May 14a, 2010 - Evan and Kyle's wedding day
The day starts off like all of the others - some combination of Jill/Gaby/me feeding Ella in the villa kitchen.
Since it is Jill and Gaby today, I take the time to walk around the villa.
I pass the peculiar wine press.
The fairly infrequently-used living room.
The four of us aren't in the wedding, but Gaby goes to do Kyle's hair, so Jill, Ella, and I head west to the coast, into Viana de Castelo.
Not a particularly impressive lighthouse.
Neat building, though.
Ugly coastline, though this is a fairly industrial stretch of beach.
The rocks are cool.
Jill and Ella enjoy the beach air.
I guess this is the remnants of some resort.
After a few wrong turns, we find the lighthouse
and an old hilltop windmill.
Driving back through rural Portugal...
That's our turn (well, straight ahead).
It is a very nice villa. Even the driveway has decor.
Fast-forward. We're at the wedding site, now.
What a house!
The grounds are beautiful.
Inside, everyone hangs out by the fire.
Ella enjoys some Beth-time.
Outside, the Paris boys are getting anxious.
The wedding moves from the gardens to the sprawling front steps.
Everyone takes their places.
