...tomorrow, Herr Doktor DGS and I were married on a very hot Saturday at noon at the historic Catholic church in Maryland where F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda are buried. I was getting out the photos for our annual commemorative viewing and thought I'd scan in a few for my blog buddies. We'd used a budget photographer, so the pictures aren't quite the quality I'd aim for now, but the photo above is a candid of the young bride that is one of my favorites--this is before I sweated off all my make-up in the un-airconditioned church.
This is a favorite couple photo by the pro. It was staged after the official ceremony, but you can't light too many symbolic candles, right?
Sorry, Herr Doktor, but I couldn't resist scanning this photo (are you sorry you taught me how?). While I was changing into kimono for our Japanese-style grand re-entrance in new costume, appropriate because we met in Japanese class, my new husband decided to give the maid of honor a visually aided preview of the wedding night.
And yes, that night exceeded all expectations, so much so that the groom was willing to indulge his bride's whim for another costume change--to better understand the male POV, of course. This show of good humor would insure us a life of fun and adventure for two decades and beyond. My Japanese friends loved this picture and said it was proof I'd married a good man. They were right!
A bow of thanks for stopping by!
Oh, I love these pictures! What a lovely couple you are, I can see how much you like each other. May you stay happy and playful together for another 22 years!
Oh, Donna! Congratulations!!
Your posts always seem to give me goose bumps! You're so beautiful and look so happy!
And yes, you do look like you like each other. :-)
Delightful Donna! Happy Anniversary!
Thanks Jane, Neve and Isabel. It does tug at my heart to look through these pictures. And really, what a trooper my guy has been...all those costumes over the years, most of them mine, but still, lol.
Oh wow, happy anniversary!! What fabulous pictures — you look so beautiful!!! And I do love the cross-dressing one. :)
Thanks for sharing these! Congratulations and happy anniversary again to both of you. :)

He looks like a lot of fun, indeed.
Hahah! I just got the joke about the wedding night visual aid preview. You're one lucky bride! :-)
What a fun, smart, sexy, good-looking couple!
Thanks for inviting us along for the relive.
Thanks so much, everyone!
You know ER, I have to confess Herr Doktor exaggerated just a wee bit, maybe a half an inch or so, about his endowment. But yes, I am a lucky woman ;-).
Happy happy anniversary!! You look BEAUTIFUL and still do....
Happy Anniversary to you both! What great pictures -- you both look adorable and like you were having the time of your lives! So many forget that weddings should be fun, and your certainly looks like it was! Hope your anniversary is just as fun!
these photos make me misty-eyed! happy anniversary, dear friends.
