On Sunday, July 22nd, Brutus of Wyde and Nurse Rachet were married by a wild eyed rouge preacher in a unconventional ceremony in secret high country location just outside Yosemite. Each had one lovely daughter as a witness.

It was beautiful but sadly, the stealth ceremony meant that there was no wild reception afterwards where intoxicated friends toasted appreciations and embarrassing stories for the crowd. That's what this thread is for.

These are two of the finest humans I know. Some folks act cool but the more you know them, the more their selfishness and human weakness becomes obvious. That's normal and I accept it. For Bruce and Em though, the more I know them, the greater they are and the more I admire them. I'll post more in a week or so.

Have at em! Toasts to Brutus and Em!

Congrats to the two of you! I love marriage (even though I've tried it now three times). It's not a job--it's an adventure.

Bruce and Em,

Congratulations! What was the rating to get to the ceremony site?

Did the bride wear a white harness?

You guys are great.

i spoke to them on saturday morning in the TM grill parking lot, and when i introduced M to my wife for the 1st time, she sure seemed happy about it- or just to be in a very good mood that morning- i guess it makes perfect sense now!

karl, are you calling yourself a wild eyed rogue now?
