Ten years ago today, on May 27, 2006, Hubby and I were married. The happily ever after continues every day we are together. I married a wonderful man who is the love of my life, and couldn’t be happier.
Here are some photos of our wedding day. I was clearly very, very happy that day, and thrilled to be marrying such a great guy.
The photo above is our wedding rings laid in my bouquet. Hubby has added to his wedding ring collection over the years. I think he’s up to 7 or 8 rings now. He’s lost a lot of weight since our wedding, at one point being down 90 pounds (I think he is now 70 pounds down from our wedding day), so he got new rings to accommodate that weight loss. Either that, or he just likes to collect wedding rings.
As for me, I seldom wear my engagement and wedding ring duo except on special occasions. I now sport a 10 year anniversary band that Hubby bought me for Christmas last year.
We were married at the Butler Mansion (the Jacobs Executive Center) in Buffalo. I had worked at a church for a number of years prior to our marriage, and we had the pastor for that church (now closed) perform our ceremony. We were married in the gardens, and it was truly lovely. Sonny-boy was our only attendant (he and Hubby’s brother signed the license).

The reception is still remembered fondly by our friends and relatives. It was a very nice everything. The venue was gorgeous, the food delicious, the hors d’oeuvres generous, and the liquor and wine flowed freely.
Unfortunately, the interior pictures our professional photographer took kinda sucked. It was a bit dark in the room, and it looks like he didn’t adjust much for lighting. I also had to make the photo above and directly below larger, which didn’t help clarify the picture at all.
The one above is of the ice carving they used to also cool down wine. Very impressive in person!
The cake was from Muscoreils and simply stunning in person. And, as anyone who has ever been to Muscoreils has probably figured out, it tasted pretty good too.
We gave out as our favors small cakes that complimented our wedding cake. This was 10 years ago, and David Muscoreil had never heard of such a thing when I asked at him to bake them! Who knew I was cutting edge and it became “a thing” later? He was game though, and did a fabulous job of fabricating all those mini-cake favors.
Mere words cannot describe how happy I was that day (and still am most days). Even though my hair looked like crap (hey, priorities!), I was still ecstatic the entire day and was walking on Cloud 9.
And a smooch to end the day… and the hope of at least another 10 fabulous years with my wonderful husband.
