her colors were mauve and white.

Like I said in the previous post, I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of a fellow teacher, Alberta, from my school this past weekend.  It was my first Catholic wedding, so it differed a little from weddings I've been to in the past, but not much.  The main differences were things like the vibrant colors on all of the guests, the hymns sung in Fante, and the lack of a fixed guest list.  As someone who is beginning to plan her own wedding, that last one is a little more than a little  terrifying.  But here, if you know about it, you are welcome.  So the food that was being prepared was supposed to be enough for at least 400 people.  Yeah.  Like I said, terrifying.  But it was beautiful.
