Jeff and Jose's Wedding Day!

Jose trying to put the corsage on Jeff.
Saturday, June 9 at 11:30 a.m. EDT, our friends Jeff and Jose got married in Washington, D.C.
(Jeff was the best man at our
wedding in 2009, before he met Jose).
Tieing a tie was harder than "tying the knot"

The ceremony: Jose, Ed (officiant), Jeff
   They married in the backyard of Hil and Richard's house, and it was a great weather day- sunny and about 80F. There were six of us and the officiant, making for a nice, intimate legal wedding ceremony.
  The ceremony was really nice and someone in the neighborhood was playing torch songs, and songs by Adele, which actually made it pretty cool!
After the ceremony- it's legal!
  After the ceremony, we went inside and sat down to lunch (they had it catered with sandwiches and they were great). Jeff even made their wedding cake!  We brought little giveaways for everyone (bags) that looked like tuxedo jackets, filled with candy, notepad, pen and bottle of soap to blow bubbles with.

Tom & Richard in the dining room for lunch
  They did the official cake cutting and Rob and Tom brought two CDs to play, so while they cut the cake, Cyndi Lauper sang "Time After Time." (one of their favorites).  Rob also played a classic Cliff Richard song called "Congratulations."   After the cake cutting, we took a group picture outside. It was a very memorable time.

- In September, Jose and Jeff are having their reception in Maine - which will bring all of their family members and friends together. Can't wait!
  Here are some pictures from the event today.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
