Gallery 11: Here Comes The Bride ...

Recently, my Dad and I embarked on an extensive 12 hour road trip from Western New York to the community of Corolla in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.   The occasion: my cousin and her now-husband were joined in holy matrimony.   Here, jeffthomas.com brings you all of the highlights from this spectacular wedding and reception, with none of the funky smells that are associated with two guys riding in a car together for 12 hours.  Isn't the Internet great?

The Complete Ceremony, At A Glance ...

Wedded Bliss!
1. Enter the bride, escorted by her father.  Of note to jeffthomas.com enthusiasts is the fact that the man pictured here introduced me to the world of Mad magazine almost three decades ago.

2. After a brief exchange of vows and some lovely readings, my cousin and her new husband flee the chapel, successfully avoiding detection by Bob Eubanks and his "Newlywed Game" crew.

3. My aunt and uncle follow their daughter and new son to the exit, pausing briefly for my uncle to ask the reverend forgiveness for his part in the disturbing effects that Mad magazine caused in his nephew.

4.  Who says that snapping picture after picture of the pretty girl in the red dress doesn't pay off?  Sometimes, when a minister gets in the way, the result can be a cool shot of the church bell being rung, like this one.  This signals the end of the wedding ceremony.


Outside The Chapel ...

After the ceremony, the new bride hugs a friend, while her husband fields questions from the press.

In their color-coordinated outfits, my Dad, aunt and uncle taunt me for my lack of fashion sense.

The Reception ...

Wedded Bliss!
Dad continues to pick on me, this time joined by the maid of honor, the bride's sister.

Mmmmm.  Cake.  Dessert was so good that it gets two pictures on this page.

The meticulously planned reception almost goes awry when the balloons unexpectedly inflate to super-human size!

My Biggest Fan ...

Wedded Bliss!
Inside the Corolla Hunt Club, here I am with the bunk beds in which my Dad and I slept.  I got the one on the top.  Note its close proximity to the rapidly whirling ceiling fan.  Wagers were taken as to whether I would get decapitated by its blades during a late-night trip to the bathroom.

Along The Way ...

Some highlights from the drive, which were taken through the window of my Dad's VW Bug.  The one on the left is a ship that we saw in Newport News, Virginia.  Also somewhere in Virginia, the photo on the right shows a giant GEICO [car insurance] building, which should not be confused with a giant Gecko, as any good television spokeslizard would tell you.
