|It's been a long
but wonderful day.
Some of the
highlights of the last 24 hours:
Elizabeth did not do well at rehearsal. She
refused to go down the aisle or even get near the ring bearer.
At the rehearsal dinner, I cried three times.
The first time was when the groom's father gave a toast and publicly blessed the couples
