Speechless!


We tied the knot! On Friday, Linda May McLaughlin of Tigard, Oregon and I got married at Blackberry Meadow, McMenamins' Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon.


I was speechless when I saw her. She was wearing an exquisite gown made just for her by Sonia Kasparian of Urchin Bespoke Bridal. If the designer's name rings a bell, it could be that she appeared on the most recent season of Project Runway on Bravo.


It was a warm afternoon and there was Hawaiian music in the air when we walked in. Our guests let out a collective gasp. We were glowing with happiness and bursting with love. Several of the guests got a little misty eyed. We did, too.


Jake Ferreira officiated the ceremony, reminding everyone that they were, and would continue to be, our loving support system. There's a lot more we could say, but most of all Linda and I wanted to thank everyone who was involved; our family and friends, people who were working at the event, and all our friends and family who could not be there. Mahalo!
