Twelve Years and Only Yesterday

It was held in an old Masonic temple.

We entered the reception, introduced as Mr. and Mrs. Shawn and Emily Burns, to the “The Throne Room” from Star Wars.

I screwed up the Garter Toss.

Emily got cake on my face even though I could have sworn we’d said we weren’t going to do that.

I was given a corsage to wear instead of a boutonniere, and nobody noticed except the minister. He made a switch for me later, but not before many pictures were taken.

Emily’s mother saved a plate of shrimp for me from the hors d’oeuvres reception, which was being held while the wedding party was having pictures taken. Shrimp are my favourite.

We ran through a shower of bubbles to get to the limo.

We lived happily ever after.
