What I saw when I got home was Venti and all the groomsmen at our house! I didn't think I would see him until we got to the church!! They decided that they were all going to get dressed there. I didn't know they were coming, which was fine but then they all started saying they were hungry! I didn't want to be responsible for any groomsmen passing out in church so I hopped on the phone and called for 6 pizza's to be delivered! An hour later I had 5 empty boxes and lots of full bellies! I was worried that I didn't order enough but thankfully I did!
Everyone was dressed and ready to head to the church! A couple of you asked what kind of church it is....it was a Catholic Church. We got there at about 1:00pm. The ceremony was to start at 2:00pm. I pinned all the guys flowers on and then went in to see Mocha...she was just starting to get dressed. My Mom and Dad came in to get their flowers pinned on and my Dad got teary eyed when he saw Mocha!
1:55pm and the priest comes and tells us that its time to go! I lined up first and everyone got in place. I walked to the doorway of the church where Grande, Tall and Short were waiting for me. Grande and Tall walked me down while Short walked behind me with Joe. They all gave me a kiss and I sat down in the pew. Everyone was down the isle and the music changed. We all stood up and turned to watch Mocha come down the isle. I looked over at Venti looking down at Mocha and I saw my son desperately trying to hold back tears....his mouth turned down and his eyes got all watery....that did it...I started to cry, Joe started to cry, Mocha's sisters started to cry, Mocha's Mom and Grandma started to cry, my Mom started cry....everyone I looked at was misty eyed.....Mocha and her Dad reached Venti....Mocha saw Venti with tears in his eyes and she started to cry. Then Mocha's Dad started to cry! Oh my! I heard Mocha's Dad say to Venti that he just wanted him to take care of his baby....Venti said that he would.
The ceremony was beautiful....it all went so quickly!
No one fainted....just lots of tears!
After all the pictures, the wedding party and the parents boarded a 32 seated party bus!! It was awesome! We all had some champagne and headed to an orchard to take some outdoor photos. 2 hours later we arrived at the hall!! Everyone was about 3 sheets to the wind by then! We were all individually introduced and then walked to our seats. Dinner was rolls, salad, Chicken Piccata and Beef, green beans and red potatoes. It was really good but I had a hard time eating with all the excitement!
Grande speech was amazing! People all night long were telling him how good it was! Tall also said a speech and he did really well. I knew then from the look on Venti's face that he didn't regret his decision to have his brothers as his best men!
The rest of the night......
