Wedding Story

On September 6, 2003, Sean and I made it official.

It was a small wedding in his parents’ backyard in Kingston. The site was spectacular and it was a perfect sunny September day:

We said our vows (which we wrote) between the two magnificent willow trees. The groom was handsome in his uniform:

My mother-in-law’s talented book club provided the gorgeous flowers:

I can’t document an event without a picture of the bar:

We swayed to Etta James’ At Last for the first dance and later, we shimmied to You Can Leave Your Hat On:

The night was straight out of a fairy tale. The full moon came out and shone a spectacular display on the water--an auspicious beginning to a new life:

Happy Anniversary, my love. May there be many more.

Happy Anniversary. It looks like such a beautiful outdoor wedding. And I love the picture of the moon!

Thanks for coming by my place and leaving the Oscar Wilde quote. He is always good for a chuckle. I need to add him to my quote collection.

I look forward to coming back and reading more.

Okay, I'm back. What a beautiful wedding, that uniform, that dress, those flowers, that bar ;) and that moonlight shot. Sigh. Thank you for sharing your special day with me. Happy HAPPY anniversary.

PS - I just read your last couple of posts and I'm actually teared up and crying over how beautiful they are. Tell your man that his ring post made me giggle.

Oh your dress is aweseome! Is that a layer of chiffon on the dress?

Krista - yes, it's chiffon. I bought the dress in Chinatown. It was the second one I tried on. The best part? Only $400.
