Today is my wedding anniversary(well mine & Bill's) . I have told the story of our wedding day many times, so if you have heard it before you can skip the next paragraph.
We decided we wanted to get married near the water. Bill's sister, Sue, lived on the Albermarle Sound in North Carolina. It was about 3 1/2 hours from our home( we were also living in North Carolina at the time). We really didn't want to give Sue advanced notice because we were afraid she would make too much fuss. Her daughter was getting married a couple of weeks later and she had enough to do. So we arranged for a minister to come to Sue's house around 6 pm on Sept 5th. That morning we set out for their home. We arrived about 1 pm. After hellos we said we need to go to the court house. "Why do you need to go there, did you get a speeding ticket?" "No, we're getting a marriage license." "YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED? WHEN?" "Today." 'WHERE?" "Here!"
While we went to get our license, Ray, Sue's husband, went out an bought a cake. We had a wonderful little ceremony by the water as the sun was setting. One of the happiest days of my life!!
