Yep, that’s right, we finally got married. I’ll save the details for when we have illustrative images from our esteemed scottographer, but suffice it to say that the day was beautiful, the ceremony lovely, the choir impressive, the flowers perfect, the food delicious, the dancing a blast, the location amazing… everything just as we had hoped. (Our crowns and bouquets even made the Broadturn Farm blog.)
Since the wedding meant that I basically did nothing relating to my dissertation for the entire month beforehand, it’s probably a good thing I am here at Cornell for the remainder of the summer, even if it means separation and no honeymoon to speak of. Though I think the entire crew of the Mikä Vene would agree that we sure had a great time in the week we spent in Maine afterward.
If you’re really itching for visuals, to tide yourself over you can wander over to Anna’s blog and take a look at some photos from the “bachelorette party” my friends threw for me when I was back in Madison in May. (I put this in quotes not for any reason that is apparent from the photos themselves, but because the period prior to dinner involved a hike at Devil’s Lake and a great deal of geological discussion about the Great Unconformity. Plus, dudes were there.)
But, yes, Cornell: time to really kick-start the writing! Next on the docket: chapter six.
