June 2, 1990

We were lucky (and thrilled) to be married in Fort Wayne - 19 years ago today.

Married at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception by Monsignor Lester. Reception at the Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce.

Photography by Michael's. Cake by Richard's Bakery. Flower's made by a friend of the family - purchased locally. Additional flower's purchased at Moring's Flowers and Gifts. Catering from a local group (name escapes me).

My wedding dress and the bridesmaid dresses were purchased from some place downtown - name escapes me - will need to dig through my stuff to find that one out. Tuxes rented locally. Horse and carriage (later switched out to a limo because of lightening) provided by local company.

Can you tell? I loved relying on local businesses to help me with all of the details of my wedding. No chains - with the exception of the Tux people - were a part of my wedding.

I wonder if couples getting married now in Fort Wayne - still use local businesses for their happy day.

Oh - and happy 19 years to my loving husband.

Yes, many whoo-haa's to you, your hubby and family! Staying together is God's plan and I hope you are enjoying the fruits of your family.

Life certainly has a way of getting us distacted. I have been too busy myself, but I'm enjoying it as it happens.

When my wife and I got married (very impromtu,in my parents backyard beacuse of my leaving for Army Basic Training), renewed our vows on our 10th, and when our daughter got married, we used everything local! NO CHAINS here either.

Oh by the way - the Cornucopia is still standing and looking defiant!

I have many pictures from different angles (in case you want them).
