Two years today

About this time two years ago, I think we were finishing up the pictures, and wondering if Guy was ok (as his truck had broken down on the way to the wedding) and if Eric's aunt and uncle would find the place all right (they did, just a bit late - we held everything for them, of course). I was going to get yelled at by my cousin's wife for being seen by the guests before the wedding (the horror!) and shoved out of the room to hide in the hallway with my bridesmaids. My sister-in-law was going to be a complete pill (as she had been all that week), and Eric's nephew was going to start crying just as I walked in the door.

Honestly? It took looking back through my journal to remember most of that. When I think of our wedding, I remember the flowers Susie arranged, the centerpieces Eric's parents made, the cake Selena and her mom made, the ZOMGSOGOOD food Guy made (with Angela's boyfriend Matt's help on-site), the beautiful ceremony Gwen helped us write, the wedding dress Natalina made for me (after cursing the designer of the pattern multiple times), the people who stood up with us, read for us, sang for us, played music for us, toasted us, and just generally had a good time with us. I remember realizing that we had the best idea EVAR to have the head table at the end of the food line, the chants of "Cake! Caaaaaaake!" when Stultz got up to toast us, and the cheers when everyone found out Eric managed to miss my feet during our first dance. I remember the My Little Pony massacre, and a drunken Elmo. I remember friends swapping out the brain-teasers on the tables so they could solve them all, and Eric's family working on a fairly sizable puzzle. I remember trying to make my mother laugh on the way down the aisle, so she wouldn't cry. (It didn't work, but my brother and I gave it a noble effort.) I remember Stultz making the best catch of his career, and managing NOT to light the place on fire.

Most of all, I remember seeing Eric at the end of the aisle, and realizing that I had made the right choice. I never felt nervous, or second-guessed myself. Two years later, I feel the same way.

Happy Anniversary, Handsome.

Big congrats to you.

Has it only been two years, though?

Two years since the wedding - we've been together for a little over four years. (Were dating for almost exactly a year before we got engaged, and then were engaged for about 16 months saving up the money for the wedding. :) )

I can't believe it's been two years! Crazy! Dan and I started dating right before your wedding, though, so I guess it has been...

That was seriously one of the best weddings I've been too.

I am so happy for you both (even though I'm still a bit dubious about Eric...).

Strangely, that's what all of my friends say. :)

By the by, you'd BETTER be having some sort of massive going-away-type party before you move East. Any chance of you ever coming to Game Night again (now that it's on Fridays)? We miss you! I haven't seen you in entirely too long.

There will be massive party (perhaps several of them) at my place before we abscond. I'm going to attempt to come to game night at some point in the next few weeks - this week in heading to Maine to visit Dan (yay!) so I'll be out of town, but perhaps the week after?

Living in the burbs makes me want to stick close to home - it's such a damned pain to get in-out of town via bus (as you well know).

I'm a bit dubious about Eric, too. Perhaps he needs to be investigated. Thoroughly.
Apr. 9th, 2008 01:19 am (UTC)
Indeed, although thankfully - not by me. I think I'll let Steph field that "investigation."
Apr. 9th, 2008 09:55 pm (UTC)
I concur. Sketchy character, at best.

Happy Anniversary to the both of you. I loved that day, and was one of the happiest of my last several years.

I'm still honored that you wanted me to be a part of it, and am still, 2 years later, working on the present for you.

Love to you both, part of my chosen family.

And don't forget the DOOOOOOOOM! Sooooo much doom!

Happy Anniversary, you two!

*saunters away humming 'doom doom da doom, doom doom da doom...'*

Icon = awesome

many, many happinesses to you both, always.

it is wonderful to see...
a couple of wonderful people happy!! Even though I don't get to see you guys often, it is great to see you so happy. Kinda scary how time flies and how I am fortunate enough to know that all of the friends I have that are married seem to be in the "perfect" marriages. :-) I put that in quotes bc, well, let's face it... there are ups and downs but if at the end of the day you never stop loving... well that is KEY!!! I hope you guys have 50+ more years!
Apr. 11th, 2008 12:16 am (UTC)
I was very honored to be a part of your day, and am so glad you are both still so happy. (And also glad that I got my sillies out at the rehearsal; see "doom doom da doom" above.)
