Wedding Summary

Well, here we are, back in Burbank. Mark is back to work, and I am organizing life and home. Mark and I were both so busy before we left for the East Coast that the apt was left in chaos. Kato is so happy that we are back. He follows us around like a skinny furry shadow.
The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! A spectacle! So many people, even strangers, said that 'it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen.' I was giddy and so excited! I couldn't eat a darn thing for days before, and for me that is unheard of. Mark was (and is) so handsome. He is all I saw during the ceremony. I made my entrance from a loud, beat-up pick up truck, and then was escorted by my Father and Step-Father. Marks Mom, Marion and Sis, Holly performed two songs for us. And my bestest friends, Christy and Sherie both read a poem. And we stole the Handfasting ritual from Christy's wedding, which we agreed was super cool. We literally tied the knot! My friend, Katherine, played the hammered dulcimer, and my friend, Ted, painted the ceremony while it was happening!! Mark got his wish!
My good friends Frank and Muffy supplied the flower girl and ringbearer, their daughter, Jorgie, and son, Arlo. Cute beyond words!
Humpback whales spouted behind us during the ceremony, which could only mean good luck! I had been going to Monhegan for 8 years, and never saw one whale! They were waiting for my wedding, of course!
Then a magnificent thunderstorm, worthy of Tolkein, blasted through after the ceremony, while we were dining! Again, could only mean good luck!
So, I love, love, love being a wife, being married, having a husband, and saying,'Oh, well, my husband works on Family Guy,' 'Let me ask my husband', 'This is my husband, Mark.' Hee-hee.
Much more to come, and soon I should have a link to more photos!
