So it’s official. I am now a married man.
LD and drove up to SLO for our “let’s decompress after school let’s out” vacation. And this year, LD had to scrape me off the floor and pack me in the car. I just needed to get away.
Enter the hotel. The Cliff’s resort in Pismo Beach was fantastic. Diego was able to come along and the resort was oh so accommodating to our four legged baby. Our morning walks were fantastic. Diego was able to run off leash on the beach every morning. I think he got a little spoiled.
Anyway, back to the important date, Wednesday, June 18, 2008. Friends RS(S. Pasadena) and P&SF (San Jose), drove in to Pismo to help officiate the ceremony. The gang met us at Louisa’s Cafe in SLO for breakfast and then we headed over to the SLO County Clerk’s Office. Sophie was sworn in as a Deputy Justice of the Peace for the day while LD and I applied for our wedding license. After that was in order we walked to the Mission San Luis Obispo, found a nice little shaded area in front of the church and Sophie did her thing.
Disaster was averted when we pulled out the rings. We had a case of fumble fingers and almost lost one fo the rings dow a sewer grate that was situated right where we stood. <Whew>…thank goodness for all those quick reflexes.
Sophie was a pro and manuevered us through a lovely little ceremony. Yea, I got all choked up while reciting my vows but was happy nonetheless.
It was a brilliant day. It was a great celebration of LD and me with some great friends and some wonderful memories.
I am married now to the person I love. I am very happy. Pictures following.
