wed-ed

July 12, 2007

So where are the post-wedding blog entries? What I can say is that I am still in a daze. At this point, the day is still indescribable (my brain is about as swift as my spelling). The photographs are trickling in. Here’s one that I took the morning after, and below, a few from John [...]

my new I-pod just about ruins my wedding

July 3, 2007

So, Rob’s been crafting some very specific playlists for our wedding. Hours in I-tunes of drag and drop and arranging. And the plan was of course, to place it all on our I-pod and happily scroll through the wedding day. Well, Perry’s I-pod failed (for the third time), so we went I-pod shopping. Decided the [...]

Wedding invitations

June 24, 2007

I suppose I have spent more time on our invitations than on anything else for this wedding. I don’t want to count the hours of thought and effort. My first wedding, I dunno know what I was thinking, the breadth and quantity of people I invited. I was young and socially inept. Now, I am [...]

Okay. I made additional effort, and added some things to our amazon.com registry. Not much, mind you, but I did add something “traditional”. :-)

Seattle in July

June 19, 2007

A few things to consider if you are in Seattle in July. It rains on July 4th, invariably, and is nice every day after that until the end of September (well, pretty much). “Nice” means up to 75-80 degrees on average, and daylight until, oh, 9:00 or so. The Henry is NOT charging admission from [...]

What makes a wedding?

June 18, 2007

Note, not “what makes a marriage”, but, “what makes a wedding”? Many artists and geniuses are contributing to the schemes and details of my Big Day. The key players and elements include our priest, our cake, our caterer, and, our “clown”. Steffon Moody is working his magic on the course of events. His day job [...]

What are you going to wear?

June 17, 2007

T minus 20 days, and I can FINALLY say that yes, I know what I am going to wear. It took an attitude shift: yesterday on the acupuncture table I realized that I ought to stop thinking, “I need to look for a dress” and start thinking “I am going to find a dress.” And [...]

wedding gifts

June 16, 2007

What a tricky topic. There’s official etiquette on this: the soon-to-be-married couple is supposed to convey their (our) desires, but not ask for anything … like, when asked, “Are you registered anywhere?” our job is to answer, “Yes, we are registered at ______” but any specific/direct requests for gifts is verboten. Oh. And the other [...]

our priest, Robby Pellett

June 6, 2007

We met with Robby again last night. This time to talk with more detail about the marriage ceremony he will give us. I am still thrilled that Robby is doing this; his questions and comments and the overall essence of his ceremony is so right. It gives me assurance that my marriage is so right–that [...]

another world

May 10, 2007

Just back from my first trip to St. Louis. The days were filled with fortuitious moments, including luck with the weather and random intersections with people and places. I had a great time. Met nice people, including my future in-laws. Purtin-near filled a gig with photographs. St. Louis is VERY different from Seattle, and very [...]
