Yes, the rumors were true – Telene and I are now married! Holy cow!
We both seem to have an afterglow following the wedding, together with a strong sense of how incredibly right and timely this is for both of us.
The ceremony happened outside on the terrace at the Cliff House – a beautiful venue atop of San Francisco’s never ending ocean beach. Our dear friend Donna conducted the ceremony with a graceful touch and purity. Even San Francisco’s world famous fog was welcome (this may be a bit selfish – try wearing a three-garment tuxedo under the sun; I bet girls in open dresses had other things to say about the fog).
The band performance was phenomenal, and the wedding reception lasted well over our original estimate. Which is a good thing, because we also managed to have a lot of fun along the way. Add the 2-night stay at the spectacular W hotel in SOMA that followed, with a pool and spa and unbelievable room service, and it’s certainly going to be the weekend to remember.
Next step to celebrate – is our honeymoon month in Thailand, but that’s not until March 2007… Meanwhile, I am back at the Blurb’s office, Telene’s back at school and so it’s back to life as we know it. Although I may have to stress test BookSmart software building our very own wedding book.
And very special thanks to the relatives and friends, who made it out, often from far overseas, to witness our vows and the drinking that followed…
