Looking back, looking ahead

What a nice weekend.

Everything turned out to be as perfect as could be, from the decorations to the ceremony to the reception to the day after. Even the music was decent. :-)

Although we obviously didn’t get any candids from the wedding itself, here are a couple of before-and-afters.

Fink at the church, playing ancient Chinese ballad called Too Ning.

The reception hall was a 100-year-old school building in a small rural town nearby. This photo was taken mid-setup (decorations beautifully designed by BFF Kay).

Jake and Justin, being great helpers as Kay and I cleared the center table so the dancing could start.

One of the best pictures of the night: the Thriller, lost in conversation with his little girl.

And we danced (and danced and danced) the night away.

Their joy was contagious.

Last I heard, they were about halfway to their honeymoon cabin in the mountains. It was a fantastic weekend of reuniting with family and great times with friends.

After the marathon clean-up of Saturday night, the Thriller took me on a day trip to Cleveland yesterday. It was lovely to get away one last time before the true madness of the next 14 days begins (that would be today).

We had some casino fun (and came home with more bones than we left with — score!), had lunch out, then stopped at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory on the way home. What day that ends with chocolate cannot be called fabulous? I ask you.

So now: the look ahead. Kent State class begins tonight, and the push to opening (and Suzanne’s impending visit, YAY) begins tonight. Gonna be an interesting couple of weeks. Let’s roll!

    Sounds like it was a fabulous wedding. Good luck with the next two weeks. I wish I could say that I wish I could trade places with you but that would be a total lie. Still, sure you’ll get through it. You always do.
