And Then They Got Hitched!
On September 9th, 2010 we got hitched!
When most people imagine their wedding day, the first thing they think about is going through an airport-level security screening complete with metal detectors and x-rays of the rings. Ahhhh tradition.
The wedding was scheduled for 5:30 and since the courthouse officially closes at 5:00 we got to walk through the deserted building.
Judge Bloch was a jovial guy. This picture was right before we began - our friend instructed us to "look nervous" - 2 out of 3 of us understood those directions.....the shorter two.
After that it was all smooth sailing!
Judge Bloch told us this is known as "the money shot"
After the wedding we chatted with the judge in his chambers. We talked about art, rocks and our friend Lori persuaded him to put on his robe and pose with his gavel. We de-friended soon after.
The guy on the bench kept clinking his glass.
Here's the entire wedding party! Left to right: Nancy (Maid of honor), Brian, Renee, Lori (Best woman), tree.
Take THAT threshold!
We love you all very much and are very excited for our ceremony back in Michigan in June!
