You may not know but I think Alf is right. Sorry about your friend/coworker.
Oh Anita, I'm so sorry to hear that. In addition to you and your wedding celebrants, you have a whole group, here, who will also be sending good vibes with you. Alf is right, send the video. That is a hopeful thing to do .
Anita, count me in as another who is sending you congratulations & many good vibes. I hope your wedding goes perfectly - whether your hair is straight or curly I know you'll be a beautiful bride. And don't forget, we want pictures!
Many happiness for years to come.
Anita, I am so sorry to hear of the latest update on your friend. I'm sure he would want you to put aside your sorrow and worry about him, and focus on your wedding and start of a new chapter in your life. Yes, it is a very bittersweet time for you right now, but please realize that this is your special day and you need to embrace all the joy you can. Your wedding day is such a fleeting moment in time, and yet such a life-altering event, and I hope it will be everything you have dreamed of.
^^ Nicely said. Have a beautiful wedding, Anita. Much joy and love.
Adding my best wishes on this wonderful day.
May today begin a life filled with the best that life can bring; and great happiness for both of you.
Best wishes Anita, for today and your life together.
But it just occurs to me, how will you refer to him once ALF no longer fits?
I think he would too. I mean, I still think it's uncomfortable to refer to it as "my special day" but it should be a day of happiness regardless. We're gathered for a happy reason. My friend told me she'd take a video with her iPad.
ALF is a great acronym, and I think I'll keep using it.
For the longest time I thought his name really was Alf.
Congratulations to you both!!
Have a wonderful day, Anita + Alf!!
Congratulations Anita and Alf!
Exactly! Thank you all!
Just checking Facebook at the hotel before we go bowling - of course some of the guests got pics up already.
Being coached by the photographer - so glad we got a pro!
Where we got married!
Pinwheels my mom made!

Om nom nom!
All in all, it was a pretty great day. We winged it a bit at the reception, because it was just TOO sunny and the linens we got didn't have holes in the middle to accomodate the table umbrellas. The guys at the venue were really nice and set up some linen-less tables inside so people could be more comfortable. It was fun and I definitely got the sense that everyone had a great time. Great folks, great food, what else could you ask for?
We did have a minor setback - my dad forgot his dress shirt. I had to laugh, because it was just CLASSIC dad. He's always bugging us not to forget stuff, but he's always the one who forgets stuff! Luckily my sister's bf (and Alf, it turns out) brought an extra dress shirt and it fit my dad so YAY.
We're actually having more mixups post-wedding than pre-wedding. One of my aunts made off with my purse (and driver's license) so my cousin had to drive me to the hotel, and then we're doing some telephone-ing and hotel room key swapping to get said cousins (and my purse) back to where they belong!
Congratulations on the marriage!
pretty pictures - looks like a lovely day. Congratulations!
Anita, you're awesome! Finding time to give us a peek! You are radiant and lovely - as expected. I wish you all of life's blessings, happiness, health, and love, as you begin this new chapter of your life.
BTW, I thought husband's name was Alf until a few posts ago ! Does Alf know he's Alf?
Your hair looks great. Congratulations.
Congrats Anita! You look absolutely beautiful and I hope you two have a wonderful, happy life together.
Awww....so happy for you Anita! It looks like you and ALF had a wonderful day. Thanks for the pics, LOVE your venue!
You look beautiful, Anita! I'm very happy for you! Congratulations!
Congratulations Anita! Very happy for you.
Congratulations, Anita! Now forget about us and go have fun with your hubby

Everything looks wonderful; especially the bride and groom,
Congratulations to you both.
What a beautiful day! Congratulations!
Congratulations, Anita and Alf
Congratulations, Anita! Everything looked beautiful, and I love the pinwheels, what an unique and cute idea
All the best to you and Alf!
Congrats Anita...love the pictures!
Anita: Congrats and best wishes to you and Alff (Anita's loveable former fiance). Much happiness.
Weren't you the one we were giving wedding shoe advice to months ago??? Because I just have to say I TOLD you your shoes were going to show in some pics!
Congrats! It looks like it was a beautiful wedding.
I did think about using that one, but that just makes it seem like we broke up.
Yes. And actually, they were already sinking into the grass, so I changed out of those into my regular sneakers for the reception.
Congratulations Anita and ALF!!! What a beautiful wedding. Much happiness to you both.
More pictures from my DSLR-wielding cousin! He was taking video of the ceremony though, so that's why there aren't any pictures of that.

My mom's doggie! He was so good walking down the aisle!

I have no idea what I was doing, but I certainly wasn't making this pose on purpose!
The whole getup!
Cake with cake topper!
Anita! You are a stunning bride! Everything looked beautiful, and I love the tree-lined path!
What a stunning wedding!
Your photographer took some beautiful pictures.
Did you choose the site because of the arbor?
Yes, we took all the group formals on that path. Now to wait the 3 months or so for the pro photographer's stuff.
Actually it was my cousin. He's usually not the most artistic photographer, but it's hard to go wrong with such great outdoor lighting! His photographs for his brother's wedding in a hotel ballroom were decidedly less awesome....
We actually chose it because of all the various environments - the house was awesome AND there was a vineyard, rose garden (although Alf overheated before we got to the rose garden, eh no biggie), some ruins of the old winery, a fountain, and a barn. There was just so much stuff, so many outdoor areas for people to walk around. We definitely loved the variety.
Anita, thanks for sharing the photos. You are a beautiful bride! Your wedding dress is gorgeous, and I loved the pinwheels your mom made. I also loved the wedding cake. Congratulations to you and your handsome husband!
What a venue!
It's everything that someone might want for a celebration, with so many options.
That's a really good picture for not even posing!
