I only have about 5 mins here because the flight leaves soon and i haven't packed yet... but thought we would leave you with a few pictures before departure. we couldn't have had a more beautiful day for the wedding. it was outside on the lawn of the gale mansion in minneapolis. Everything went very well and it seemed like our friends and family enjoyed themselves. we didn't want to hold people up from the party for very long so the ceremony was only about 10 mins. seemed like a long time to me when i was standing up there... only one real mishap and that was that the flower girl, Minnette (below) kind of tripped on the aisle runner and if it wasn't for our friend Raymond swooping in, it could have been a disaster. oh also another kind of mishap during the ceremony, multiple passersby yelling things at us from their bikes/cars. i couldn't help but totally crack up. oh also the musicians music blew away right before i was supposed to walk down the aisle. a lot of waiting... oh well that's the way these things go sometimes. ok, so three mishaps. more professional pictures to follow maybe when we get back from the trip. here are just a few shots.
We went over to the Arts Institute to snap a few pictures. did you know that the building is copywrited? so don't pull this picture off of here and put it in a brochure I guess. Heres the wedding party, from left, anton, pat, adam, dave, steve, me, kristen, ginny, erin and elissa.
Quintessential Minnette! She is a longtime friend of my dad's family and we couldn't have been happier that she agreed to be the flower girl in our wedding and was able to travel here from California. Almost 92 and still sharp as a tack. She was the hit of the party!
So long for now. will try to do a few updates while on the trip in the next 3 weeks. we are so excited to go we can't hardly stand it!!!
