What’s wrong with this picture?

They say a picture paints a thousand words but sometimes it hides them instead.

Take this photo of Husband and I, at a wedding we attended in Charleston, South Carolina, this time last year …

Don’t we look happy? The perfect couple.

Except we weren’t. The whole trip had a funny, stilted cloud over it that I just couldn’t put my finger on.

I know why now.

But the wedding itself was awesome. Nothing stilted about a Southern wedding. I loved every minute of it. I’m so glad we went.

I cried as the groom said his vows under a grand, old tree beside the banks of the Stono River. The Southern grub served for dinner was delicious. The Bourbon lemonade was lethal. The dancing was a hoot. It was brilliant catching up with our old friends. The bride was gorgeous.

I will leave you with some more snaps of the day, just in case you missed them the first time around …

They set up a typewriter for people to type messages to the happy couple. Cute!

It’s not a Southern wedding without tea – with a shot of bourbon? – in glass jars

Appetizers included pimento cheese dip with pork scratchings, okra and spicy sausage on bikkies and smoked chicken on scones.
