Teri and Patrick part two-the reception

Simon and I were the first guests to the reception. We are never early for anything. Our excuse was we were kidless for the weekend. THE WHOLE WEEKEND!!! It was so perfect outside that we grabbed our drinks and sat outside.
The bridal party showed up and the reception began. As we began our dinner the craziest thing happened. We had some really heavy sun showers. As soon as Simon gets the pictures sorted out, I will post those. Not a cloud in the sky but rained cats and dogs. A sign??? There was thunder and everything.
After dinner were the speeches and I think the tears were already shed in the ceremony earlier because there was a whole lot of laughter. However it was time for the bride and groom to say their stuff. Again Patrick had the room in tears with his tribute to Teri's late parents and how Teri has been through so much. Then the big news. They had announced that Teri was 14 weeks pregnant. I thought the room was going to come off the hall. Everyone was so excited for them. I knew a bit before hand and when Teri had told me that they were going to announce it at the wedding I was a little bit worried about how it would be recieved because they are young and Um hello, they just got married. It was awesome!!!
