A Night Of Celebration With A Wonderful View............

Saturday was a big night for Mr.Sexy Calves and myself....We had a hot date in downtown Atlanta..I picked up his suit from the cleaners, knocked the dust off up my black high heels and bought a new pair of Spanx for myself (Spanx is important when trying to look 50lbs thinner when your not)...We were going to a wedding...

Not just your average Southern Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Presbyterian or even a Pentecostal run of the mill celebration...Nope, not even close....This one was my first....Your thinking same sex wedding aren't you.....Well your wrong!.....


This was a Southern Baptist/ Jewish wedding...And what a celebration it was....The ceremony started out as the sun was setting at beautiful Piedmont Park....The officiant was actually the one who introduced them and one of the brides best friends....He added humor and heartfelt tears to the ceremony and tried to interpret the Jewish customs that were intertwined throughout....There was a lot of Baptist in attendance....We needed the interpretation...


I know what 2-Corinthians says about being unequally yoked, but they have been together for 5 years and the love between them is so wonderful and obvious.....And I'm sure when this wedding was being planned both sets of parents was scratching their heads..

The bride and groom are huge sports fans so after the ceremony we headed over to Turner Field (Home of the Braves for those of you who don't know baseball) to the 755 club...All I can so was the views of Atlanta at night and Turner Field were awesome....

Once the wedding party arrived, the party started.....We feasted on filet mignon and chicken cordon bleu, caught up with old friends and made several new one....The band was incredible...If you could clone Frank Sinatra, Otis Redding and Van Morrison this is who you would come up with...We left the celebration before our arthritis took over and my Spanx gave out...I have decided that I'm going to become an official wedding crasher, if nothing else for the people watching....I promise you the crowd at this one didn't disappoint..

Glad you and the hubby had a good time and got to hear some good music and have some fun people watching.

The best part was getting to dress up and be out together. The wedding sounded interesting too.

Sounds like you had a blast! Atlanta is beautiful at night but my only time I spent in Atlanta was3 years ago when my son was in a near fatal car wreck...so, my view was from Grady Memorial Hospital for a week. lol Still, it was beautiful.
