And, what do you know, Reader Dear--there were multiple Wedding Cakes, baked by a friend of the bride!
there was a Wedding After-Party.**
**Drinks and karaoke.
"It'll be really loud," the bride told me.
"I think your dad and I will go hang out with the ring bearers, back at the rental house." I said.***
***That's just what we did, Reader Dear. We carted along some left-over cake and left-over wine (collards all eaten up!) and we watched over the sleeping actors. When next we saw the brand-new husband and brand-new wife, they were well on their way to Happily-Ever-After!
