March 21, 2014 Our Wedding Day

The morning started around 6:30 AM when I whispered in Tony's ear 'today's our day'.  He gave me a kiss and we soon got up out of bed to feed the dogs and get the day started.  Spent the early morning reading the newspaper.  By 8:30 AM I was in the shower so Tony could soon follow.  Got dressed in our suits and looking good.  Around 10 AM Tony's nephew showed up at the house.  He was coming with us to take pictures.  Tony's mom, and sister as well as three of our lunch buddies showed up on time by 10:45 AM.  The limo soon pulled up in the back alley.  We took a bunch of pictures in front of the limo.  In hindsight I wish I had the pictures taken in the front of the house.  I had to use a bit of photoshop to make them look like this:

The limo left a little after 11 AM and we then took the hour and a half ride down to Skokie Illinois to get married at the clerk of courts office.  Here are some pictures inside the limo on the way down to Illinois.
 Arrived at The Cheesecake Factory where we planned lunch before the ceremony.  Got to the restaurant on time and had a great lunch.  Here is a picture from lunch Tony's sister took.

After lunch and right on schedule we went to the clerk of court house around 2 PM.  Got to the court house and made it through the security having to take off our belts and empty pockets.  I beeped three times because I had things in pockets I forgot I had and my mind was not working.  Got signed in to find out the ceremony was not what we expected.  Was no way of changing anything so it had to be what it was.  A short 2 minute ceremony.  Almost didn't get any pictures because I sent the nephew photographer outside to get something from the car and he got help up at security as they called us to be next.  Had a small bridezilla moment but eventually he arrived and got the entire minute and a half on video.  Here is a picture of us at the end of the ceremony when I was just about to cry.

After the short wedding ceremony we all got back into the limo for the ride home.  Bought a strawberry cheesecake for the ride home.  Drank Champagne and ate cheesecake on the way home.
Got home around 4:45 PM and had a wonderful day.  Everyone left and after we got settled in I went across the alley to get the basket of food the neighbor had put together for us.  Lasagna, bread, salad and desert.  It was so thoughtful and good.  Here is a picture of the spread.

Spent the night watching TV and reflecting on the day.  Went to bed around 10 PM and had a great round of lovin.  All in all, a perfect day.  We are finally after 25 years together legally married.
