East Coast Style

Shady Grady is like a brother to me.  His parents are frequently referred to as my Atlanta parents, I always stay with them when I have to hit up the dirrty ATL.  And we always have lots of fun.  Back in July, Gray got married in Pasedena CA since he lives in Los Angeles now.  So on Dec 29 he was in town for the holidays and held the east coast reception.  I'll call it the Wedding of Funny Faces.

So after Christmas (Raleigh to Greenville to Prosperity back to Raleigh in 24 hours) I got two days in the office before heading back to Greenville friday night.  Saturday I got a haircut, got to hang out a while with a few friends, then loaded up the car with my parents and headed down to Atlanta.  We got ready for the party quickly and got over there.

Me with Gray and Susie, the happy newlyweds

Morgan and his girlfriend Martha came down too!
The wedding was absolutly lovely.  There was a fantastic band, open bar, buffet, and 250 guests.  There was singing and dancing, but not by me.  I got to see plenty of people that I didn't expect to see, including family young and old.
Me and Katie
This included Katie, a girl whom I had not seen maybe since we were 12 years old.  I can't believe she actually recognized me.  And for the wedding of funny faces, I couldn't stop talking long enough for mom to take the picture.

Mom and I, of course she can't take a bad picture
Me, Susie, Morgan, Martha

Even the bride can get caught at the Wedding of Funny Faces!
This time Gray looks kind of scared for his life.  Like he's suddenly caught in a trap of Flynn men.

Obviously, Dad believes what that guy is saying, but I'm about ready to call bullshit.  This may be my favorite Funny Face pic of the bunch.

Me with my Atlanta Momma
Susie is an incredible addition to the family and everyone that meets her falls in love with her.  It must be a blessing and a curse.  I couldn't be happier for these guys, and was really glad that I got to spend some time with them while they were on the east coast.  Much love and many happy years to you both!
