A Wedding Meme?

I'm feeling a little sappy, so why not?

1. How long were you and your wife dating before you got engaged? A year and change.

2. What date did you get engaged? April 2, 2000

3. [Question about maiden names that does not apply]

f. Marrying off their only child

6. When did you get married? June 15, 2002

7. Did you leave the next morning for your Honeymoon? We have yet to take a honeymoon. We didn't have any money at the time and we just recently started to really make money, but now we're pregnant, so maybe by the time we're married for 10 years we'll get around to that.

8. Was the ceremony in a church? If not, where? Yep. We held it at a humongous Baptist church that in hindsight we didn't really need.

9. What were your wedding colors? Black and gold.

Sleeves
Two-piece
Family Heirloom

11. Who was your Best Man? My good buddy The Masked Doctoral Student.

12. What time was the ceremony? Haha...I forget. 2:30, maybe?

Hee...I forgot about him fainting!! that is so classic. :)

Hmm...there should have been a question about who sang at the ceremony so then I could get an honorable mention. ;)

And your wedding was just lovely.....I have pictures to prove it.

and just b/c it's that time of the year and I HAVE to do it.....

GO BUCKS!!!

ps. her dress wasn't strapless--it just didn't have sleeves. ;)

Oh yeah, it was. I should've looked at a picture first.

There's a lesson in here somewhere about proof that the marriage is more important than the ceremony.
