Rehearsal Dinner

After a hectic day of preparing, we finally reach the first party.  The rehearsal dinner!  Well, first the rehearsal.  Both Quynh and Missy didn't make it in time because of their absolutely valid reasons, so my Aunt Polly pretended to be Quynh.  We were lectured that if we had anything to drink before the ceremony, the priest would refuse to marry us ("If you want to test me, I'll give you the phone number of the last groom I refused to marry"), and made it through everything pretty quickly.  Now to the party.

Aside from the pouring rain, and the fact that I ordered ENTIRELY too much food, it was fantastic.  And, once again, my mother made the comment that "You know the bride's relaxed when she says to you 'Everything's just perfect' as it's pouring down rain."  What did I care?  We had food, friends, beer brewed by the best man (which was AMAZING), and one of the best parties I've been to in awhile.  Not to mention a very apropos slide-show that was assembled by my dad.  The songs he chose?  You and Me by Dave Matthews, Fins by Buffett, and Feeling Good by Buble.  PERFECT.

Now what you want.  Pictures.  Enjoy.
