On November 14th, 2009 Peter and Nicole got married!! It was such a beautiful day with some memorable, crazy, funny and not so funny moments.. Because I was out of town for the week leading up to the wedding I didn't have time to get my tux until the night before the wedding.. you can see where this is going already.. So Nicolette, Grace and I were in Boston and flew in on the 13th, went and picked up my tux and then went to the rehearsal dinner and when that was done we went home and we all crashed. The next day was the day of the wedding and when I showed up to get dressed and do pictures and everything I quickly realized that my shirt was about 4 sizes too small! The sleeves barely went past my elbows so I had to keep my jacket on all night. My jacket, by the way, was about 1 or 2 sizes too big.. you think that is all? Guess again.. My shoes were about a half size too small. So besides the fact that my feet hurt a little bit, my shirt was way too short and my jacket was a bit too big, everything else was just great! The day started off with pictures which I thought was funny sometimes because the photographers were a married couple and they spent most of their time fighting with eachother and giving us some cheap entertainment. During the photos, one of the flower girls Sarai got a little sick and threw up shortly after her pictures and before the wedding. She was bummed out that she wasn't able to participate in the wedding. Nicolette and Grace came out to do their pictures and they both looked so beautiful!! Grace looked like a little princess with her hair all done and her little tiara on her head. Nicolette looked amazing in her green dress and her hair and makeup all done up. During the wedding everything went smoothly and everyone looked real nice. It was a happy day. We had a chair right next to Annette's chair in the front row reserved for Richard. We had a white sheet over the chair with his picture on it. Although he was not there in the physical sense, I believe that he was there watching his son get married. After the wedding was over we all went to the hotel where Peter had the ball room reserved for his reception. It was so nice, they had it done up really nice. The DJ for the evening was absolutely terrible.. He kept on screwing up during the introductions and when it was time to introduce Peter and Nicole for the first time he said the wrong couple's name.. Oh well, we didn't let it bother us or ruin the evening.. there was too much fun to have!! We had a chance to catch up with our friends Dusty and his wife Shirley and also Jeremy, Immer and their kids Naomi, Andre, Arianna and Isabelle. It is always good to see those guys! Grace loves playing with the kids and always has fun when she sees them. It was really a neat day to watch Peter get married. I can't believe that he is married now with a kid on the way. I still remember when he was a little guy and we would goof off at his mom's house just doing dumb stuff together. It is going to be really cool to watch him become a father. I am very happy for Pete and Nicole. I really do wish them all the best and all the happiness in the world! ~11/26/09
