    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:

    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!" :respec:

    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:

    Oh her dress is beautiful and fits her like a glove. Congratulations to the Kween and I'm also thrilled to see Dick there and looking so happy. I wish he was still commentating, but I guess I can't have everything.

    It's a mixture of feelings because from following skating for years, perhaps for many of us it seems like Dick, Michelle, Dorothy, Peggy, et al, are members of our own family. Michelle's wedding marks a passage for all of us. And it's wonderful to see Dick B who is figure skating personified, happily enjoying this festive and heartwarming occasion for the Kween. Skating memories and personal memories are combined in my heart today. I don't know why I love Michelle so much ... I just do. She inspires love. :saint:

    Thanks for the updated article link! Another great view of Michelle and Clay leaving the church. Too bad the writer keeps getting the name of the street that the church is on wrong... It's Benevolent, not Benefit. But surely both Michelle and Clay (as well as their friends, family and all those they touch and inspire) will benevolently benefit from their happy union. :cheer: And the reception is at The Hope Club. The symbolism and synchronicity never ends. :)

    Michelle looks gorgeous, not that I'd expect her to look anything but... :glamor:

    Both she & Clay look great. I'm so happy for both of them.
