Gum Chewing Wedding!

Yep, 25 years ago, Bob and I were hitched in the 'gum chewing and where the heck is that minister anyway' ceremony at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas.

We were the 7:20 p.m. wedding and elected for the # 3 package.  That included live music!, a wedding photo album, a video, certificate holder (another woohoo!) and fresh flowers!  The only main issues was "where is the minister?"  Well, he was found having a nip in the back parking lot!   That was so funny!

The other noted memory was both  of us were chewing gum, which we swallowed so we could at least say our vows!

Of course, we couldn't wait to get back to the hotel, change clothes and get to the slot machines!
I guess "what happens in Vegas" doesn't always "stay in Vegas"!

Yesterday, Bob and I had our anniversary dinner at Applebee's!  Well, it is Long Island special Thursday and we do like the food...besides, Bob is golfing today so we each had our favorite meal and drinks!  Not a bad night out!


  1. WHAT!?!? We do have a lot in common……’The husband’ and I were also married in The Chapel of the Bells in Las Vegas……..soon to be 50 years. Our photographer friend got so drunk gambling that we had very few photos….what we did have got ruined in our flooded basement when we lived in Illinois. But I’m sure we weren’t as ‘turned out’ as you two….lovely photos…..Happy Anniversary.

  2. LOL! So eighties! Congratulations you two kiddos!

  3. Congrats! I love to hear wedding funnies. We had a few of those ourselves. Looks like you two are a good match.
    xx, Carol
