Rehearsal & Rehearsal Dinner

Posted by barb on Sep 18, 2004 in Pictures, Wedding |

The rehearsal and rehearsal dinner were this evening. We arrived at the planetarium a bit before the wedding coordinators, but the girls and I started setting up right away.

The rehearsal went fairly quickly, since we had scripted the lighting with Jonathan on Tuesday. The photographer took a few test shots, and let everyone know that we should stop by the star projector for a second on our way down the aisle — that way he would have a better chance at a good picture. They also tested the flash a couple times, which was blinding, but necessary.

After the rehearsal, Jonathan offered to do a mini-star show for us, which we happily accepted. It’s obvious that he enjoys his job, and we had a fun time as he took us through the night sky.

Next we herded everyone to Anita’s New Mexican Restaurant in Vienna, one of Andrew and my favorite restaurants. This was a bit of a task, since not everyone rented cars and one of the rental cars we were expecting to have wasn’t present (see yesterday’s entry for more on that), but we triumphed.

Dinner was fun — I got to hold my new neice, Sofia, for the first time, and got to catch up with my other neice and nephew, Kira and Brock. Brock wanted to sit across from me, which was great, since I don’t get to see or talk with him much. Our families seemed to get along quite well again, though there was some segregation of the families (not on purpose).

Afterwards, Sweetie and Suzanne took me home — they’re staying with me tonight.
