Third time's the charm

I finally have a daughter-in-law.

Favorite quote:
"They're gonna get married if I have to do it myself!" Uttered from the Most Reverend Doctor Lunasea, who graciously got herself ordained in the Christian Glory Church where Glory reigns and where, with a minimum of fuss, you too can be a minister; just so we could actually have an end to the saga. Of course, it helps that she was well aware of, and in fact attended one of, the previous attempts.

Michael & Mariela Wedding

This shindig was thrown together at the very last minute (seriously) and turned out just lovely. Despite the rainy day, we had a very nice time. We had a real cake, incredible lobster stuffed filet, twice baked potatoes, asparagas bundles etc. I actually don't know if this link will work, but Picasa offered me the option, so I'm trying it.

I managed not to have to go trick or treating with LK the evening before, so I spent my time finishing up favors and table decorations. This is not really the way I'd suggest throwing a wedding, but it worked. Of course, it helps to have family members who own a catering and rental shop. We definitely took advantage of their expertise and inventory. It was either that or paper plates. The minister was the groom's godmother and the caterer was the groom's godfather. Kinda nice that way.

The Bride's immediate family will still not recognize the relationship, but a couple of cousins and a friend were able to share the day, so thankfully, she was not all alone with just her inlaws! All in all, it was a very nice day.

another milestone down - only 3 weeks or so for the next one! Fortunately for us, some other little character is responsible for arranging that one.

Loving the pictures. I have one of my newly expanded family on my desktop. Hopefully I'll have a new complete family picture to put up/frame after the holidays.

PS: Beautiful job on the flowers, very classy. Time well spent in my opinion. :)
