A Wedding

About a week and a half ago I got married. Everyone told me that the day would fly by and it would be over before I knew it. That all of the months of planning would feel almost wasted given the short day. I guess our day was a little different. Don't get me wrong, the day didn't go slowly, but I was able to enjoy the day and soak it all in. I won't walk through all of the specifics, but I'll provide a few highlights.

-We got lucky with the weather. It was sunny and relatively warm for a day in the middle of February.

-When Bob and I went to get sandwiches for the trolley ride from the church to the reception we were wearing our tuxes. The guy behind the counter who gave us the sandwiches asked, "Are you guys having a bachelor party?"

-My dad made it. They brought him and his medical equipment up in an RV and parked it in front of the church. He was able to attend the ceremony and reception and deliver a wonderful speech. He even danced with my mom for part of a song. It meant a lot to have him there.

-The church was packed and the ceremony was beautiful. I was not nervous at all.

-Speaking of beautiful, Dee looked fabulous. Absolutely beautiful.

-Our wedding was in the city and the reception was in the 'burbs. We had a trolley to take the wedding party from one place to the other. The traffic was terrible and we ran out of beer on the trolley. We stopped at a 7-11 and Dee and I took our first pees as man and wife.

-The reception hall had a nice little room for the bridal party that was separate from the reception. It was really nice but the room was hot as hell. I was very grumpy by the time we were introduced.

-Dee and I took some dance lessons for our first dance. We were great when we practiced but still screwed up a couple of times at the reception.

-All of the speeches were perfect for the people that gave them. Everyone was very impressed. Not a dry eye in the house during my dad's speech (which I will publish on this blog later).

-One of the speeches involved dancing.

-The food was good even if they did screw up a few things.

-Lots of craziness on the dance floor. I can't wait to see the wedding video. Our friends are awesome and hilarious and great dancers.

-I got to do the Beat It dance.

-There were sliders at the end of the night. They were delicious. They were also mashed all over the dance floor.

-I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. It was fun, touching and beautiful. We are very lucky to have such loving family and friends.
