Five years ago today, Lori and I were married in the ruins of St. Philip's Anglican Church at Brunswick Town-Fort Anderson State Historic Site. It was a perfect day, with beautiful weather and the church ruins were decorated with fall flowers and pumpkins. The guest list was small (not more than 25-30 family and close friends). A college friend of mine who became a Lutheran minister performed the ceremony, and my best man was Dr. Chris Fonvielle.Since Lori has a policy of not allowing me to post her photo on the blog, here's a photo of Chris Fonvielle and me on the wedding day
As I was looking at my Mariner's Book of Days this afternoon, I found that we share this anniversary. On this day in 1851, Herman Melville's Moby Dick was first published.
