well, to sum it up, it was such a stress free day.  which made a beautiful wedding day, if you ask me.  we met in the garden and had a short ceremony while the butterflies and bees industriously worked the flowers in the background.  afterwards we went to brunch, just the 8 of us from the ceremony.  here is our lovely bride now….

her father took a snap of her and the groom with his mobile phone, so she is saving that picture for him so it pops up when she calls.

next we changed and hopped in a minivan for the trek to the vineyards. we went to several, but…one had sheep!!!

a rain storm had popped up, so it was quite muddy.  this sheep seemed to really like being photographed…

i couldn’t stay out there photographing livestock all day….my companions were already ahead of me in the wine sampling.

it was a really good activity for the small group.  better than garter tosses and bouquet tosses and doing the electric slide. do they still do that at weddings?

we rolled on from one vineyard to the next. the last vineyard had a couple dogs.  this one was so aloof, but i got to him finally and he let me cuddle him.

meanwhile, i had gotten behind on the sampling again!

just kidding, i wasn’t really behind. in fact, at this point i had jumped ahead.

we then went to a delicious restaurant where we laughed and pigged out and ate the super yummy cake you saw in today’s earlier post.

so, it was a good day.  i wish them years of fun and happiness and success.

in case you wondered….the bride and groom are mindy‘s parents…

oh, and i’m sure you’re all wondering which wines i preferred… well, it was the reds, the dry ones.  so dry that if you look hard enough…there’s a little purple tumble weed swishing around in the bottom of the glass.  the sweety wines are not preferred here at cody bear’s friends.   in fact, one or two of the ones we tasted yesterday reminded me of some of the libby’s juiceboxes my friends’ kids drink. and the best quote of the day (unless you’re the vintner) was a.h. whispering “this is horrible…it tastes like silly putty.”  i, too, hate the silly putty wines.

I love the sheep! (But not THAT way.) Looks like a great way to wind up the day.

My brother had a rescue dog that had been used on a sheep farm. It had been trained not to respond to humans but to stay out in the field, by having rocks thrown at it. Needless to say, it was still somewhat aloof even under my brother’s care.

I like how everything immediately beyond the wine glass is blurry.

What vintage was the diet Dr. Pepper? Looks rather recent…

I like that dog you photographed. Got a dignified reserve.
