April and I have cobbled together a series of pictures just to help those guests who need a bit of visual stimulation to help them through the ceremony.  While it's not going to happen tomorrow, I know I have a bad habit of dozing off during most any kind of ceremony so we thought we'd help out a bit by providing something to keep the folks like me awake. 

You can etiher look at them all now, assuming it's within a half hour of the cermony starting, or stop at post ____ when the bride arrives and then follow the ceremony post by post.

Just to be clear, all the pictures come off random sites on the internet.  None of them are real pictures of April, me or any of the bridesmaids, groomsmen (well we're not to sure about who is hiding in Sid's outfit) or guests.

THE VENUE

April and I first met in a Member of the Month Castle over in the old Current Events 11 so, when we decided to get married, it made sense that we should get married in a castle.  We searched high and low for just the right place until we found this old garden hut in Feathered Fish's backyard.
Image

We begged him to let us use it, but he didn't want to have to move his lawn mower, garden tools and ancient bags of fertilizer.  Being a kindly, energetic and creative soul, however, he promptly, and with the encouragement of Sooz and the others here in Voices or Choices, built us our very own fantasy castle.  Please go over to the Wedding Album thread and have a look around it.  The work and ingenuity he put into it is incredible.  April and I will certainly never forget it.

THE WEDDING PARTY

(Just so you know who everybody is)


Image
April - The Bride

Image

Jim - The Groom

Image

The Right Reverend Glitterypickles - the Minister

Image
Sooz - April's Maid of Honour, Manager of Voices or Choices and Our Gracious Hostess

Image

Jabra - My Best Man and the reason why the Bridesmaids will all stay sober tonight

Image

Sidartha - April's cyber bro who will walk her down the aisle and one of my Groomsmen.
(He says he's wearing the sword and armour as a reminder to me to treat April right.  I'd be more threatened if he could actually move in it and if he had his helmet on the right way around.  Instead of Flower Girls, we're going to need little boys with cans of oil following them up the aisle.)

REMEMBERING KATY

One of April's first Bridesmaids and a wonderful supporter of us getting married in cyberland was Katy who, sadly, passed away just a short while back.  Shortly prior to her unexpected passing, though, Katy wrote us this wonderful poem.  April and I will treasure it always and plan to have it framed and hung on our wall.  We're sure you are with us in spirit today,Katy.

We met amidst the chat and posts
With wonderful or lousy hosts
Some people may think a whim
That butterfly loves jimwilliam

But love we do as all can see
With dreams of life and things to be
Together now and evermore
A world before us to explore

Politics and silliness
Turn to love and the stolen kiss
With each post my love just grows
While others may come to blows

Words, opinions disappear
When you, my butterfly, are near
Together here in cyberspace
Makes life easier to face

So come with me my butterfly
Before any more time goes by
Cyber wife as my heart sings
And we fly away on butterfly wings

THE BRIDE PREPARES

Weddings aren't fair.  For the Bride, it takes weeks and months of preparation and, on the big day, she spends hours getting dressed, her hair done just so and her make-up on perfectly.  The groom, not so much.  It was no different for April and I.  Her's April and her bridesmaids getting ready this morning:
