    Ouiser.....grumpy? :drama: :rofl: 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 :drama:.

    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 :lol:.

    *****

    I guess no one got my Beatles song re-write in my previous post :fragile:.

    Indeed so, wasn't someone Kween-related quoted as saying that Michelle was named for that Beatles song?

    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!!! :cheer: :saint:

    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.

    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! :lol:

    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. :D

    I love to see Dick Button looking so great! :respec:
    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. :kickass:

    Saw a tweet from Kristi Y on IceNetwork congratulating Michelle, so I guess Kristi wasn't in attendance.

    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. :summer: :respec: :rockstar:

    ^^ 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:
