Jenny & Jeff's Wedding - or - Was May 7th Really All That Special?

It's been a long time, folks! I've been busy working on the details of Under a New Moon. But now that it's all set and all the entries have been submitted, it's time to get back to blogging!

So, now that we're already in May, I thought I would make you aware of a very significant day in history -

May 7th.

On May 7, 1660 Isaack B. Fubine patented macaroni.

May 7th, 1983 - A man named August Hoffman broke a record (and proved he had abs of steel) by performing 29,051 consecutive sit-ups!

In 1941 - on May 7th - Glen Miller recorded the "Chattanooga Choo Choo."

But even more importantly, on May 7th of 2008, Jenny and Jeff met for the first time. Then, on May 7, 2010, Jeff proposed.

And yesterday, May 7, 2011 - they were married!

Yes, May 7th really is that special!

The wedding took place at the beautiful Patrick C. Haley Mansion in Joliet! A rainy morning made way for a bright, beautiful (but windy) evening, allowing the ceremony to take place in the lovely garden.

I especially enjoyed seeing the flower girl and her handsome young escort (the adorable Aaron, pictured here) make a dramatic entrance, which was appreciated by the chuckling guests.

Congratulations, Jenny & Jeff! May every May 7th be as happy as this one! It was a joy to be a part of your day.

PS - Mario and Princess Peach on the cake were the perfect touch!
