9 years ago today...

9 years ago today I married my best friend. We had been living together for 6 years at that point so we have been together for 15 years now and it certainly does not feel like it has been that long.

We had our wedding at Millpond in Bishop California. It was a beautiful blue sky day just like it is today. I guess it was kind of a country wedding, casual not formal, although my groom and I were very formal we suggested our guests dress as casually as they wanted. We had a tasty BBQ buffet that was grilled by our good friends Rob and Chris, who graciously stepped in when our cook didn't show. Our bar was the family row boat, we just filled it with ice, beer and wine etc.
All of the flowers were given to us by generous family members, and my sweet cousin Debbie did all of the flower arranging with a lot of help from all of our cousins.
Debbie also saved the cake! You see, I had a funky topsy turvy cake ordered and just before I walked down the "aisle" someone came to me and said "just don't look at the cake"! What?!
Well it turned out that the decorator showed up and said she was ill so she had a hard time making the cake. It was basically a three tiered blob of white lumpy fondant. Awful. So Deb just covered the entire thing with fresh flowers! Genius, everyone thought it was gorgeous. I would post a photo of it but I glued all my photos into a scrapbook and to get the photos above I had to photograph my photographs and the photos of the cake are too dark. :0)
It was such a wonderful day.
Here's to many many more of those wonderful days with my best friend, my husband.

The pictures are beautiful, and charming, but the story of your cake is absolutely wonderful. Hurray for fast thinking, creative friends!

I'm sure your work is often grueling, but there is a lot to be said for determining your own path.
