Gettin’ Hitched

Well, here we go. Tomorrow I get married to the greatest gal I’ve ever met and I couldn’t be happier. It’s looking a bit like it will rain, and the wedding is outside. I guess we will just have to suck it up and break out the Slip N’ Slide. Thanks to everyone for all the well-wishings and suggestions along the way. I am off for a much needed vacation. Some friends will be helping with the Daily Photos all next week. Be back soon!

It’s totally crazy that you guys are getting married tomorrow. Weren’t you just in Italy, like, yesterday? Anyway, even if it isn’t warm and sunny, you’ll have the perfect “Heathcliff on the moor” romantic day. Congrats again, you two!

6. Kevin O’Keefe says… oct 13, 2005 | 1:49 pm

Congrats Jason and wish you guys a life of success together.

Enjoy the day as well. Never again will you have people, some of who you have never met before, treat you like a millions bucks and wait on you hand and foot.

And a long overdue thanks for turning me onto Greg Storey. A great guy that is going to contribute to our success in a big way.

Can’t wait for the entry about how the event went!

16. Chris J. Davis says… oct 13, 2005 | 4:27 pm

Congrats Jason, time flies by in a dizzying fashion, and before you know it you are watching your first child being born.

Enjoy these years when it is just you and her; they are priceless.

Rock on, amigo.

20. Nathan Smith says… oct 13, 2005 | 7:01 pm

Congrats! I’ve been married a little over a year now. I’m sure you’ve got tons of advice already, but I’ll throw it out there again: communication is key. :)

21. Todd says… oct 13, 2005 | 7:07 pm

Congratulations Jason, I wish you the best of luck.

22. Fred Faulkner says… oct 13, 2005 | 7:13 pm

Congrats Jason! I’m approaching 2 years and it was the best thing that has happened to me. Next you’ll get the whole “when is the baby coming?” but enjoy the “free” time while you have it. I’m holding out a little longer. ;-)

23. Smallest Phot says… oct 13, 2005 | 7:28 pm

Best of luck to you both. Don’t worry about the rain - it’s supposed to be good luck.

24. Michael McCorry says… oct 13, 2005 | 8:17 pm

All the best. My advice, switch your brain off and go with the flow. Before you know it, you’ll be like “Um, what just happened?”. Enjoy the day, and all that comes after.

25. Ara Pehlivanian says… oct 13, 2005 | 8:49 pm

Congratulations man! Enjoy the day and the time off. I hope you have a sunny day tomorrow!

26. Matt Downey says… oct 13, 2005 | 9:12 pm

As a recently married man, it’s true what they say about the day going very fast. It seems like for the past forever you’ve done nothing but prepare, rush, and panic. Now that the day is here, make sure to take the time to enjoy yourselves.
Congratulations, marriage is a wonderful thing!

27. Keith says… oct 13, 2005 | 9:24 pm

Congrats. You’ll have a great time!

28. Rob L. says… oct 13, 2005 | 9:42 pm

All best to you and the soon-to-be Mrs. Stan!

29. Asela says… oct 13, 2005 | 9:59 pm

Congrats! Have a great day!

30. Ranjani says… oct 13, 2005 | 10:31 pm

Have an awesome wedding! I hope it stays a wonderful day (or you could trade that rain for good ol’ Houston weather if you’re so inclined) and that you and your wife-to-be enjoy yourselves ^_^

Congrats to both of you!

31. Jonathan Eckmier says… oct 13, 2005 | 10:54 pm

Congratulations, and all the best!

32. Trungie says… oct 13, 2005 | 11:08 pm

37. steve says… oct 14, 2005 | 7:27 am

Have a great day and good luck for the future, you don’t know me and I don’t really know you, but I often check out your site, so I feel I know you!!

All the best

39. Jens Meiert says… oct 14, 2005 | 8:30 am

All the best!

40. Jim Renaud says… oct 14, 2005 | 8:47 am

Nice! Marriage rules and weddings are a blast, especially if they are yours. All the advice is the same because it’s true: slow down and keep it all about the lucky bride and you. You’ll have time for others after the honeymoon. Trust me, you’ll have to show countless people photographs for hours!

Enjoy and congrats!!!

41. Peter Monaco says… oct 14, 2005 | 10:53 am

Good Luck to you and congratulations. I really enjoy reading your site. I’m just starting the wedding planning process myself, so I’m sure its a relief that its almost over. Enjoy your day and I hope the sun pokes it head out for you.

42. Alex says… oct 15, 2005 | 12:22 pm

What will the lucky lady’s four-letter nickname be, praytell?
