Married on the Runway!

After waiting almost an hour for the crashed Lime region to be fixed and brought back up,  we gave up and our wonderful friends marshaled and they went to our home and did a fabulous job of decorating our runway.  Valfalroth Grimm make an arbor in the wink of an eye,  Baccara set out the flowers,  and someone rolled out a red carpet.  Fey Brightwillow and Evie Fairchild were involved too, but I was too excited to really know who did what!

The guests perched all over,  one on the roof, one on top of the arbor, one on top of the Vote Machine!  They sat on the runway wall.  Clyde was full and some had to hang on the edge of Hawthorn looking in.

I am rushing down the aisle!  Garth can’t keep up.  His and his Best Man’s kilt were made by Fey Brightwillow. My gown was made by Frankie Beach.  You may notice that my bouquet is just attached to the front of me.  It was very difficult in those days to control one’s hands. My engagement and wedding ring was made by Torrid Midnight (I am still wearing it).

Getting Ready for Our Wedding

Garth and I picked Thursday, November 22nd to get married in Second Life, we asked Athos Murphy to do the honors of officiating at our wedding.  He not only said yes, he immediately set to work building a fantastic church for us.  He modeled it on the National Cathedral of Washington DC.

We rented the Lime region.  That was the first time the Lindens rented out one of their regions.  We felt quite honored.
We hired the inimitable Baccara Rhodes to be our wedding planner and she and her minions did a wonderful job.  There was a lot of excitement in the Second Life community about our impending nuptials.  Garth asked old buddy CrowCatcher Valen to be his best man.  My dear friend fleabite Beach was my maid of honor and long time friend Hikaru Yamamoto was to be my flower girl.
sidenote: Crow and flea served in the same roles in 2006 in our real life wedding!

Remember this magnificent church was built long before megaprims and sculpties.  Built bit by bit with a normal prim.
Skrull (I don’t remember his last name) had a wonderful organ he had built and he donated it for our use that day.

Here we are grouping before the ceremony,  I am in the halter top,  Hikaru (my flower girl) is next to me.  Haney Linden is the fellow with the blue hair. Garth and Crow are standing at the back. 
We proceeded to get dressed for the ceremony,  I arrived at Lime with my entourage in a Limo Garth made for us.  I had no sooner landed that the dreaded happened!  A grefier attacked and brought the region to it’s knees and we were all knocked off line.
Here we are in our wedding finery waiting for Lime to rise.  But no such luck :-(
