The Day After


The big day! Ended up being us two, minister and photographer, Ann, and this cute little model couple Ja knows. Very sweet, simple ceremony. We were actually late, the first cab didnt show up after they found out we were on our way to get married and hailed a second cab. The minister was good natured … Continue reading The Day After

Five Hours Before the Wedding


  So, three people just backed out. What is it with Seattleites? Passive-Aggressive Shits who say one thing and do another. ON the day of our Wedding. I should be used to it, I mean, it's happened each time I tried to throw a Wine Party, invite people to dinner, set up a meeting for coffee/movie/walk, … Continue reading Five Hours Before the Wedding

Day Before the Wedding


All our ducks are lined up for the Wedding tomorrow! We heard from the Minister and read the script he'll use tomorrow, minus our 'secret' vows to each other and special memories, so we'll be surprised at/for each other. The Minister also found us a photographer who promises to take lots of pictures, she'll even … Continue reading Day Before the Wedding

Two Days Until the Wedding


Made a trip to Seatac International Airport to pick up BF's best friend for the wedding. We took the light link rail from Downtown Seattle to the airport-the ride is very pretty, going through all the neighborhoods and suburbs, then around the airport. Found her at the very end terminal then walked back and brought … Continue reading Two Days Until the Wedding

Three Days Until the Wedding and Apartment Inspection Done


The apartment inspection is done, manager, maintenance and city inspector just left. The inspector found some minor things but nothing to get upset over. He did ask why the stove fan didn't work and I said we couldn't afford to get it fixed. Manager said 'oh you don't pay for that', which was  a direct … Continue reading Three Days Until the Wedding and Apartment Inspection Done

Four Days Until the Wedding & Apartment Inspection


Four days until the big "I DO's"!  We're both still excited and not really nervous yet.  BF said he totally understands Bridezillas now.  He's been calling and dealing with all the preparations because I can't hear on phones. The biz's have been pretty good with him, as no one would dare tell a former Army … Continue reading Four Days Until the Wedding & Apartment Inspection

5 Days Until the Wedding


The minister gave us homework, a small questionnaire for each of us to fill out. Me, being a writer, answered more than he really wanted, so he had to pare down my answers. Ask a writer a question, they'll give you an answer!  He asked us our favorite qualities of our fiance, our favorite memory of … Continue reading 5 Days Until the Wedding

7 Days Until the Wedding


BF changed his mind about the minister and hired a different one, "The Elopement Minister". Apparently a ceremony that is twenty minutes or under is called an elopement and a ceremony is over twenty, up to an hour.  I cannot imagine. We both just want it done. This minister is giving us homework, lol. Questions … Continue reading 7 Days Until the Wedding

8 Days Until the Wedding


BF finally found a minister we both like, application and fee paid, which was about the same price as the tuxedos, good lord. But, after two previous ministers backed out, we're lucky to get one at all this late. Our friend, let's call him "Snowflake", over-promised what his minister friend would/could do. That wasted about … Continue reading 8 Days Until the Wedding

Fitting for the Tuxes-9 days till the Wedding


We went to Men's Wearhouse, after some bigwig called the store to make an appointment for us when they wouldn't return BF's two phone messages. I had to make a public complaint on Twitter that they were ignoring us to rent tuxedos to us for our wedding. We got there and were helped by the … Continue reading Fitting for the Tuxes-9 days till the Wedding
