Another Wedding

andres_s_p_b's brother is now safely married off. We are running short of brothers, here.

It was a lovely wedding -- great location, good food, cute little self-written bit of vows. The officiant had a nice voice and was good at directing things (they stuck a little handfasting bit in the middle, so there was some moving around). In the middle of the ceremony the wind kicked up and tried to steal the veil, which was hilarious. I believe the official photographer got some pictures of it, and I hope those get shared.

One of the bride's relatives looks remarkably like my maternal grandfather.

I wound up in a much more suit-like suit than I had been planning. The trouble with figuring out exactly what I want and then shopping for it is that, of course, stores don't carry exactly what I want. But I'm fairly happy with the suit, except for the annoying fakeness of the jacket pockets. Really, if I didn't want the line spoiled, I could just not put things in actual pockets. I'd like to have the option.

Having the pants altered to fit me better worked really well and was quick and cost only $26. I'm going to do it all the time now that I have learned this.

I did a good job managing my reaction to noise. (The location helped here -- there was a lot of nicely accessible far-away-from-speakers-and-people outdoor space to go hide and watch bats in.) It took a little while to figure out how to properly seat my new earplugs, but they worked well once I got them all the way in. I basically checked out around 9:30 or 10:00 and read one of the coffee-table books with my earplugs in for the rest of the night, but I had a reasonably good time before that and I didn't cry at all. (andres_s_p_b came over a couple of times to check on me and bring me tea after I had finished, which was nice of him.)
