Surprise!

I doubt you'll guess what I was up to this past weekend. It's seemed to surprise everyone I've told so far, so I'm going to give you some clues....

It involved little girls carrying little silver bags

and paperwork

and flowers

and hand holding

and rings
and kissing


and more kissing

on Catalina Island,


which all culminated with the creation of a new family

and an impressive stretch limousine golfcart departure.


Surprise!

Thanks to all of you for such kind comments! We're excited (if a tiny bit overwhelmed).

I have to say that the wedding turned out better than I expected for having planned it in 30 days and purchasing my dress online :-)But when you keep it that small, there's just not all that much to plan.

Thanks again!
