The Pepin Mansion #Indiana #WeddingVenue #ThursdayDoors

One of my little baby cousins got married, and he invited me to the wedding. Well, not exactly.

They had to keep the guest list down on our side of the family, and we have cousins like picnics have aunts. He invited my mother to the wedding, because my cousin reasoned that, if he got the older generation together, they’d share stories and the young folks might learn something. But my mother doesn’t drive, so I got invited as chauffeur.

So I went, took pictures, and video-ed the wedding, and carried it back to Mom.

Naturally, I dodged around the other guests, snapping door photos. This was at the Pepin Mansion in New Albany, Indiana.

The Pepin Mansion

The mansion was built in 1851 by Victor Pepin from Louisville, Kentucky. It was a private residence for several owners, but now it’s a Bed & Breakfast and Event Location. Quite reasonable, too, I thought. AND you can rent their Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II for an additional fee. Visit the Pepin Mansion website for more info and better pictures than I could take.

Here’s a better shot of the door.

I knocked and rang, but the door was firmly locked. Somebody else came up; we conferred and decided to try another door, and found that the wedding was outside. Duh.

No pictures of the wedding, because I didn’t get releases from anybody, and you prolly don’t know those people, anyway, but I sure did!

I wandered around inside, snapping the pictures in the gallery. I had declined the invitation to the reception, because Mom had thought she might feel like going, and she can’t eat (she’ll be on a g-tube for ever and always). It looked good, though.

Great wedding! Click on any photo to start the slide show.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
