Saturday, March 9, 2013, saw the wedding of two of my best friends, Ally and Jason Carter, in a small ceremony at the Elvis Presley Chapel in Tupelo, MS. The reception (and wedding party later that evening) was a "star-studded" event, with long-time friends (and former band mates) jamming into the early hours of Sunday morning. The Immortal SuperFoosh and bassist "Evil" Jimmy Karow came out, as did Brad Bailey (bass) and Riggen Bullard (drums) of the Healers, Vinnie C., and Brian, Ray, and James of the Down South Band, and a good time was had by all.
Saturday marked the first time since October 2010 that all the members of The Healers have been on stage together, and Jimmy's presence marked a(n almost) reunion of the original KWP lineup (Skip Oliver was absent due to surgery two days previous).
Pictured below are the happy couple during their first dance as husband and wife (photo courtesy Gigi Costlow).
We all want to send Jason and Ally much love as they enjoy their honeymoon and wish them safe travels to and from their destination. When you see them out in the next few weeks, be sure to congratulate them. You'll recognize them by the size of the smile on each of their faces.
Thank you, also, to everyone who pitched in and helped make the Wedding Party a success. You know who you all are, and we couldn't have done it without you.
