Roxanne and I were married on Saturday in a tiny ceremony in our backyard, with our immediate families and two formally dressed cats. The third cat slept through it.

The skies parted, the sun came out for a miraculous two-hour window and we were able to tie the knot beneath the now-mature chocolate vines of the arbor Roxanne erected five years ago. You might think we planned it this way.

Then the bride proceeded to her grilling station, as one does.

Felicitations! Pardon me while I research chocolate vines. "Traditionally, the vines have been used for basket-weaving which may help reduce the spread of this plant in the Eastern United States." Huh?
Congratulations again!

I have many questions about the chocolate vines, but I owe her a phone call anyway.
Congrats to you both! and to think we met you in your carefree single days, all of...a month ago :)
Wonderful news. Congratulations!
Congrats! Couldn't be happier for you both.
Hot damn! Warmest congratulations. Grown up weddings are the best.
Thanks all! We must agree, grown-up weddings are the best.
Mazel Tov!!!
I completely missed this!

When I was young, my mother told me you say "congratulations" to the groom and "best wishes" to the bride. To this day I don't know if she was being cheeky or not. Anyway Congratulations and Best Wishes! Much happiness wished to you both
Thanks! And, LOL
AAAH! Congrats! I've been away from here for quite a while so I'm doing a binge catch-up and I find _this_!
