Geeks get Married

Ten years ago, Jim and I said 'I Do.' Or at least, I think that's what we said! We had an unconventional wedding. It was his second wedding - my first, but I was 45 years old and had never had the desire for a big, regular wedding. We just wanted to have fun. Our first kiss was on a water taxi in our home town of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, so it seemed appropriate to get married on a water taxi. We got all decked out in our finest geekwear ... hawaiian shirts and propeller beanies - 'propeller-head' is another term for 'geek.' During the ceremony, the patches 'Bride' and 'Groom' got ripped off to reveal 'Wife' and 'Husband.' Cute huh? A notary public friend led us through our homemade vows. Then we partied! And we haven't stopped!

THANKS everybody! And, I just had to post this note that we got via email:
--------------------
We owned the Water Taxi when you were married aboard. got a big kick out of the pictures. The boat is still alvie and well and lives in Fernandina Beach working for Amelia Island Cruises. If you get up that way, pay it a visit.
Happy anniversary.

We definitely need to put Fernandina Beach on our itinerary and take a ride on our wedding taxi again!

First Congrats to both of you and many happy years to come!!!!

Secondly, I'll have you know that Fernandina Beach is only about 30 minutes north of me so there you have the excuse you need to come to the Jacksonville area. :-)

Happy Independance Day!!!!

(There are some shots of Fernandina Beach in my web album)
