The union is complete

If you are reading this, then Gigglez and I are married!

There will be more details to follow.


For those that are in the Vancouver/Portland area, you are all welcome to come up to the Back Alley Bar & Grill for the post-reception party, starting at 8pm.

You will find all of the details on our website,

As pictures become available, I will share them on that site, and maybe some here as well.

The parties from Saturday

OMG… I do not get hangovers often, but I was still under the influence when I woke yesterday morning.

For those that attended, that you very much!

For the bachelor party, great trip, lifelong memories made there, and a special thanks to Duz, my best man (and I am sure that the maid of honor played a supporting role there) and our driver Robyn.

I think I am almost re-hydrated now.

We had a great crowd in the house that night as we had a birthday party for one of the regulars, as well as a birthday party for one of the member from the band Motorbreath.

For some reason it was felt that I needed some of the veil material bobby-pinned to the back of my hair. Okay, no problem I am a humorous guy. Being the size that I am, I did find it interesting that nobody pitched my crap about it. Even when I was given the hair band with the two bobble-dicks to wear. (there is a picture of that on facebook…)

The night gets really fuzzy after someone started feeding me shots of fireball, then jagerbombs.

I was a source of entertainment on the way home, and they were surprised that I made it up the stairs unassisted.


Wedding stresses

Good morning,

Last night the officiant for our wedding let us know that her new job was sending her to Chicago for the week of the wedding. She is scheduled to fly back the day/night before the wedding.

Now we all know how Chicago can be for weather, so this of course has us quite concerned.

Now to find a backup officiant JUST in case.

What did Griz do over the weekend?

I performed my first legal wedding service!

I am not sure who was more nervous, myself or the wedding couple.

They were friends from Back Alley who were going to do a JP wedding, but the gang overruled and Gigglez reminded them that I was ordained.

Before 24 hours had elapsed, the wedding plans were getting out of hand and had to be corralled. It ended up being a two and a half page service and attendees were highly complimentary of my performance. It sure would be nice if I could memorize that much text.

I went home and grabbed a nap as I was short sleep from working the bar the night before. We ended up heading to the bar to celebrate our groups victory at the accomplishment.

Waiting for some pictures to come in of the services.
