We were settled into Rochelle's house when Pete and Rena arrived from Connecticut - that's Pete with the coffee. Margi, Elise and CJ came shortly after. This picture is at breakfast at the Beach Break the next morning - I handed Rena my camera. It was like a grown up slumber party, if that makes any sense.
Levyland in Carlsbad for their wedding. We didn't realize it but it's just a mile south of Rochelle's house in Oceanside, if that tells you anything about how close things are. One of the reasons the kids chose it is because they could be married on the beach.
We walked down for rehearsal a tad late on Friday. The officiate was stuck in traffic and the taco truck that we had arranged for the rehearsal dinner was also stuck on the freeway, awaiting AAA. We mostly needed to get the order of procession - the wedding planners had their hands full. Noah and Issac are charged with bringing Walter, the symbolic ring bearer to the altar.
Rasta Taco arrived, courtesy of AAA, about two hours late. They have an excellent reputation but the chef still had to set up and cook. Daniel gets my two thumbs up - talk about grace under fire. He delivered great good food, while disputing the AAA guys dilemma. His company said he had to impound and tow the van, but Daniel's boss got it ironed out, had the van towed for service and came to pick him up. All that is behind the scenes, all the while that Daniel is delivering service with a flashy smile. It's the Hollywood spillover in LA, me thinks.
