Married.....to the Best Woman in the World

Saturday was the big day. No, I didn't catch a huge fish, I got married to a wonderful woman. The weather was perfect, all our friends and family were there (except my daughter Megan who had to be in L.A. with her new job) and everything went great. Happy does not begin to describe how I feel now. Here's a few pictures.

Here we are at the start of the ceremony and everyone is cracking up because I was looking for my fly rod......there's fish in the pond!

Just after the ceremony, that's my sister in the pink and my daughter Leigh in the yellow.
Brian and my sister Barbara, sister Christina, bro John, and Christina's husband John protecting the booze and just getting started....
Some of the folks at the start of the reception.....the food was on the way. Yeah, we served the beer in bottles......we lost our bartender when we dumped the caterer. That's my mom, center behind the flowers, 80 years young.
Cutting the cake, gotta have a pic of the cake cutting. It was carrot cake with cream cheese between layers and egg-cream icing on the outside.....decadent stuff. It was gone.......
Of course, when you cut the cake, you have to eat the cake.......no, we didn't smash it into each others face.....
And what would a wedding be without dancing................
It was a day to remember. Family, friends, good food, music and loads of fun. We're off to our mini-honeymoon Saturday at the beach in Avon, NJ for the week (yup, I plan on fishing), then later in the year we're off to .........

Life is good. Mind if I go fishing, dear?.....................of course, honey, after you paint the house, clean the garage, and give me your credit cards....is there a SALE anywhere today?
