Stackhouse Residence - Bon Temps, Louisiana [Saturday evening, Fandom time]
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.

Arrive! [8/3]

Show off anything fancy you might be wearing, complain about the fact that once again you are somehow in Sookie's hometown in THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER, WHAT THE HELL, look for Bill in the bushes, etc.

Re: Arrive! [8/3]

Of course Kate was here. And looking excited about it, too. (And pretty, in her dress, but that was less important in the grand scheme of things.)

And okay, maybe she was a little weirded out to be at her high school roomie's wedding already. But not a lot. Since she got teased about being practically married to Bod all the time anyway.

Pre-ceremony [8/3]

For any jitters anyone might have, or conversations between bridesmaids and groomspeople and such getting ready!

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

Sookie adjusted her hair a final time in the mirror in her bedroom, wondering if it wasn't a bit too much with her dress.

"Are we sure I don't look too...fairy princess?"

Yes, she heard it, too.

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

Kennedy showed no signs of having gotten stuck in the worst demon dimension ever for about six hours the other day, and despite that she was in reasonably good spirits. (But she was so kicking that girl's ass if she ran into her, next trip to Fandom, because what the hell. Dimension. Literally.)

Whatever, she was rocking the dress she was actually wearing for this, and scrutinizing herself in the mirror. Had to look perfect for the occasion, after all.

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

Holy shit. This was actually, legitimately happening. Which, okay, Bobby had more or less come to terms with a month ago, but then it hadn't, you know. Happened. But now it was. And he couldn't stop grinning.

"Holy crap." He said, for roughly the twelfth time. "I'm getting married."

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

It wasn't that Warren was a bit of a perfectionist when it came to how he looked, really. It was just that he'd been preening in front of a mirror for about an hour, systematically straightening out his feathers, and then his hair, before going back to getting his wings in order again. And then there was the mandatory time spent getting the featherdust out of his suit, because he could have thought that through better, and...

He'd been a little too busy focusing on war lately to be able to spend much time doing this. Having the time and means to actually pay attention to how he looked was something of a luxury these days, and for the sake of Bobby and Sookie's wedding, he was going to take full advantage of it.

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

Emma's hair was done, she had Badgley Mischka heels in sliver, and her dress really suited her eyes. "Fluffing-check!" she called out cheerfully, adjusting the top. "And can someone tell me if the bow is straight?"

Re: Pre-ceremony [8/3]

Karla tugged at her hem once again. "Has anyone seen my shoes?" she called. "I know I left them right over here! Argh!"

Stupid shoes.

Ceremony! [8/3]

The actual event whoo!

Processional - Kennedy and Emma!

I want this to be a sitcom. Or a reality show. KENNEDY AND EMMA: WACKY WEDDING PARTY DUO.

Stop tugging on your dress, Karla.

Where you can get drunk and be social! There is an open bar which is totally moddable, and an enormous variety of equally moddable hors d'oeuvres.

Reception - Cake!

Rather than a big cake, Sookie and Bobby had elected to go with a tiered display of both chocolate and vanilla cupcakes.

Don't worry, though. There's still enough to smash in people's faces.

Not that you have to bring a gift. But, you know, if you did.

(Throwing cash at the happy couple is also acceptable.)

Re: Reception! [8/3]

Bobby was seated next to Sookie, of course, and every once and a while he'd put his hands together and twist his wedding ring with the fingers of his other hand, or reach over and run his fingers over the matching band on Sookie's hand.

OOC [8/3]

And I'm going to be out for most of Saturday, which is why this is going up the night before! If you think you got an invite, you totally did. (Wedding crashers are also likely to be treated with a light hand, for that matter.) If you need anything, ping me down here or shoot me an email at justthreeapples(at)gmail(dot)com!

Re: OOC [8/3]

This seems like an appropriate place to put a gif of Stephen Moyer giving TB a little shoutout in the middle of "Razzle Dazzle" while playing Billy Flynn in Chicago last week.
