Our Wedding

























(Remember you can click on the photos to make them larger.)

We're just back yesterday from our honeymoon (and marriage) in Rarotonga. Everything was fabulous and much better than I'd expected. I was nervous about speaking/vows in front of other people (even though there were only 4 - the marriage celebrant, two witnesses and the photographer) but to be honest, when it came time, it was all good.

We had our wedding night dinner at the Crown Beach Resort down the road, in a private gazebo. The waiter would come by in a golf cart with each course, then leave us completely alone for a half an hour or so to eat etc. As you can see, when we came back from the wedding ceremony, there were beautiful flowers in the room, shaped into a heart on the bed. It ended up, all in all, being mellow, pleasant, and just overall perfect.

Just a note that the photos have been reduced in size, so if anyone is interested in having copies to print, just leave a note in the comments or email me and I'll send you what you need.

Beautiful pictures Susan - many many congratulations to you and Steve and all the very best for the future.

The holiday photos look great too - what a smashing place! Can't see paula's scooter doing too well on the beach so it's unlikely for us, but it ooks so much like a tropical paradise - you are so fortunate to have experienced it.

Best Wishes

Steve (T'Other one)

Congratulations Susan and Steve. Sure beats a wedding at Fox's in Orland Park. Our best wishes to you both.

Mary, Dennis and Thomas

Suzer said...

Thanks:) Mmmm Fox's...makes me think of a Reuben (sandwiches down here are so....slim).

marden said...

A Reuben is Mary's favorite. I'm a bit more of a connoisseur and lean towards a bag of sliders.
