Congratulations to my cousin, Allison, and Mike who became Mr. and Mrs. Blankenship on November 5th! Allison chose a beautiful cranberry red for her wedding color. Her sister Laura was the matron of honor, and our cousin, Chris, was a junior bridesmaid. Stephen and I were honored to be a part of Allison’s wedding day by singing Here is Love during the lighting of the unity candle.
Ruth Anna drove up from Virginia Beach, and Pastor and Mrs. Bridner came all the way from SC to celebrate Allison’s big day. Pastor Bridner is Allison’s former pastor and is a dear friend of the entire family. He also married Stephen and me five years ago.
I was happy to be with so many family members and friends all at once. We introduced Silas to my mom’s siblings and their families, my mom’s cousins, Mom-Mom Betty, her two daughters, and our friends from when I lived in Delaware as a child.
During the wait between the ceremony and the entrance of the bride and groom at the reception, Silas pigged out on hors d’oeuvres for an hour and a half! It was truly an Eastern Shore event with crab dip at the reception. Yum!
