those of you who were not able to be at the wedding (and even those of you who
were), here are the highlights of the day. It did rain and it was cold, but the
wedding went off with just the one (intended) hitch! We did all of our posed
portraits prior to the ceremony to get them out of the way, and then we went
straight to the Binghamton Club for the ceremony and reception.
There was a
little bit of drama leading up to this point, not the least of which consisted
of Stacey's dress being completely re-altered when she got to Binghamton on
Wednesday afternoon, which was not the original plan. She took it to get pressed
by a local seamstress and tried it on one more time just to be sure there were
no buttons missing or hems coming loose. All was well
seamstress decided that it had been sewn all wrong for her. While Stacey was
standing up on the pedestal, feeling like a princess in front of the three-way
mirror, the seamstress said, "Are you happy with the way this looks?" and
proceeded to yank out her seam ripper and rip the seams of the dress! While
Stacey was wearing it! Three days before the wedding! Karyn nearly passed out
and Stacey was frozen in fear. But ultimately, she was right and the dress had
not been properly fitted the first time. And god bless her, she did the whole
thing on time and perfectly. In the end, everyone was praising her talent, and
also making a mental note to, in the future, bring garments to her well in
advance of the date you hope to wear them to avoid near heart attacks.
two weeks before the wedding, the tuxedo shop had lost Aleck's measurements and
forgotten that Ron was a part of the wedding party and needed a tuxedo for the
day. But again, miraculously, it all came out just fine and everyone had a
tuxedo that fit them well.

pictures all went very well and everyone looked great! It did start pouring rain
during the photo shoot, which took place at a different location than the
wedding and reception, causing a little nervousness for the bride, but
the rain all cleared up before she actually had to set foot outside. Hey, at
least it wasn't snow! After this, it was on to the ceremony.
