perfect Wedding and Sketch

Gene kept asking for our lakes/ponds to fill up.  Well, we had about 5 inches in a couple of hours and the lakes definitely have more water!  We did not have any personal damage from the floods.  Our son's, Larry's, workplace was flooded in San Marcos and he is working in Austin today and probably for a few days.  The rest of us were safely dry at home.

There were many road closings, water damage, wind and tornadoes.  You will see that on TV and the internet.  Many stories on facebook and Twitter.  We are so sorry for the families in Wimberly and San Marcos that have family missing or dead.  Too sad.  It had been since Memorial Day in 1981 since the flooding was so bad.  More to come they say, but we are fine!

Our evening after the storms went by yesterday.

Jennie and Brandon were married on Thursday.  The weather held out for them.  It was very cloudy but cool.  It was informal in a chapel/gazebo and was so beautiful.  A beautiful day and dinner and cake after at Chuy's.  The restaurant did a good job for us as well.  Congratulations to Jennie and Brandon!!

The wedding was small with family and close friends.  Brandon had relatives from out of town and Gene's sisters, Virginia and Mercy came from Albuquerque.  It was a  picture perfect wedding!

The groom and bride.

The in laws and out-laws. We had on boots!

I made the cakes and Jennie made the bouquets.  Beautiful job on the origami flowers.

Larry was the photographer and official photos will follow.  He was going to work on them on Monday but his internet company washed away as I mentioned above.  He went and helped at a shelter instead.

I sketched this morning on the porch for Scavenger Hunt 406  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1379967&page=2  I sketched with a Micron 05 and added watercolor for the challenge.
Number 1, climbing - morning glory flowers on the trailer.
Number 2, made of wood - the glider
Number 3, cushion

Things are back to normal, aren't they??

Jennie and Brandon are a good looking couple. The cakes are pretty amazing too. Looks like you did a good job.

Bag Blog, thank you so much, I hadn't decorated a cake in many, many years. Everyone said it was good. :-). The one with pecans was gluten free for the maid of honor and myself. Brandon is a good addition to our family.

I think small weddings are often the best and the way to go. should be about the couple, not about how much money was spent on the wedding. they both look very happy in that photo :)

I've seen the damage from all the water, just horrible :(

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer, we are not in water danger, but still lots of flooding around the state. It was a happy day.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

glad to read that :) my geography of the states is not the best lol so not sure where every place is

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer, I meant the wedding was a happy day! We are not in danger personally, but there is flooding over a great deal of our huge state. Amazing.

Catching up. I hadn't seen the photo of Brandon and Jennie. Nice.

Jo Castillo said...

Yes, nice. I think Larry has been working on his photos again this weekend, Joanna.
