Pink Nashville Saturday, Part 2

Welcome to the continuation of my pink adventure!

OK, as you will see, not everything posted will be pink, but you will find pink here that is for sure :)

During the ceremony in the garden, the pastor passes the ribbon-tied rings amongst the attendees. Everyone is to say a little prayer or blessing upon them.....
So, after the exchanging of rings and the saying of vows, we all head off to the reception site in downtown Nashville. It was really crowded in that area due to a Rascal Flats concert going on. We then escape the crowds neat the entrance and go up an elevator to the 4th floor of a building to the Aerial.

Everything was all set up and ready for a wonderful evening of celebration. After looking about and (filling up my buffet plate), I noticed a nice pink rose in a very unique vase on one of the tables.....
On the wall, a lit up poem also caught my attention.....so sweet!
After dinner, it was time to cut the cake....or I should say to take a cupcake. I picked up a very pretty red velvet cake one with cream cheese icing on top...so yummy!

As the night was coming down to a close, my cousin and her new hubby came by every table to greet everyone. While Michael was at another table, I was able to chat with my cousin for a bit....
Tim and I then departed with some of the family to head back to our hotel.

You would think the wedding festivities stop here, but they continue on for part of another day....on to the family softball game at Greer Stadium (the home of the Nashville Sounds)! My cousin worked there, once upon a time. It was a time of no formal score taking or rules...just pure family fun :)

Tim, my dad and myself head off to the game that Saturday afternoon. We did not play since they had so many people that formed up the two teams, but it was really fun being the spectators. While talking with my family, my 2nd cousin, Ryann was sitting right next to me and was running about and playing along with her little sister, Brayden.

She let me guard over her pretty pink sweater.....
Yup, no need to adjust your monitors...I took the picture sideways...how I was sitting in the stands.

After leaving the ballgame, it was off to visit with some friends of ours that live in the area.

On Sunday, it was a long trip back but it was wonderful to be safely home.

After reading my pink post, please stop How Sweet the Sound (look under the November 8th link)by some other Pink Saturday bloggers for more pink fun!
thanks for stopping by :)
