Unfortunately he missed the best shot of all: the newlyweds departing for a 10-day honeymoon in Italy…

 April Showers                                                                   May 7, 2014

I managed to get a nice picture of our new in-laws after the ceremony…

She actually dragged him to Berwick Park on Monterey Bay in Pacific Grove, California, where they sealed the deal with the traditional wedding rings…

You may recognize these folks from “Wanted” posters hanging on post office walls across the country.  The Wiley Wilsons, as they are known to authorities, are notorious for sneaking into homes on Christmas Eve and swiping the cookies and milk left out for Santa.  All things considered, they are a perfect fit for the Bryan Bunch.  You chose well, Jenny Marie!

Our photographer turned out to be quite a character as well.  This guy could easily take over for the Energizer Bunny as he bounced around positioning all of us as well as himself to get just the picture he wanted…

April showers bring wedding flowers!  Okay, I know that is not exactly how that old adage goes but, in our case, that is exactly what has happened.  Our youngest daughter, THE baby, has finally managed to run down and pounce on some unsuspecting guy and drag him off, kicking and screaming the entire time, to the altar…

There’s nothing quite like relaxing in a hot bubble bath with a glass, or bottle, of good wine after a job well done!

We’ll get back to the usual nonsense next time.  Until then… Hugs, CC and Me

They then created an “insurance policy” of sorts with a “wine ceremony.”  This involved placing a bottle of Opus One and two unread letters saying how they feel about each other on this day in an oak container and locking it with 2 separate locks and keys.  If, by chance, their marriage should stumble at some future point, they would open the box, share the wine and read the letters from one to the other.  I’m betting that the groom, Jeff, is clever enough to get into the box, drink the good wine and replace it with a Safeway store brand long before they encounter any rough seas…

Arrivederci, Mr. & Mrs. Wilson!!!!!

But, of even more importance, he failed to capture this gratuitous wedding night boudoir photograph…
