No Ordinary Day

We've been told that the day we got married in July 2000 was the hottest day on record for that year. I have never actually checked to see if that statistic is true but I would certainly not be surprised. It was hot! Very hot!! The church we chose was Jennings Chapel--it's a little country church on a two lane road just outside Tuscaloosa. It was filled to capacity and it seemed like the air was broken, although it was not. Ray and I decided to see each other before the ceremony and take all our pictures so we could calm our nerves and spend our time at the reception with our family and friends. Our ceremony was short and sweet, maybe about fifteen minutes which I'm sure our guests appreciated. The reception was at the Battle Friedman Home in the historic district of downtown Tuscaloosa. We were ready to dance the entire evening away until we couldn't dance anymore. Have I mentioned it was hot? And that the dancing was to be under a tent outside? Well, needless to say we didn't dance all night. We enjoyed our first dance, a dance with our parents and our wedding party and that was it for the dancing. Although it was hot, it was the most perfectly hot day of my life! Pin It
