Discussion in 'Great Skate Debate' started by floskate, Jan 19, 2013.
Christine Brennan and Phil Hersh were invited (both just tweeted).
Ouiser.....grumpy? I'm just pissed 'cause I sat on a damned bag of tomatoes at Truvy's salon....plus, I can't seem to find anyone to install my track lighting .
I just wish I'd been able to see Miss Merry Christmas smokin' everything but her shoes with ole whats-his name over the holidays .
I guess no one got my Beatles song re-write in my previous post .
Got it, my belle!
Indeed so, wasn't someone Kween-related quoted as saying that Michelle was named for that Beatles song?

Awww, Michelle and Karen both look beautiful.
So excited for Michelle and Clay!!
A lifetime of joy and happiness to this very special couple!
Sounds like a bell ringing ... and "every time a bell rings an Angel gets their wings." In Michelle's case today, she and Clay get their wedding rings!!!
Congratulations to Michelle and Clay! :hearts: :hugs: :memories:
Kudos also to Michelle for keeping the special day and time off the radar till the penultimate moment. The church indeed is on an aptly named street. I'm sure it will be a wedding fit for the Kween! Wow, I wonder if any long time MKF members/ admins were invited? And who else in the skating community were so honored besides Phil and Christine? Of course Karen and Peter O are there, and Brian B ... likely Dick B, Peggy F, Dorothy H, Frank C, and Kristi Y were also invited.
Spot on timing and superb synchronicity for the Kween! Wishing Michelle and Clay a beautiful, productive and rewarding life together.
And this from Christine B, beautiful even though a bit blurry:
Christine Brennan has a (very blurry) photo of them coming out of he church on her Twitter feed. Clay looks dashing in his military uniform and what you can make out of Michelle's dress is gorgeous.
Congratulations to Michelle and Clay! Wishing them all the happiness in the world.
Seems Clay wore his dress uniform -- too bad Christine Brennan's photo skills are lacking -- that picture is sooooooo blurry!
@christinebrennansports tweeted a second, better photo:
One more as Michelle Kwan and Clay Pell leave the church. 6.0's all around. http://pic.twitter.com/MaBBjxOt
@olyphil tweeted: Michelle and clay leaving the church http://pic.twitter.com/GxF5STsz
"Other skating royalty at Kwan-Pell wedding: Dick Button, Dorothy Hamill, Brian Boitano."
Brennan again: Dick Button among the guests at Kwan wedding. http://pic.twitter.com/qJJO1HcL
Thanks! This same photo was published with this brief article in the Providence Journal: http://news.providencejournal.com/b...olympian-michelle-kwan-marries-clay-pell.html
CONGRATS MICHELLE!!! LONG LIVE THE KWEEN!!!
I'm sure more photos will appear shortly!
She looks beautiful and so happy. Because I'd have shed a tear if I'd been there.
I'm so happy for both of them.
BTW, Happy Birthday, centerstagequeen! Beautiful day, innit?
Love the dress! She looks lovely. His uniform is nice but can't really see much of him. Congrats!
Well, now we know why Christine & Phil are writers, not reporters! But glad that they managed a few anyway. Dick Button looks great.
Thanks Sylvia ... the updates are coming fast now.
A little bit of the detail on MK's dress can be seen in the better Christine B photo. Can't wait to see more photos, and some videos. Beautiful Kween and her dapper Coast Guard Prince.
So glad to see Dick there happy and healthy too!
I love to see Dick Button looking so great!
What I can see of the dress and the whole look, I love, as expected. Strapless, soft mermaid (satin with organza overlay?) with applique of flowers or snowflakes, the latter would have been so appropriate--winter wedding, ice skating. A very romantic look.
Sylvia: Thanks for all the additional pictures -- Michelle looks so happy -- I love her dress! I knew that Uncle Dick would be there -- and he definitely looks "spiffy!"
Saw a tweet from Kristi Y on IceNetwork congratulating Michelle, so I guess Kristi wasn't in attendance.
Tom Collins was also there according to CB.
We are sure to hear about this at the next week's Nationals!
Something more to be happy about, on this wonderful day!
Congrats to Michelle and Clay. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.
I'd love to see a copy of the wedding invitations and learn more about the wedding and the reception. Hopefully they both have time in their schedule to get away for a long two-week Honeymoon! Here's to the Kween and her Prince.
I feel I'd never gotten a good look at Clay Pell and this article has a good picture of him, MK and the rock (big 'un!) http://stylenews.peoplestylewatch.c...michelle-kwan-wants-a-vera-wang-wedding-gown/
Talks about Vera Wang doing the dress.
^^ Yes, that's old news. It already appeared in the original MK engagement announcement thread. But thanks for providing another link in this thead.
You and me both!
Congratulations to the happy couple! Love the photos and can't wait to see more details of the event.
Another one if the link is working..
^^ That's the best detail of the dress, yet! Thanks!
In the original engagement thread, there were other close-up photos of Michelle and Clay together at a charity benefit:
lol it's sad that i'm so happy dick button was there and looks great
Be happy, MLP. Uncle Dick is first rate.
Thanks! How old is Clay?
I believe he's 30 or 31.
