Yes, indeed I said it ... wife. No, she didn't get cold feet and neither did I. So, on an absolutely beautiful warm Georgia Summer Saturday, Courtney and I became husband and wife. It was a hell of a time. I really had a blast. It was amazing to share such an important event with family and many tremendous friends.
For all those placing bets, I didn't cry. Now pay up.
My sometimes very cool groomsmen and ushers made the week for me though. I have no officially upgraded to the "next-gen" video game system, with a brand new PS3. NCAA College Football 08 just came out on the 17th, so I am in heaven.
The honeymoon was equally kick ass. We stayed at a fabulous resort. The service was sharp, the weather was great (except for a little rain that first day), and we were able to be as lazy as we wanted. Well worth the time and money.
We even came back to Atlanta with a very nice surprise before our long drive back to Ohio. Sweet baby Chance, Claire's child, was finally home. Claire is my new sister in-law, and my nephew is a pretty cool dude. I'm pumped about taking that little guy to football games some time down the line.
Admittedly, it was difficult to be back at work the next week. I think I am just now finally getting in the groove, which is good considering I'm heading to Chicago in the morning to meet with some donors. Time to pick it back up.
So I will leave you with some photo links from the wedding. There may be some crazy photos in there somewhere, but I think you can easily tell how much fun we had. I couldn't have written the script much better.
Photos from our personal cameras. And yes, I did take a photo or two of the crowd just before my ushers made their way down the aisle.
Photos from the camera of my dear, old friend Brian Newport.
The Numbers have been good friends of mine for several years now, dating back to my time at Wake Forest. They have welcomed Courtney with open arms and have always been very sweet to us both. Here are some photos taken from their perspective.
