Which brings us to this very special day we want to share with you all. We work on contract usually seven days a week for months on end somewhere in North America. These retail contracts are often with public companies and our engagement is very Mission Impossible style. We get a call and a lovely lady on the other end that says here is the zip code, it starts in 24 hours if we win the bid and it will last 12-24 weeks. Do you accept this mission? And poof we are off… Now, planning a wedding with a mission impossible type of schedule was daunting! Not to mention Ed’s family and friends are from PA to NJ to FL. Christie’s family and friends are from AB to ON Canada… and then all our close Gordon Brothers friends and colleagues who at any given time are all over the Continent. So, with this we decided to do something special just the two of us and document it as best as we could to share it with you all in the comfort of wherever you may be today.
So please, raise a glass, and we hope you feel like you were right there with us as you explore the website. By the way, if any of you ever dreamt about a spur-of-the-moment elopement to a far away, windswept seaside hilltop, we highly recommend it! Know you were in our hearts at this very special once in a lifetime moment!
To our family and friends, it means the world to us that you shared in our special day here. THANK-YOU for the support, encouragement, and love and laughter you have contributed to our lives. You are our teachers, partners in crime, guides and favorite people in the world! We hope that you enjoyed our celebration as if you were there with us. Please leave us a little note, a gift of marital advice or a favorite memory we share, but most of all let us know you were here!
Enjoy a look through the photos from our special day and our week spent in Scotland. A few notes of significance are: Ed did not know how to put his very complicated American Irish attire all together. Ian the piper had to help him while the Bride waited patiently for her Groom. Isn’t it usually the Bride who is late? The gentlemen on the beach were all so very well dressed for the perfectly chilly Scottish summer day. However, the Bride in her little white dress was frozen! Even with wool socks and Hunter boots underneath! The whole way through the ceremony little black seals were popping their heads up in the water to watch us, though chilly, it was the best day we could have asked for with the sunny clear skies. It was very touching when Ed took his fly plaid stole off and wrapped Christie up to keep her warm. We choose this special place because Ireland is visible in the distance, and a Campbell tomb is in the background dating to the 1700’s, it was the perfect combination to complement our lineage. All photos are downloadable, feel free to keep the ones that may speak to you!
