Susie and I are officially husband and wife!

Wedding Day

It was a fantastic day on Friday as all our friends gathered to celebrate this special day. We planned on having a ceremony on the beach near Davidson Head on San Juan Island. We invited family and a few close friends to the ceremony. The day before was beautiful so we had our fingers crossed that the sun would again come out for our day. Obviously you can’t control the weather and it rained all day, so we improvised. Instead of the beach, we cleared our living room and had it there. Susie and I were both nervous, tears flowed and it turned out to be a very special moment in our lives. I would like to thank Bob for officiating and Verne and Wendy for being by our sides as Best Man and Maid of Honor. It was also very nice to have my big sister, little brother, daughter and son-in-law there to share the moment along with Susie’s close friends Tammy and Jim.

From there it was off to the Golf Club where my son Micah was orchestrating the reception. It was touching to have so many there to celebrate our marriage with us at the reception. Micah whipped up some amazing food as he is well-known for doing and my daughter Shyla made an amazing wedding cake for us.

The Cake…Wow!

We ate, drank, talked and danced. I want to thank everyone for their kind words, gifts and presence on our wedding day, especially those who made the trek on the ferry or plane to come up to be with us.

As you can imagine, wine flowed at our reception. Bubbles abounded along with red and white wine. Being the wine guy that I am, I did a quick inventory of what was consumed. Townshend Cellars Purple Table Red was a hands-down favorite as there were zero left-overs. The Isenhower Benjamin’s Button Cab was also well received along with a couple of the Pinot Noir. Graham Beck Brut was our sparkler for the event. I’ve mentioned that Susie and I discovered this on our trip to South Africa. Graham Beck is a winery in South Africa that is dedicated to making bubbles and they do an incredible job. Very “Champagne” like in quality, but not in price. It was also very popular at our event. I am looking forward to a happy future with my lovely bride. She is the love of my life and we were made for each other. The honeymoon will be in March when we take off to London, Paris, the Loire Valley and Italy. We are looking forward to seeing all our friends in the U.K. this time as a married couple.
