Anniversary

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.

Crongrats Andrew!

Thanks to all. And yes, Chris had to wear the Civil War tie for the wedding. It was appropriate considering the location, I suppose. We discussed having the wedding at Fort Fisher, but I'm glad we did it at Brunswick Town-Fort Anderson. It couldn't have been a better setting.

Congratulations Andrew!

I hope that you two have many, many more!

I STILL don't understand how a mutt like you got lucky enough to win a lovely lady like Lori, but then, I can't understand why my wife has put up with me for 25 years. Go figure. -GRIN-

Thanks Mike. I look forward to seeing you this weekend at Ghost Walk.

Well shipmate, I will be there and looking forward to it. But for me it will be more like a ghost limp/gimp rather than a walk. -grin-
