Day 5 started off like days 2 and 3 and 4–more washing and cleaning vehicles and fences, but by the end of the day the wedding couple made their arrival. We had the first of several wedding-week feasts with a grillout on the patio.

After dark, Brandon the Kansan wanted to catch a crawfish, so he and Ann took a flashlight and a string with a piece of bacon down the street to an empty lot covered with crawfish holes and, sure enough, dragged in little white crawfish.

A real highlight of the day was Linzay’s delivery of Sarah’s wedding veil for adorning the front door to honor the wedding party’s arrival and to signify the happy occasion going on in this household this weekend. That was a pretty classy idea our wedding consultant found for us–Sarah’s post on Facebook fetched rave reviews. Look closely at the photo and see the bride and groom’s reflection in the glass of the door: Things are getting romantic over here.
