Sweetest Day

On June 15, 2006 at 9:30PM, Bethany and I were married in a small candlelit ceremony with our family and close friends in attendance. It was beautiful, romantic, filled with love and plenty of fun. There are way to many details of the evening to post them all right now. All I can say is that it was a perfect day in every respect. From picking up friends at the airport, to picking up the cakes and desserts, to getting dressed, to seeing my beautiful bride for the first time, to taking pictures in the park, to eating dinner with the Best Ma’am and Man of Honor, to the space lit entirely by candles, to the beautiful music, to Rev Xanthia, to the heart felt and personal vows, to the moment we kissed, to the dessert and very expensive champagne, to the wedding night spent in our new loft space at home – It was all like a very beautiful dream. I know it was not because we have pictures to prove it all really happened.

This was followed by a whirlwind of setup, cooking, driving, picking up, delivering, frantic hand waving and then…

On June 17th, 2006 at 7:00pm, Bethany and I had a kick-ass reception. I won’t go into great detail as Bethany has done a much better and more thorough job on Indebride (she begins her 12 step program soon we hope). Let me just say that we put a lot of work into it and had a lot of fun. It was the exactly what we both wanted and envisioned and came off without a hitch.

I am still filled with humble wonderment every time I look at her and say “This is my wife”.

Update: Pictures from our friend Val here.

I feel like Michael and I have just been knighted by the queen! My website, co-designed with Michael, has been picked as one of the Screens Around Town by the 37 Signals guys. This is a regular feature of web design they deem to be top notch and examples of “Getting Real”. It is quite an honor.

Cruel to Be Kind

Why oh why do the otherwise nice folks at 37 Signals taunt me this way? Here is a screencast of the not-yet-released calendar feature they are adding to Backpack.
