Today’s wedding was a lot of fun, and I’ll be posting pictures from it tomorrow. But this was just too much fun to wait on – the church has two cats living there, and they come and go as they please (as cats are wont to do) – during the middle of the mass, this one got up on the altar…
We picked up my ring from our jeweler this afternoon – I love it! The little diamonds belonged to my great great grandmother!
(For my fellow nerds – this photo was taken indoors, low light, with my iPhone4 – I’m pretty impressed with what its camera can do)
We got Patsy’s engagement ring back from our amazing jeweler today, and it is everything we could have hoped for.
The diamond belonged to my great-great-grandmother, and it is really wonderful that we were able to have a new heirloom made from something with a long family history.
I’m having her make a ring for me as well, using itsy-bitsy diamonds and some little sapphires.
Sorry Patsy, how can I resist a 50-foot woman?
Actually, I think he’s the real groom… (And he breathes fire, so I’m not even gonna consider it…)
The real story:
We discovered an AMAZING museum in downtown Bangkok, called the Bangkok Arts and Culture Center. Free admission, Guggenheim-like architecture, and tons and tons of fantastic art. It was barely mentioned in Lonely Planet, so we almost missed it (it’s oddly nestled in Siam Square in between some of the giantest malls we’ve ever seen (even big by the standards of bride and groom above.)) (And yes, I am in love with giant robots, but Patsy knows she has no competition )
The marriage for alien sign was spotted somewhere while randomly wandering Bangkok’s Chinatown.
A few from yesterday’s wedding in Scituate.
Today’s wedding was pretty unconventional, in fantastic and fun ways. At the moment when the bride reappeared in a red chinese wedding dress, the groom reappeared in a kilt – and he did this great jump for me
Today’s wedding was a real treat – Juliana and Jared were a pleasure to work with, so relaxed and happy, and just an awful lot of fun. After the wedding ceremony, we took a walk to the Christian Science Center for formals out by the reflecting pool – it was a perfect setting – a beautiful backdrop for a photogenic couple.
Today’s wedding was fantastic – a beautiful couple, a beautiful setting, happy guests from all over the world… I’ll probably post a few more tomorrow, but in the meantime here’s the bride, Elnaz. Her dress was handmade by her aunt and shipped all the way from Iran, what an amazing story…
