Thanks for the congrats! I really appreciate it.
The weather did cooperate. It was a stellar day. What you can't see in the photo is the ocean. The tent were we had the ceremony and reception was right on the water. I had the car a little bit away from the general gathering.
To answer some of your questions:
There were a lot of Oohhs and Aaahs. Many of my family and friends had only heard about the car and had not seen it. Many of Marni's friends and family had not even met me so they were impressed with the groom's wheels. (that was for you Andrew :wink: ) Marni and I were not the only people photographed in front of the car that day. Marni's sister was the maid-of-honor and did want to do a little "decorating". I told her that I thought Pininfarina did a fine job already although later I did submit to a ribbon on the antenna. For a honeymoon we are spending a week in New Orleans next month. We did have the bridal suite at a local Inn for the night of the wedding.
No, I did not get a hard time for wanting a couple of pics with the car. I did get a few comments from the onlookers for giving it a quick "dusting off" before the photos. She got all the pics she wanted down by the water with the wedding party, etc. The whole wedding was basically her show. I didn't say too much. I only had a couple of requests and the shot with the car was one of them. I wanted that shot specifically to post it on this website to share with you guys.
I look forward to any other comments. I have been sharing this thread with Marni and having her read the responses. I want her to see the people who I am communicating with when she comes out of the bedroom at 3 in the morning rubbing her eyes, seeing me at the computer and saying "what are you doing?".
