Well after a week in Chicago waiting for the big day it’s finally arrived.
Michele is better after a day in bed resting. Not sure what caused her to be unwell, maybe it was a bout of being overtired.
Off to Julie and Joe’s for the big day, I dropped Michele off and had to take the car back and walk to the house as the hotel wouldn’t take me back!!
I helped Joe set the wedding venue up with his decorated arch and last out the place settings for Julie while the girls got ready.
Finally Joe and the boys had off to Clara’s where the wedding was being held, Aunty Jilla, Pete, Shirley and Michele went too leaving me with Julie, Sharon, Elle and Joe’s daughter Regan to travel up in store in my first ever ride in a stretch limo.
It was an honour to walk my cousin down the isle for her big wedding day one I’ll remember for the rest of my days. This was only beaten by walking my own daughter Sam down the isle for her wedding day.
The whole day was an experience, the food fantastic and the company even better.
American weddings don’t last long into the night like the ones in the UK but that helped us as we had an afternoon flight the following day back to home.
We called briefly at Julie and Joe’s to do the morning suit off, including suspenders (braces in the UK if you are thinking I’m on the turn!) The big news of the day was the united match had been cancelled as a suspicious package had be found in the main stand. I briefly spoke to Sam and Matt so we’re at the game and they were safe.
Now off to the airport to do the car off and homeward bound after a fantastic week.
Congratulation Julie and Joe’s and thanks for letting us celebrate with you xx
