Today’s our wedding anniversary. I wanted to share a few photos, some new, some already seen.
My bouquet. I wanted a “whiff of decay.” By Sarah at Saipua, in Red Hook Brooklyn.
My youngest sister loaned me a pair of earrings. Something borrowed. I can’t remember what was blue. I loved my hair, held up elaborately and a little goofily with various Swarovski crystal, quartz, and river stone hairpins. River stones, like pebbles.
On our way up to the pre-ceremony photos. San Francisco’s City Hall is quite something. We held our ceremony on the 4th floor.
My husband-then-to-be and I, alone before the ceremony.
My beautiful children and I, together before the ceremony.
The ceremony set up itself. Simple folding chairs, unsimple flowers.
Our wedding rings. Mine new, his old from my family. Gouverneur Morris Carnochan wed Matilda Grosvenor Goodrich on Oct. 30 * 1888.
Married. Walking out to catch an Uber.
I designed and made the table cards myself. The other side had the menu. I was very proud of my handiwork.
It doesn’t take much.
More than 17 bottles of wine.
My children, on the sidewalk outside the restaurant for a red wine removal project, pouring sparkling water on my dress. It worked.
The evening winds down. My sister-in-law brought bubbles and wands.
I remain happier than I had known to be possible. Have a wonderful weekend.
