When guests arrived at Sookie's girlhood home -- now her brother's house, though she'd descended upon it over the last week in a fit of Pinterest-driven decorating -- they would find all the makings for a simple country wedding. The big tree out back, where she and Jason had climbed as children, and under which Bobby had built her a snowman several Christmases ago, was laced with fairy lights, a lattice archway underneath. There were lanterns lighted throughout the acre of land on which the house sat, glowing softly in the dimming light.
It was a little cool, for Louisiana in August -- the humidity still clung, though a bayou breeze would occasionally bring relief. And if that didn't, there was already an open bar being stocked next to the house, for after the ceremony. (Sookie was insistent on that point. They weren't that unconventional, even if they were getting married in Bon Temps after all -- the original plan had been to have the ceremony up north and several weeks ago, but a mission had gotten in the way, and there was no use crying over lost security deposits now.)
Welcome to the Stackhouse-Drake wedding.
Sookie (Stackhouse) Drake
