Friday the 14th. I worked a 1/2 day and then rushed home to get changed for the wedding. Juggling bouquet and boutonnieres, I walked into a house filled with Hai's photographer's apparatus,( rather humbling to this blogger with her point and shoot) a bride in her black Chucks and a general air of happiness and hysteria
One hour later we piled into the car, GG driving , Tini applying makeup and myself stuffed in the back with The Hai and his cameras and microphone. A quick stop at a CVS for pantyhose and we arrived at the courthouse. You will be pleased to hear that we were kicked out of the licensing office and told to go wait in the hall because we were too rowdy and taking too many pictures. ?????
( I believe the gentleman in the photo with Tini, lodged the complaint)
The Hai suggests "You should never kiss the bride. She's like a flagship for virus and bacteria." ?????
High spirits, scientific thinking and viruses aside, the wedding went off with out a hitch. Vows were made, rings exchanged, a few tears shed ( always tears from me) and more pictures taken.
Then off to Jaleo"s for tapas and paella. 10 people, enough food ordered for 20. A successful recipe for happy guests.
Mr. Exuberance has just caught the train back to Connecticut, the newlyweds have gone home and we are ready to curl up with newspapers, computers and books.
And how was your weekend?
