“Miss” Nemesis No More

Theric and I were lucky enough to get to attend the celebrations surrounding the Blessed Event: Miss Nemesis's marriage to GF.

Now that she is no longer a 'Miss' I guess we shall have to start referring to her as 'Mrs.' or 'Ms.' Nemesis. Hopefully she will advise us on her wishes regarding this matter. I shall refer to her now as 'the Bride'

On with the photos!

The Bride was beautiful.

And happy too--which bodes well for the future of the marriage.

Also, her dress was gorgeous! A perfect fit for the Bride.

The flowers were lovely. I personally loved the green mums.

Also, I thought the stephanotis flowers in the Bride's hair were beautiful--more unique and elegant than a veil.

Upon arriving at the reception site, just a little bit early, Jenny, the Bride's sister, grabbed me and begged me to help decorate the cake with fresh flowers.

Not too shabby considering it was done in five minutes' time.

The hors d'oeuvres were delicious. These cucumber things were Theric's favorite.

He even cut in line to get more of them. Mortifying!

The Bride was blessed with lovely parents. After knowing the Bride since our freshman year of college, I was very happy to finally get to meet her parents in person. I must say the Bride does a spot-on impression of her mother.

Here I captured the Bride's father sharing some 'brief' words. 'Brief' words about how it took his daughter so long to get married. It must have been very embarrassing for the Bride--which may have been the point.

But hey! Thanks for the great reception, Father of the Bride! You pay, you say what you want.

It was beautiful and delicious. I wish I had remembered to take some pictures of the food to share with you, but I was so hungry the food never had a chance to pose.

The whole affair came off without a hitch, as far as I could tell. Though there was that part where the Bride developed a very cute, adoring, flower-carrying, twirling, growth after emerging from the temple. But the Bride dealt with it in a very kind and loving manner.

The whole thing was a lovely affair. Bride, thank you for letting Theric and I attend.

And congratulations, you two lovebirds.

Coast Guard Day

The day before Coast Guard Day my parents had us over to celebrate Theric's day of birth. My mother cooked us a delicious meal and bought Theric a cake.

We loaded that cake up with the appropriate amount of candles, lit them up and tried not to catch anything on fire as we brought it to the table. Theric used only one blow to extinguish all the candles--very impressive.

I thought this picture was cool--look at all that smoke!

I wonder if he got his wish?
