Well, maybe Sgt. Pepper got the band to play. I dunno.

But this is also the day that RP and I got married.

Yep. Smile

No coincidence (or is it?) that today is also International Geek Pride Day.

Anyway - some pics - first off - this is from my bridal shower -

Next one was taken the night before we got married -

And now for the actual event.
Signing the ketubah -

Me and my folks. First, my father accidentally rips the veil off my head -

Then afterwards, when my mother says to Dad, "See, Bernie, I told ya we'd screw it up!"

Sealing the deal. Under RP's foot is the crushed glass -

Throwing the bouquet. An eight-year-old girl caught it -

But the DJ forgot it, so we danced to this instead -


Please celebrate with us!!

@jespah,
Happy anniversary you two!



A faded wedding photograph
You and me in our first dance
Our eyes are closed
We're lost in one sweet embrace
Since those days the world has changed
Our love remains the same
God knows we've had our share of saving grace


And I'm proud of all the blessings
You have given me
The mountains we have climbed to get this far
You learn to take the laughter with the tears
After all these years


You make it feel brand new
After the fires that we walked thru
Against the odds we never lost our faith


In a house we've made our own
Where our children all have grown
Precious moments time can not erase


Make a livin' up and down the gypsy highway
Seasons that we've beared to share apart
Somehow in my heart I always keep you near
After all these years


After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years


After all these years
You stood by me
The days and nights that I was gone
After all these years
You sacrificed, believed in me
And you stood strong
Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear
After all these years

@jespah,
Congrats.


When I got married I told my wife after 40 years we would evaluate the marriage and decide if it was working out. You're half way there.

@jespah,
Why do you break the glass in the ceremony?

@Ceili,
It's a Jewish tradition that goes back to the ancient days of Kabalah.

Here are a few different interpretations of the ritual.

"The breaking of the glass: At the conclusion of the ceremony, the groom (and in some modern ceremonies, the bride as well) smashes a glass with his foot. (In Israeli weddings, the glass is broken after the ketubah reading)

The meaning of this act is disputed.

One interpretation is that the marriage will last as long as the glass is broken-- forever.

Another interpretation is that people need to remember those who are suffering even in their greatest moments of joy, and to remember the destruction of the second temple.

After the breaking of the glass, the guests yell, "Mazel Tov!" which means good luck."

@jespah,
BTW, congrats on your anniversary celebration. May you have 50 more joyous ones.

My old wedding pics (and the fashion styles) look to be similar...as we got married near Boston's South Shore Oct 25, 1987 (close). I looked to see if we had same Rabbi, too. My ex-wife might still have the pics, wherever she is now. She's been remarried few a few years by now.

@Region Philbis,
Very cool. Rookies rabbis are cool, but could he throw or hit a decent major league overhand curve?
