My niece was married this last weekend at a historic hotel overlooking the ferry terminal on Orcas Island, WA. The wedding was held at 6:30pm so that the Washington State Ferry would be behind them for the ceremony. We’d arrived via ferry a few hours before and had traveled to the other side of the island to check into our B&B (about 20 minutes away) and had plenty of time to get dressed and drive back. But for some reason the hubby decided to change his suit at the last minute (Who packs two suits? I didn’t even know he owned two!) and the next thing I knew we were racing back to the other side.
After spending the better part of the trip behind someone traveling 10 miles UNDER the speed limit while being followed by someone clearly in more of a hurry than us, we finally arrived at the hotel. We spent a few minutes trying to find a place to park and by the time we did it was 6:40pm. I thought to myself as we walked in that no wedding starts on time so 10-minutes late shouldn’t be a problem.
Boy, was I wrong. We got there in time for them to exchange their vows. Oops! Still it was a sweet wedding in a gorgeous location and here’s hoping these two make a wonderful life together.
