HOORAY…we are finally married. Saturday was the big day and everything went well.
The weather was clear but very cold in the evening. Most people dressed appropriately so that wasn’t too big a deal.
I made more than enough food and everyone really liked the spread, including my friend’s father who is a professional caterer. The chocolate fountain didn’t work so well in the cold (ie. clumping up and shaking like it was going to explode…actually that was pretty funny) but no one seemed to notice.
The ceremony was less than four minutes total. Guests later thanked us for that.
We invited 115 people and 78 showed up so it was a good turnout. More people came in costume than I had anticipated.
The only thing that didn’t go the way I wanted it to was the processional music. I made a cd of mp3’s to be played but the first 7 songs didn’t copy so I walked in to Glen Miller’s Moonlight Serenade instead of Eric Clapton’s version of Classical Gas. I had really wanted that song but by the time I realized it wasn’t there, it was too late to do anything. The rest of the music went well however.Recessional music was Glen Miller’s In The Mood and it was on from there.
We ended up married so that in itself made the day succesful. I only cried once and that was when I danced with my dad and we were both bawling so that was okay.
Here are a few pictures.
That link takes you to the homepage but there is a link to click and see more of our wedding pictures.
I will post better pictures later.
No pictures but let me describe it for you: We got to the room and opened presents while waiting for the jacuzzi tub to fill. Once filled, we set the timer and climbed in to relax. Got out after 15 minutes and cozied up in the big king size bed. Then…here comes the exciting part…we fell asleep.
