A Memorable Party

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wesley) Carter said he didn’t realize it at the time but being married in the temple followed by the lovely reception was the highlight of his life. Grandma (Mary) Carter’s family had spent days in preparation for the party. Invitations were sent to every family in Lake Shore and to all of Wes’s and Mary’s friends and relatives.

Grandpa (Laning) Hall hired a live orchestra and everyone enjoyed dancing throughout the evening. There was a program. Wes said each person on the program made dumb remarks about the bride and groom—I can just hear the laughter. The refreshments served were chicken sandwiches (from chickens the Hall women raised, killed, plucked, cooked and prepared into sandwich spread), potato chips, pickles, wedding cake, and punch. Sounds good to me!

Sounds like the perfect wedding reception to me. They get too elaborate now!

I love it! Sounds like something Grandma would serve at a backyard picnic (except the wedding cake of course!).
