Yes, it was a proud moment. My youngest child got married yesterday.
There was snow on the ground, but the bride and groom still had seashells sprinkled under their feet. The bride wore Cali's old baptism dress -- a white lace gown (stained yellow from age) and a beautiful lace belt that she turned into a headress.
Carson wore his Sunday best. He forgot to tuck his shirt in, but it was buttoned all the way up.
The happy couple is going to wait at least 15 years to celebrate their honeymoon. It will take them that long to get jobs and save up. Until then, they will spend their time together playing Betty Spaghetti and Polly Pockets.
In order to pass himself off as "legally old enough to wed", the groom carried a cane.
The bride's only requirements for her bridesmaids were to 1)look cute and 2)be able to stand on one leg.
The parents of both the bride and the groom were both pleasantly surprised that the whole ceremony cost next to nothing. The only expense was the reception which was held at the local Carl's Jr.
