I got married a week and half ago! What a wonderful day it was. The sun was shining, the weather was calm and warm, and my best friend promised to love me forever. Who could ask for more?
Aside from a few minor glitches, like the Minister canceling on us the day before the wedding (don’t get me started), everything went really well. Not surprisingly so I must say. I followed the K.I.S.S. method for wedding planning…for those that don’t know, K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple(or Small) Stupid. Or something like that. My wedding may not have been as flashy and elegant as some, but everyone seemed to have a really nice time. More importantly, I did not have to go Bridezilla on anyone. The wedding ceremony was outside on the 55th hole of the golf course at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Traverse City, MI. The ceremony was followed by a small reception on the 17th floor of the resort tower. The scenery was breathtaking and the food was delicious.
I must give special props for the cake. If I hadn’t just gotten married…I would have married that cake. I just asked for a dark chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and left the rest up to the resorts pastry chef. Well, my hat is off to you sir or madam, because that was the best damn cake I have ever eaten in my whole life…and trust me, I have eaten a lot of cake.
Now that I am back home, and back to my daily grind, it all kinda seems like a dream. As pictures come in from various friends and family, I am reminded that even without all of the glitz and glamor and STRESS of a big wedding, it was beautiful and special and the best day of my life.
Did I mention the cake?
