Just Married

The seven days that Pepper was gone Bryan spent every waking moment painting her room and cheater on-suite. He had three to four hours sleep all but two nights. Where he had five hours one night , and the last night he only had two, which he considered relinquishing completely!
The room and furniture were all painted Benjamin Moore Onyx. More less black. We had a mess of cardboard and Styrofoam along with junk from the room cluttering up the hall ways. Everything was in disarray! I Wish I'd taken pictures, it was a nightmare! The final result is revealed at the end of this post!
From a small girl, when she first fell in love with trolls, she knew she'd never be married in a white dress. Even though she is most deserving of that right, she's never liked to wear white clothing of any sort. Red or purple were her color choices even way back then. After a long search for a dress, she settled on the red. Happily trying to recreate a forties look similar to my mothers modest wedding.
Early in the relationship, they knew they'd elope. Having worked in the wedding industry they both knew it would be a lot less stress. And I really think it was! The planning was to a minimal. There was detailed prep, but for the most part there was no outside pressure. I always wanted my daughter to have an economical wedding, with more focus on the relationship and less on the fantasy of a wedding. But ultimately I wanted her to be happy, and make a choice suitable to who she is, rather than conforming to societal pressures.
So with the bride in a red dress, and the groom in red shirt and shoes they flew to Vegas with Bryan's sister Ava and brother-in-law Jon to be married in a small chapel. So far they have attended an all day trade show and spent the night prior to the wedding dancing on the bar at coyote Ugly. The owner of the company who accompanied Pepper to London, showed up in Vegas and together they partied with Bryan, Ava and Jon, all night long.

My friends and I celebrated at a restaurant, where I told them the news. Many will be shocked but not surprised that they are married. It did seem inevitable, as I imagine them as this old couple with matching red vortex coats and dark converse runners. Still taking the bus on occasion!
So yesterday at 5:15 pm on Valentines day this sweet couple who've been together five years tied the knot at the Graceland church in Vegas, where many famous people have been before them! Both thrilled and more in love than ever.

Stayed tuned for Wedding pictures.
