Wedding Bells

Posted by and1grad on September 4, 2008

I need to take a timeout and send an extra special Congratulations to one of my main men (Horsemen!!) and his new bride.

Let me tell you about their wedding. Ladies and Gentlemen, this was Disney at its finest. The layout…elegant. The wedding party…a beautiful, eclectic mix. The ceremony…top shelf. The wedding took place not far from San Diego. Its a place that can only be described as…wait, I’ll let them describe it:

“There is a place like no other in Southern California. It lies tucked away in a peaceful valley surrounded by gently rolling hills and sparkling waters. It is a serene setting where sweet floral laced breezes gently blow; where the soothing sound of waterfalls will relax your mind; and where a majestic forest of trees offers complete privacy from the rest of the world. There is a place embodying the timeless charm of a bygone era when romance, joy, and beauty were what really mattered. Only here will you find friendly, smiling faces; where exceptional service is not just expected but assured by offering perfection only attainable through experience. There is a place were taste truly matters; where culinary artists take pride in serving only the finest flavors and freshest delicacies. There is a place where love and excitement fill the air; where all of your worries can wait until another day.”

Wow. Take that, Denny’s! Seriously though, I mentioned Disney earlier. Thats b/c this wedding was about as fairy tale as can be. Bride comes in on a carriage led by two white horses and a kind of surly Monopoly man type figure. He actually reminds me of the guy that the Scooby Doo Detective Agency always thinks is guilty in the beginning but it turns out he’s just old and surly. I digress. There was a man made lake…with a swan. Here’s what the brochure doesnt tell you. The swan…it hates you. We walked by it and it tries to take a peck at you. Anyway, the ceremony was excellent.

The reception was a good time also. One of my other horsemen, Mr. President, gave a FANTASTIC best man speech. The rest was pretty much standard…however I did notice that when the music started, it was mostly US on the dance floor and them in the seats. A couple of soul train lines formed and yours truly did actually bust-a-move just a lil bit…which if you know me, you know is a rare thing. Saturday Night FeverI still need to learn that Cha Cha Slide tho. Right now, it’d probably look like I was doing The Humpty Dance. OH!! The highlight of the night…the video montage. That was excellent. It was kinda like the ending of When Harry Met Sally. When Harry Met Sally
Line of the night: “What do YOU know about being a Baptist?” Loved it.

Mr. & Mrs. C…I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. I believe and hope that your union will bring out the best of yourselves and the best of each other. God bless.
