Wedding Pix, Finally

So sue me, I was slow getting these up...but better late than never, right?

Well, anyone that knows me knows that I tend to have rotten luck with gatherings that I plan, so, needless to say, it was very nice (and somewhat surprising!) to pull this one off. Of course, caliban was already here, and I knew that nostradomnatrix and bigdaddygoat were flying in from DC, but past that, it was pretty much a 'hope for the best' situation. Still, in the end, it was quite a group, with a good feel. Most showed up at my place, and drove out to the in-laws' place, with only one straggler, who was right behind us.

Just as a note, this is a beautiful piece of land. Quiet, out of the way, with a great view...this is looking from the house back up the driveway:
And this is off the porch, down the hill...more land there than it looks, and it's all part of the property:
We chose to hold the ceremony out front, at the bench that sits beneath two trees:
Once we were all gathered, I welcomed everyone, and we got down to business.

As you see, Di was dressed up in a medieval dress, and I was a biker. I had a gargoyle thing ready to do, but discovered that it had been in storage too long, and wasn't gonna be able to be used. Had to pull something together at the last minute. Funny, it didn't really look all that different from me, normally...
Anyway, Di started off with her vows to me...
And then it was my turn.

Yes, that's Erik between us, I had a piece I spoke to him as well. Kinda looks like Death was presiding over the wedding!
Afterwards, caliban read a closing bit:

As it turns out, it was almost exactly the same thing that nostradomnatrix and bigdaddygoat closed their ceremony with, so it was kinda emotional.

Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness, for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead and through all the years.
May happiness be your companion and your days together be good and long upon the earth.
Lastly, it was time for the obligatory kiss...

...not that I'm complaining, mind you.
I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge my video camera crew:

bigdaddygoat wielding the camera, while Di looks on...and look, on the left, we managed to snap a pic of optimusjesse, so it proves he was there.
When he wasn't doing anything else, caliban had our camera...and somehow, I think he didn't want to be seen doing that...
After everything was said and done, it was time to hit the food...and what a spread!

That's Di's mom, whiny_general, on the left, who arranged all the food, above and beyond what I expected...
...including a checkerboard cake!
It all went over well...pictured here: caliban, strangewink, bigdaddygoat, me, and Thom (who we have yet to convince to get an LJ :P)
delilahbowie and tsomewhereime
Managed to snag one good shot of delilahbowie and her beau, John:
The ladies got in a good shot together:
...and another that shows they were thinking of me:
A good one of us and my East Coast Travelin' Family:
...and you expected this, right?
I know you're sick of seeing the two couples posed, but people ask about my house, so I left it in:

Yes, it's cluttered, but damn interesting.
Oh, and proof that I'm a tall guy:
One last thing...I've been told I'm an animated kinda speaker...



...dunno what you're talking 'bout.
